JEANNIE, Thank You for caring/sharing.
Is it a free online newsletter? I might bookmark.

I was on the HATFIELD Prodigy group for several years and also did lookups for
them.
AND have MANY sources of records

I am Not an active member now and probably won't be.
We have a small CLAIBORNE CO, TN  (LEE CO, VA ) to DECATUR CO, IA group which
would be an OLDER family connects to Pike Co, KY that several seem to be
interested.

WHO do you connect to? Did they come to DECATUR CO, IA. ?
Then I might be interested and any help I could give, fine.

MY RALPH HATFIELD of CLAIBORNE CO, TN would be a distant cousin of OLD REUBEN
HATFIELD that came ca 1838? from CAMPBELL/KNOX? CO, TN (memory)

THANKS for sharing
marie, iowa

Tom, Marie, and list!
My husband is from a large line of Stubbs in Decator Co, IA.
There are many with the name Wion married into this line.

<<Wish I knew! My records show that my grandmother Nancy
Wion born 3/11/78 was
child of John William Wion (born abt 1850, died 1923) and
Elizabeth Osborn (died
12/7/83). My grandmother is only daughter I know of (tho my
sister remembers
visits in Milo, Iowa from sisters and brother (John, I
believe) of Nancy.
Charles Anderson Craft (3/25/70 - 7/9/58) was son of George
Washington Craft
(abt 1842 - abt 1923) and Hannah Burnett. George was son of
Anderson Craft (abt
1800 in N.C. - before 1880) and Catherine King. They were
married 2/17/1826 in
Green Co. Tn..
Siblings of George were James, Henry, Jane, John and
William. Tom>>



John Wion m Nancy Sines in OH and were the parents of John
William Wion m Elizabeth Osborn both died Decatur Co, IA,
and I have these children listed and 2 different wives for
him-first being Elizabeth second Melvina Cook. But this is
Robert Stubbs information and he would be the best to answer
questions on this as he has worked with this much longer
than I have, and there are a many in this file with the
Wion. He can be reached at this email address

Tom,
I remember several visits to Aunt Nancy Craft's in Milo also.   My grandmother
Myrtle Olive Wion Wills was Nancy's half sister.  I remember the large pump organ in
the front parlor.   She was very patient when I managed to make some noise on it.
