In our family there has been told a story about two brothers who emigrated to America from the Palatinate area who were silk farmers, and from whom we are descended. Does anyone have a similar story in your family?

I believe I am descended from Old Henry Feezell through his son Bayless (Bayliss). Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sebastian Feazel is the brother of Michael, not Phillip Marting Feazel. Phillip Martin Feazel is of no apparent relation to these two. There are numerous documents that state this fact clearly.

I have not heard of any such stories. Our family was kept pretty much a secret by my grandmother, who wanted to disassociate herself from her parents in the 1950's. I only found out about our family history by accient. I was looking up the voting record of my great grandfather, William Crosson Feazel, while he was a member of the US Senate. A professional genalogist performed research on my family for the Louisiana History Museum, and for Lincoln Parish.

I hired an organizaiton in Salt Lake City to research the Anderson side of the family, from which even less was known. I have had a DNA study done by FamilyTreeDNA.com. I had this test done so long ago, that there were few actual matches. Since more people have joined, I hear of more and more matches.

Sorry I have no stories for you. I find it odd and interesting that there were silk farmers in Palatine (Germany). Shows you what I know.

Jake, Do you know of any of the persons who use these spellings Feazell, Feezell, Feasel, Feazel, Feasle, Feazle have participated in a Y-DNA test? There are numerous persons who claim to be descendants of the above, but none seem to have participated in a Y-DNA test done by FamilyTreeDNA.com.

I learned early on that paper trails are not always proof of blood kin, but those trails are helpful to place persons in particular places at a particular time.

Your response will be most appreciated.

Jake, there is a wealth of information available on both the Feazel(l) line and your Anderson line, AND the Turbeville line. The early Feazle immigrants did not come from Palatine Germany, but from the Palatinate region of what is now Germany "leaving Rotterdam, but last from Cowes", arriving in 1738 & 1749. You should already have all of this but if you don't let me know.
