I'd like some Festervan info. My ancester is Martha Ann Festervan who married William W. Martin and later Isaac Beasley. Her parents were John W. Festervan and Nancy Wills. I know they were married in Madison Co, Miss. in 1836 and he's listed in the censuses there in 1840, 1841 and 1845. I have him born in 1798 and died in 1860. They're buried in Union Springs Cemetery near Shongaloo,LA.
What I'm looking for is immigration and parentage info for John. I have that he's from Holland. Someone's tree site shows him with a parent with the first initial "U" and a birthdate of 1774, but I don't know if that's accurate. Any clues about his immigration and parentage?
Also, do you have Nancy Wills' parents?
Stories would be great, too.
