Wish to contact anyone researching the John WINCHELL, family. I am descended through his daughter Elizabeth, b. 1805 in NY. She married Samuel MARKHAM in 1827 in St. Joseph County. They moved to Cass County, Pokagon Twp, until 1847 when Samuel led a wagon train over the Oregon Trail to Oregon City, OR. Elizabeth's sister Otelia and her husband Adam POLK were among the pioneers traveling in the wagon train.

I have an old photograph taken around 1850 of a MARVILL gentleman. I also have some other documents of his that I bought at an auction in Virginia several years ago. I would like to get these into the hands of MARVILL family descendents as none of the names mentioned in the documents touch on any of my family lines.

MARVIN family includes: John William Marvin (1909-1990) Lawrence Edward MARVIN (1868-1931) and Edward MARVIN (1864-1909) The PARKER family has one of my big problems. Ada Erminnie Parker(1874-1965), married to Lawrence E. MARVIN, is the daughter of John or Charles PARKER and Minnie Augusta GRAHAM. Since Ada lived in St. Joseph County, I can't help but wonder if the PARKER/GRAHAM family ended up living there, too. I do not have death or family information for them.
