I am so excited about finding a branch leading to my g.grandmother's side of the family. All I have are approx. dates of birth
for the children: Elysa, Elizabeth J. b.1831
Mary C. 1835, Therom E. 1835, Andrew J. 1840
Christina 1842, Margaret 1844 and my g.grandmotger Sara Jane b.4/24/1847 Lyerla, GA (m.) 12/20/1869 in Chattoogo Co.GA to William Benjamin Huie.
After reading some of the messages, I
assume the name Mosteller is German. Have you by chance found a Jewish connection to this name. The name is similiar to a town in
Spain. Our family has passed down a story that Sara Jane was from Holland. When the Jews where kicked out of Spain in the late 1400's some went to Holland and changed their names. As you can tell, we are stabbing in the dark here.
I would really like to know more about this family if you wouldn't mind. Also, if I can
supply you with any more info from Sara Jane
on, please let me know. You can reach me at
Thank you very much for getting back to me so
fast. Linda
