I am looking for information on the STEPHAN and PANCHIN families of Tyonek, AK. My grandmother Doris PANCHIN b. 1921-1922 was married 1st to Jacob (?) STEPHAN about 1937-38 and had a daughter. The child died young?? I do not know if Doris was then divorced or widowed. I want to know where the baby (maybe named Elizabeth) is buried. Doris Panchin (Panchine) and her sisters were orphaned. I am looking also for where her parents Paul P. and Kate S. Panchin are buried at Tyonek.

1930 Ankorage, AK, 3rd dist, Chitina, Dist 13
Panchin, Paul P. 28 fisherman, salmon cannery Aleut
Panchin, Kate S. 26 wife
Panchin, Doris 8 daughter
Panchin, Mildred 4 daughter
Panchin, Jenny under 1 year daughter
(Also listed as Athabascan in other records)

1935 BIA Tyonek, AK
Stephan, Elia 68 Fisherman Full Indian
Stephan, Natalie 55 Wife Full Indian
Stephan, Jacob 27 son
Stephan, Steve 35 son

1938 BIA Tyonek, AK

Panchine, Mildred 12 (listed as destitute orphan) Full Native
Panchine, Jennie 10 (listed as destitute orphan) Full Native

**These 3 girls are Doris' sisters. Margaret also dies young. Only Mildred and Jenny live to adulthood. Where is Margaret buried? Where are their parents buried? Doris said that when sister Jennie died she buried her with her parents. Was that in Tyonek?

Doris Panchin Stephan married Darrell KOCH after 1938 and lived near Homer, AK. They are thought to have had a son that was given out for adoption. My mother would really like to find her half brother. I am having a horrible time trying to get vital records on my grandmother Doris and grandfather Darrell Koch. I am hoping someone can fill in the missing information.

Did you find out any more information regarding this?.... I do not speak to my mother anymore, and I am curious as to where my mothers side of the family comes from. My grandmonthers maiden name was Margaret Panchin(e) and died about the age of 63/64 I was a bit young to remember the exact dates etc. I am a memeber of the Village of Tyonek but I have only been there once for her funeral. But I know very little of my mothers side of the family and I am just at the begining of my search. The information in your paragraph does have about the age my grandmother would have been at that time so I thought I'd give it a shot if I responded!

So glad to hear from you! I believe that your Margaret is indeed a sister to my Doris Panchin KOCH. Here is a listing of her with two of her sisters shortly after the death of their parents. My Doris is married to a Jacob STEPHAN. I have all of Doris' letters to my mom and I think she mentioned Margaret a number of times. I would love to trade information with you.

Hi Cheryl, nice to meet you. I would be happy to share any family info I have with you. Please feel free to contact me directly at Deborah-Slager at comcast.net

I would love to get pictures of your grandmother and will share those I have of Doris. Doris was living with a sister in Oregon when she died. I wonder if it was your grandmother?

Hi Whitney, very happy to meet you! I just today received contact with Jenny's granddaughter too. I can be contacted directly at Deborah-Slager (at sign) comcast.net

I will share what I have on Doris and her sisters. I am so excited to finally make contact with the rest of you. As a member of Tyonek maybe you can help me with clan family.

I teach native american beading and do pow-wows. I would very much like to make an outfit in honor of Doris and want to use her clan symbol if I can find out what it is. It should be the same as yours as it is passed down through the female line.
