Kocher-Burkholder-Haubach-Stottlemyer-Lusk-Ellis-Birchett...

Updated March 23, 2011


I have tried to update my email address on my previous Family Tree Maker page, but have not been able to get to it for some reason.

The AOL address is no longer valid!

MY E-MAIL ADDRESS IS bmklusk@cox.net

I occasionally check my mail at bmklusk@juno.com

In January 2000 I published a 600+ page book about the Kocher-Burkholder-Haubach-Stottlemyer ancestors of my parents and included as many descendants of those that I had been able to find. We moved away from the locale of my printer in March 2004, so with some effort I may still be able to get copies. That will have to be investigated. I originally was charging $55.00, including postage, but may have to research whether and how we can take care of any future orders of that volume. E-mail me if you have an interest in obtaining information about obtaining a copy.

There have been quite a few descendants found since December 1999, so if you want to know whether I have your line, feel free to contact me.

I NOW HAVE OVER 3000 INDIVIDUALS IN THE STOTTLEMYER FAMILY (DESCENDED FROM DAVID STADELMAYER STOTTLEMYER, THE IMMIGRANT WHO SETTLED IN FREDERICK COUNTY, MD)

HOPEFULLY I WILL BE PRINTED AN UPDATED VERSION OF THE STOTTLEMYER FAMIIES DESCENDED FROM DAVID, THE IMMIGRANT, ABOUT JANUARY, 2011. IF YOU HAVE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, NOTES, OR STORIES ON ANY DESCENDANTS I HAVE, OR ADDITIONAL INDIVIDUALS THAT CAN BE CONNECTED AS A STOTTLEMYER DESCENDANT, PLEASE CONTACT ME. bmklusk@cox.net

Thank you. Betty Kocher Lusk, a Stottlemyer Descendant

I have worked to increase the ancestral information for my husband's LUSK, STEPHENS, ELLIS, and BURCHETT/BIRCHETT lines. We currently are stopped at a "brick wall" and hope to make more progress someday. Can anyone help?

My husband's ggrandfather was James Lusk b. c1836-1837 possibly in Coffee County, TN. James with wife Mary and sons, including our grandfather Hiram Lafayette Lusk, are found in the 1860 and 1870 Coffee County, TN censuses. Hiram and family moved to Dexter, Missouri where he lived for many years until his death.

The ELLIS ancestral information is not lengthy. Greene Francis ELLIS was born March 1852 in Tennessee. His death certificate Oct. 1930 indicates his father was Ira ELLIS, b. N. Carolina or Virginia, and his mother was Vivian PARKER, b. N. Carolina. Green Frances was in Arkansas when he was married January 1873. He had a sister living in Arkansas (Susan F. 1848-1913) who married a Birchett brother of Levina Caldonia (Birchett) ELLIS -our grandmother. We have no other specific locations, dates, siblings, ancestors, etc. for Greene Francis (1852-1930) and Ira ELLIS. Can anyone give us a lead?

My husband's BURCHETT/BIRCHETT ancestors - great grandfather is Dennis BURCHETT and grandmother is Levina Caldonia (Birchett) ELLIS - and are found in the 1850 McNairy Co., Tennessee census. The 1870 census finds some of them in Bradshaw Twp., Greene Co., Arkansas and then in 1880 they are in Clay County, Arkansas census. Various spellings are found: BURCHETT, BIRCET, and BIRCHETT, etc. (Grandma) Levina Caldonia Birchett married Greene Francis ELLIS in Clay County, Arkansas, had 13 children, and lived in the country near Piggott, Clay, Arkansas until her death.

I will be happy to hear from anyone who may be connected to these families.
