Re: O.C and R.C. Unsell in 1880,Tx.
I just received an email with the following information, so I haven't been able to check dates and such:
Jessie? Lula Mae Unsell (my maternal grandmother) was born 4/1/1892 in Archer City, TX. In addition to George Burtrand Crisp she was married to Johnny Lee (1st husband) on 3/29/1908. George Burtrand Crisp is my grandfather, her second marriage, not sure of their marriage date. Lula died sometime in 1925 in Ada, OK when my mother was about 10 months old. Mother (Violet Ann Crisp Graham Heath) was raised by her grandparents until she was about 7 years old when her grandmother died. One of her half-sisters (Beulah Lee Chapman), raised her after that.
Mother's grandparents and Lula's parents were William Lonzo David Unsell and Ruth Ann Curtis. William Lonzo David was born 11/28/1865 in Blandville, Ballard Co, KY and died 12/29/1960 in Ada, OK. He is buried in Rosedale Cemetery. He married Ruth Ann on 12/30/1883 in Bellevue, TX. Ruth Ann Curtis' parents were John Curtis and Phoebe Brown.
William Lonzo David's parents were Oliver Cromwell Unsell and Rachel Catherine Stovall (whom your question is about). Oliver was born 3/1834 in Blandville, Ballard Co, KY and died 1908 in Cache Commanche, OK. He and Rachel were married 5/10/1861 in Ballard Co, KY. Oliver's grandmother was also named Stovall, maybe he and Rachel were cousins? (see below)
Oliver's parents were David Unsell and Elizabeth B. (?). David was a farmer in Ballard Co, KY. He was born 1805 in Ballard Co, KY. I don't know anything about Elizabeth other than she was born around 1808 in VA.
David Unsell's parents were Abraham Unsell and Anna Stovall. Abraham was born 1766 and died 1819. He and Anna married 11/7/1793 in Nelson Co, KY. Anna Stovall was d/o John Stovall.
Abraham's parents were George Frederick Unsell and Esther Miller, d/o Conrad and Hannah Miller. George was born 8/6/1737 and died after 1818.
George Frederick's parents were Georg Friederich Unseldt and Anna Maria Hoffman. Georg Sr was born in 1709 in Ulm, Germany.He was a weaver. He died around 1755/1756 (the time that his will was probated in Frederick Co, MD). He and Anna married4/2/1734 in Frederick Co, MD.
How are you related to Oliver Cromwell and Rachel Catherine?
Hope this helps,
