About: 63 year old genealogist for most of the surnames listed. Sometimes the only researcher. I call myself more of a compiler at times, taking what my relatives give and but it in some sense of direction for the rest of the family members.

Researching: Mitchell, Bolling, Wilcox, Singleton, Ivey, Mckay, Fielder, Sturgeon, Honts, Brazzle, Couzins

(Interesting story--James Albert Singleton (Rachel & William's son) married Rhoda Bell Brazzle, daughter of Joshua Brazzle Jr.(Rachel's third husband) and Rachel Gano. When Rachel (Fielder) Singleton Dodson, married Joshua, that not only made Rachel Rhoda's mother-in-law but also her step-mother).

Mark Fielder and Rebecca Ellen Honts were married 14 Jul 1865 in Knox Co., IL. Mark 11 Oct 1843 - abt. 1916 was born the son of Charles Fielder and Mary Rachel McKay in Indian Point Township, Knox Co., IL.

Mark and Rebecca had nine children--Henry Edgar, Minnie Bell "Bell", John William (also know as William John and A.W.), Jennie Leoti "Maude", Harry Bernard, Frederick Martin, George Washington, Louis Clyde "Clyde" and Guy Pearl (Sr.). The date on Rebecca's tombstone is wrong--it says 1918. An obituary for her in the Washington County Genealogical Society give the date 5 Jul 1921, and she is on the 1920 Federal Census for Wahsington Co., KS. No date other than 1916 is on Mark's tombstone.
