My mother told us children the story of two brothers, our ancestors, who emigrated from the Palatinate area, and were well-to-do silk farmers. Does anyone have a similar story in your family?

I believe I am descended from Old Henry Feezell (Feazell) through his son Bayliss (Bayless).

Any information would be appreciated.

I have traced my Feazell line back to Philip M Feazell (the immigrant) who came here in the 1730's. The original name was spelled Feisel or Fiesel. The spelling was changed when he moved his family to Virginia after the Revolution. He boarded the ship in Rotterdam, Holland. I was told he may have come from the Palatinate area. He must have been educated because he signed his name on the ship's manifest of passengers.

Hello, Wayne

I have wondered if my ancestor, commonly called "Old Henry"
Feezell (Feazell is the spelling on his tombstone) may have the wrong spelling of Feezell. This spelling came through his son Bayless, and has continued to today. Several of us have searched much but cannot find where "Old Henry" came from. There are speculations that it was Virginia or Pennsylvania. I am wondering if it might be Virginia. Would you share your genealogy line? "Old Henry" was born Nov. 1, 1781 and died Feb. 8, 1860 in TN according to his tombstone which was found in Ealy Cemetery in Greene County, TN. We would be so happy to make some connection to somebody.

I talked to a young lady from VA whose name spelling is Feazell who told me that she thought there was a similar story in her family of two brothers who came to America from the Palatinate area, but try as some might, they can make no connection between the two families, even though researcher Kathy Harms felt there probably was a connection.
I am Kathy's sister, and since she has died, would love to help solve this puzzle. Any help you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much

Freda

Hi

I wonder if you would send me the list of Philip M. Feazel's children, etc. I am finding confusing information online. If you are a direct descendant, I would appreciate this information. Thanks much,

At one time I found on the internet:
"This Michael Feasel SR who settled in Frederick (later Shenandoah) Co. VA in 1755 is believed by many to be the Michael Vuisel (Feisel) who appears on the passenger list of the ship Phoenix on its voyage from Rotterdam to Philadelphia in 1749, some 11 years after the earliest Feazel (Philip Martin) arrived on the ship St Andrew in 1738 which took the same route.

This early Feisel immigrant was a true pioneer in every sense of the word, leaving his Palatinate homeland as a young man, traveling up the Rhine to board an English ship in Rotterdam with brother Sebastion to make passage to an exciting new world free of wars that had plagued his homeland for over 100 years."
Also "HENRY FEAZEL Born about 1775 VA Son of Michael and Elizabeth, Married Susannah Hauser. I hope this helps.

I know nothing of the Feazel line, but regarding "HENRY FEAZEL Born about 1775 VA Son of Michael and Elizabeth, Married Susannah Hauser". I believe this Susannah was Susannah Homrighausen/Humrichouser/Houser.I have her ancestry through Germany. One of her brothers, Jacob, moved to Miami County, Indiana and spelled it Humrickhouse. Her other brothers settled around Fairfield County, Ohio, and turned the first H. into a middle initial so many of their records are ___ H.Houser.
