Hi Ila, This is Brenda Joeleen Mason. You gave credit for information about the Kessinger lines. We appreciate all that you have done in helping us too.

Just a note, when you Mentioned my name it was noted that I was from South Dakota. I live in Missouri. Rhonda Stucker, my 1st cousin is the one who lives in South Dakota.

My Kessinger line also starts out like most with Andreas Kessinger, Solomon Kessinger I, Solomon Kessinger II, Solomon III, He did marry his first wife, Rebecca Fenwick, after her death Solomon Kessinger III went on and Married Elizabeth F. Tharp. I believe she was in the 1870 census as his wife, and along with them was listed one of her sisters.

When Solomon Kessinger III married Elizabeth Tharp- they had at least three children born to them. Robert Lively, Cora Belle and my Great, Great, Grandmother Annie Belle Kessinger.

Annie Belle Kessinger born approx 1882 or 1883, died 1965. She married first husband William C Wood, born 1881 and died in 1923, Her 2nd marriage was to Thomas Comer- found in the 1930 Census of Louisville, Jefferson county, KY.

Rhonda and I still are waiting to find out for sure who William C Wood's parents were, if any one out there knows please let us know. He went by Billie Wood, buried in Hart county, KY.

Annie Belle Kessinger and William Wood were the parents of my Great Grandmother Ella D Wood. Ella married Samuel Jones Bybee. They had about 13 children- one which was/is my Maternal Grandmother Laura Bernice Bybee. Laura married Max E Stone (actually born a CHASE). Laura and Max had three daughters. Ella Louise, Gloria Jean, My Mother, and Linda Marie. They all went by Last name Stone-but he just used his stepfather's last name so long that is what he married as, used in the Military, and Died with but the surname is CHASE.

My Mother, Gloria Jean Stone {CHASE} married Delmar Ilif Williams, they had two daughters, Balinda Jo Williams 1961, and Brenda Joeleen Williams 1958. They divorced and remarried others and had children with the other spouses.

Brenda Joeleen Williams (Me) married Robert Charles Mason JR, both Military (Army Vets) have three children.

Karl Robert Mason, Malissa Jean Mason, and Patricia Adele Mason, Our Daughter Malissa gave us a Blessing-her son, Ryan Charles Mason (Peters) 18 months today. This is the end of our line so far. My sister Balinda Jo Williams, married twice, she has 6 children, and 5 grand children that I know of.

just a long note, thanks again for your part in the Kessinger lines.
