Hello Elizabeth, After I posted my message I then read yours and saw our connection. It looks like our Great Grandfathers were brothers.
John Page Otwell had 16 children. Your Wesley Fletcher Otwell b1875 was a brother of John Bruner (J.B.) Otwell born 11-16-1889. J.B. was married to Ethel Higginbotham born-08-29-1897. They lived in Cale, Arkansas (about 20 miles or so from Presscott, AK) they had 7 children: 1. Pascal Glen Otwell born 08-14-1916 married to Ruth Ratcliff born 06-23-1925 2. Novis Otwell born 07-14-1919 3. J.C. Otwell (my grandfather) 01-28-1922 4. James Otwell born 08-14-1925 5. Elve Page Otwell born 06-23-1928 6. Myrtice Maud Otwell born 07-12-1932 7.

At some point they moved to Texarkana, Texas and six of them still live there. Pascal is deceased. My grandfather J.C. married Christine Jones and they had 3 children. Randy Otwell b1946, Gary J. Otwell 05-10-1947 and Toni (Larey) Otwell. My uncle Randy died in his teens and my aunt Toni lives in Texarkana, Arkansas. She has 2 children and a husband. My dad Gary and my mom Millie now live in Nashville, TN, as do I with my family. My sister lives in San Antonio, TX.
I spoke to my grandfather J.C. tonight and he is going to send me lots more info soon. This is just what he was able to tell me without digging. I will send more info as it becomes available. I would be interested in knowing anything else that you may have found out also. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
