Hi folks. While digging up my mother's ancestral roots(and they go pretty far!), I recently came across the Felix family. This particular Felix family seems to have a pretty interesting backstory: it seems they were actually originally located in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, after coming to this continent from Germany. From that point on, though, at least some of them branched: John William & and John Peter, in particular, went in two radically different directions: the latter settled in Pa. and John William went straight to Virginia. J.W. had two children there, Elizabeth, or "Betsey", born in 1774, and Samuel in 1779.
Samuel is my 5th great grand uncle, and I'd like to know if he ever had any children.
If this helps, btw, I've got a record of him living in White Co., Illinois in 1850:
Any information would be appreciated, as I endeavor to continue expanding my family tree. =)
