Just discovered that a long lost family left Philadelphia, PA and resettled in Chico in 1876.
Mother Anna Diviney Ferris(a civil war widow of Levi Ferris) may have married James Knox Cox in Chico. Her daughter Margaret Jane married Willam Boness and had 12 children: William, Mary Ellen, Annie Laurie, Thomas George, Frank, Amos Edward, Reba Rebecca, Ada, Frederic, Jay Jesse, Jessie Magnolia, and Margaret Josephine. Daughter Martha Ann Barclay was a widow with two children: David and Mary Ann when she arrived in Chico. She then married William Amos Twitchell. Their children were: Eleazer Levi, Alfred Alfonso, Eddie, and Oliver Francis. Daughter Laura Catherine married Christian Kunz and they had children: Christian and Jacob. She was widowed and then married Augustus Hickethier. They moved to Drain Oregon and they had 8 children: Mamie, Leo, Ora, Virgil, Ruby, Rufus, Hazel and Hubert. Son John Randolph Ferris was married to Minnie Thompson and they had a daughter Eva. They divorced. Eva is known by 1930 and 1940 to be Eva Brown. It is not known if Eva had any children.
I would like to connect to any descendents of the above-mentioned folks and can share significant Ferris genealogy from PA anad DE.
