Fentzel of Pennsylvania

Journal by Tonyaredwing

I am looking for information on Mathew Fentzel of Pennsylvania. He is my grandpa on my mothers side. From records it shows he married a woman by the name of Cora S. Jones. From stories told I thought her name was Alma. They had three children Wilma, Marie, and James. James was hit by a car when he was ten years old. Cora or Alma was killed on a harley she was the passenger. After that her husband put his two daughters Marie and Wilma in a home, then remarried a woman with five children. Any information on Alma or Mathew or their family would be really appreciated. Cora or Alma had two brothers Ralph and Niven. My mother Wilma P. Gibson born in 1928 married Patrick C. Gibson in 1944 lived in Missouri with nine children. Please help I can't find any information. .

Dear TonyaRedwing, Hi there. Can you please edit this journal to change the surname part to be JONES, FENTZEL instead of Cora or Alma Jones Mathew Fentzel. That way surnames will become clickable links back to the surname wiki pages and other researchers, their journals and any links on those surnames.

I think if you goto your local Family History Centre you can lookup this record on their microfiche.


I did a search of the USA Death Master File but didn't find a record for your Mathew FENTZEL.

United States SSA Death Master File



If I were you, a tip I could suggest is to create your own family tree at say tribalpages ... it is FREE, and perhaps you may be contacted by descendants and/or other family historians who may have the very information you seek.


Also check out the following website, it is the most powerful genealogical search engine that I know of. Click on a country, type in the surname you are seeking, then press search. Don't get a fright because 12 window boxes will open up on your computer with heaps of information for you to sift through. Some may or may not be relevant to your search.
