Re: Fellers Henderlite
My notes indicate that Mildred Mayetta Fellers married Ava W Schoefpel. They had two children - a son whose name I do not have and and daughter Barbara. Mildred died in August 1967 in Chester, Randolph County, Illinois.
Daughter Barbara married Charles David Payton and they had four children - three sons and a daughter. Below is the obituary for her son George that may help you contact other members of the family.
