JONES, PACKER, PROUDFOOT, PURRITTEN, TURRITTEN, TURRITTIN posted by Pamela P Reinhart on Saturday, October 4, 1997

My PROUDFOOT ancestors went from Seneca to Wood to Fulton and Lucas Counties, and some to Michigan. The surnames I am searching for in Fulton and Lucas are: PROUDFOOT, TURRITTIN (or variations TURRITTEN / PURRITTEN), and JONES and PACKER. The first two names are not very common, so if you find any reference I feel confident they are relatives. For JONES, I am specifically looking for Jay E and Ida May, or their children Roscoe Leroy and Marcella Leona. I know that Marcella Leona married Clarence Levi PACKER. Specifically, looking for, PROUDFOOT (1850-1920), TURRITTEN (and variations- 1870 and later), Ephrium Jenkins (1880 and later), Jay E. Jones (1900 and later), and Clarence Levi Packer (1920).

Looking for any information on John REYNOLDS, his wife Rachel, and their children Roswell REYNOLDS and Ruth REYNOLDS BROWN. According to "Some Pioneers of Fulton County", "John REYNOLDS and his wife Rachel must have died somewhere near the Johnson Cemetery. His grave should be found and marked, as a soldier in the Revolution." I am particularly interested in the burial/gravesite information on John and Rachel REYNOLDS. Has this gravesite ever been located?
