Delashmutt Cousins

Since the thread was posted in Oct. of 2009- I have done research off and on about the Family. I have learned so much. I own a copy of Renee Delashmutts Book and I am very happy to have that. In 2009 I met a Delashmutt Cousin from Whiting on Ancestry and now I have met another Delashmutt Cousin from WI. Our direct ancestors were brothers.... Next month I am going to get to meet both of these ladies and I am excited. My husband comes from John K. Delashmutt who went west on the Oregon Trail. It seems that the Delashmutts in Oregon have been a bit forgotten when you read about Delashmutt connections. I would appreciate anyone reading this that is a Delashmutt from the West to get in touch with me... Thanks so much.

Hi Carol,

I am also a direct descendant of John K. and Phoebe Creswell Bennett DeLashmutt. They were my GG-Grandparents. I descend from their son, Douglas DeLashmutt, who married Amanda E. (Ellen) Chrisman. I am curious how your husband descends from John K. Feel free to contact me and I will share whatever information I can give you.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello Lynn,
Thank you for posting back to me. John K. was my husband's GG grandfather also. John K's and his first wife Amanda had a daughter Sarah Elizabeth- she married John William Angell and they became my husband's great grandparents. They had a daughter Amanda Serena and she was my husband's grandmother. Amanda S. married Walter West Markham. Sarah Delashmutt Angell's husband was from Walla Walla, WA- so that is where this branch of the Delashmutt-Angell- Markhams were from.

Do you know Greg Bennett? He is related through Phoebe Bennett's first husband Thomas. He has done a lot of research on the Bennett and Delashmutt lines..

I saw from your previous posts in 1999- that you live in Kent, WA. We live in WA also- Would love to meet another Delashmutt Cousin.

Hi Carol, It was nice to hear from you. It was also interesting to hear how your family is related to the DeLashmutt line. You mentioned that his DeLashmutt's lived in Walla Walla, WA. Doing some research on another line in Pendleton, OR, I ran across some DeLashmutt's that lived there. Would they happen to be related to your DeLashmutt's in Walla Walla? The two towns are not that far apart, so it makes me wonder.

Yes, I have corresponded with Greg Bennett. It has been interesting to find that there are some descendants of the DeLashmutt's living in the Northwest, and how we are all related. I have also corresponded several times with Rod Bach. Do you know him? He has been quite helpful in my research over the years.

We are still living in Kent, WA. Where in WA do you live? It would be fun to get together and share information some time.

Hope to hear from you again.
