Benjamin Tunnell married Eugenia Taiclet Bell in 1891, lived in Ray co. Mo, Do you know anything about them or the family? I think I saw where she died in 1896. Help! and Thanks.

Hello Valerie,

I searched through my database and I don't have a Benjamin Tunnell anywhere. I'll certainly let you know if I ever find out anything about him and/or his wife. Wilma Brown is a Tunnell researcher who has a lot of information. I haven't heard from her and a long time, but you can search for her on the GenForum Tunnell board. She just might know about your Benjamin.

I'm glad you contacted me ... we just might be cousins.

aloha,
Saundra

I am especially interested in the relationship between these two brothers...their wives were sisters. I have never been able to find out who their parents were. This is one of my "brick walls". I would appreciate any information concerning these Clark sisters.

Thanks,
Liz

Hello, I am Kyle Collins. I found the following information:
ii.THEODORE ADOLPHUS TUNNELL, b. 26 October 1844, Alabama; d. 30 April 1892, Comanche , Texas; m. (1) TIRZA AMANDA STEWART, 16 February 1869, Comanche , Texas; d. 19 April 1873, Comanche , Texas; m. (2) AMANDA TATE, 9 May 1878, Comanche , Texas; m. (3) EVA MOTTWILER, 23 October 1881, Comanche , Texas. Eva Mottwiler is a relative on mine. I would like to know what happened to Eva. I was in Comanche, TX, and found out that THEODORE ADOLPHUS TUNNELL in buried in a cemetary with a marked grave outside of Comanche. I think it is Indian Creek Cemetary. I have the information but not with me. Anyway, Eva was about 10 years younger than
Theodore. I would like any information about her.
Thank you, Kyle Collins
