To: BJ Amos Re: Mary Fellers married Peter Shride, born OH, 1827
I have Mary (Mollie) Feller, born 1 Dec 1827 and died 29 Mar 1865.I know little of her first spouse, Peter Shride, although Mary & Peter Shride were shown in the 1850 census for Bloom Twp, Fairfield County, OH, living with her parents Frederick & Susan Feller.I am aware of one child of this marriage, Sarah A. Shride, apparently born after the 1850 census.
The second husband of Mary Feller (1827-1865) was Jacob Swoyer, born 8 Sep 1821 and died 16 Jun 1885.They were married 16 Sep 1860.Both are buried in Lithopolis Cem'y, Bloom Twp, Fairfield County, OH.I know little of their three female children, Nancy, Lucinda and Mathilda.The youngest married Monroe Hoy, who was born 19 Sep 1857.I don't know his relationship to Abraham Hoy, but it is a good bet there is one.
The father of Mary Feller (1827-1865) was John Frederick Feller, who was born 16 Dec 1779 in Northampton County, PA. He married her mother, Susan Robenolt, born 27 June 1786, in PA, in Fairfield County, OH, on 22 Jul 1805.Frederick died 28 Aug 1857 and Susan died 26 Nov 1852.Both are buried in Betzer Cem'y, Bloom Twp, Fairfield County, OH.
