I have been researching the Finnell/Jewell line from the Hutchison, KS area for some time now and am just about finished with that end.
My grandfather was Allen L. Finnell, he was born in Arlington, KS, in 1893just south of Hutchinson.He met and married Carrie Etta Jewell, who was born in Hutchinson, KS in 1895.They had 4 children, Marie, George (my father), Wilfred, and Mildred.His father was Thomas Jefferson Finnell, his mother was Sarah Jane Unknown.My Great Great Grandfather & mother are Absalom Graves and Nancy Jane Johnson Finnell.They came from Kentucky.
I'm also researching the Jewell line from the Hutchinson, KS area.I am descendent from Reuben Tanner Jewell who came from Virginia.I'm currently trying to find Iva Mae Casey who married one of his grandsons John Jewell.She moved back to the Hutchinson area and remarried but at present, I don't know who, when or where.
Anyone with information on these two lines can contact me at
my E-mail address or send me a letter by snail mail I would sure appreciate it and I would reciprocate by gladly sharing what info I have on these lines.
