Help! Who were the Parents of Daniel Livingston Isbell
Posted by: Mari Schmidt (ID *****5448) Date: June 10, 2011 at 23:37:12

Hello! Does anyone here know who the parents of Daniel Livingston Isbell were? I have read through much of the stuff online and other than the first school teacher article on Olive Mann Isbell, I am not finding much information on my branch. Also does anyone know of a relationship to Patty Reed from the Donner Party or if we have any native ancestry in this line? My mother remembers her grandmother telling her we were related to the Donner Party Reeds. If anyone can help it would be appreciated. Thanks...

Here is what I have so far:

Daniel Livingston Isbell...

Had two brothers...James and Dr. Isaac Isbell (who was married to Olive Mann Isbell)

His wife was Elvira Whitten

He had a son named William D. Isbell Born in Missouri and died 10-18-1885.

Looks like his brother James may be buried in the family plot as there is a tombstone for James Loran Isbell Died 11-8-1913 at age 63 yrs.

William D. Isbell...

Married to Jane Valentine

Had a Daughter Named Mary Elaine Isbell Gettins

Mary Elaine Gettins...( She wrote two books...Zig Zag Tales was under glass in Sacramento)

Married Floyd Frank Gettins

Had a Daughter named Alice who is my grandmother
