Hi Geri, just found your note. Have been sidetracked the last couple months. Hubby is going to work from home now, and has taken over the computer and phone lines, between 8am and 6pm. The rest of us just jump in when we can in the evening. I talked to my dad over the holidays and should fill you in on what he said.
Apparently, my Greatgrandfather, John E.Felker, b.26 Mar.1852, married to a woman name Dora or Eva,b.9 Oct.1864 and d.2 Feb.1935, had a farm-possibly in Kansas or Indiana;still not sure on that yet, and 4 children:
s.Charles Everett Felker,(my grandfather)b.26 Jan.1895,place unknown, d.10 Jan.1978 in Santa Paula, Ventura Co., CA.
d.Mary Felker/married a Shafer
d.Edna Felker/married a Parker
and a son, name unknown, that killed himself. Not sure of birth order here, he might have been the oldest and had too much responsibility.
John E. Felker(Ggf)at some point took off and left the family and farm. My grandfather ran the farm until he met my grandmother, Cora Wave Draper, they married and headed west to California, abt.1925. My father was born 4 June,1926 in Culver City, LA Co, CA. My dad said grandpa didn't talk much about his dad, probably didn't know him well, and I would imagine there was a lot of resentment there due to the fact that he up and left the family. I'm quite sure it wasn't easy for a woman to raise a family of four and run a farm in the 1890's.

Mary Felker/Shafer had a daugh.Bernice that married a George Gogle or Cogle, they had a
d.Delores (Aunt Dee-I remember well)mar'd. Hal Severson. My dad says she lives in Hemet, CA now.
So I'm going to start posting in CA to see if I can reach out to some of these relatives too.
You've been so helpful, and any information you find is greatly appreciated.
