My nephew has a bible he bought at an antiques store several years ago, and I really looked at it for the first time this weekend. It seems to have been owned by one branch of the Felker family in Walton County, and goes back to the early 1800's. Here's a listing of some of the names, starting from the earliest listed: John, Martha, Sarah Jane, W.A., Lucinda B., Mary Ellen, John P. Charles Walton (b. 1858), James Monroe, Frances Colby, Robt. Stephen, Martha Louise, and William Park.
Are these from a your branch of the Felkers? If not, can you point me in their direction? I'd love to find the original family. Thanks.

Yes, that is my family. I have written extensively about that branch of the family even though it is not my direct line. John Felker b.1818 TN & lived in Monroe, GA was my G-g-grandfather's nephew. I would be very interested in obtaining the Bible, or at least a photocopy of the relevant pages. Thanks for saving this Bible! Let me know of the cost.

I have just recently begun my search on Ancestry.com.
My mother's father was Jesse H. Felker, born 1880. I know that he left Ringgold, GA, and headed to California, where he met and married my grandmother, but I do not know if he was BORN in Ringgold.
I have not yet been able to track his parents' names.
Does Jesse show up in any of your records?
Thanks,
Maggie Truelove

He was born in Ringold, Catoosa Co., Georgia on 22 Aug 1883. He was the son of Georgia A. Felker & Elizabeth Catherine Collins. I have a good bit of information. I can give your more info.

Thank you for such a quick reply!
I got a different date and year for his birth from other records, January 23, 1880, But the location is correct.
Did you mean George, instead of Georgia? I am guessing so.
Yes, please share any other info you might have! I am thrilled! Did he have siblings?

Hi. I have a GrGr grandfather name Jesse Felker (b.VT) and acquired a lot of information that doesn't belong to him. Maybe this is your Jesse:
from California Death Index: Jesse H. FELKER, sp:M, age:49y, co:70(Los Angeles), dod:5/23/33, state file#27827.
from 1930 CA census: Jesse H. Felker, in Soledad, Los Angeles Co, CA, line 53, taken Apr.10th, head of household, rents, 69yr, Div, b.GA, fa.b.GA, mo.b.NY, Farmer, farm#12, Veteran/Spanish War.
Hope this info is of some help.
