Enjoyed what I have seen so far. Couldn't find any connections.

My great Grandfather is as far back as I can go. His name was Anthony John Huxtable, born in Devonshire in 1829. Had 11 children one of whom was my granfather (James Leslie Huxtable) Born 12 Sep 1871, in Mineral Point Wi. Had 4 children one being my father (Spencer Huxtable) born 7 Oct 1897 in Mineral Point. Probably not much help . But maybe it can be of some use.

Subj: Searching VIVIAN, HUXTABEL, FENLEY, CARLIN of Wisconsin, USA

Searching the VIVIAN's of Mineral Point, Iowa County, Wisconsin, USA. I have some info on four familys that came from Cornwall, England. Below is just a small branch of one of the trees, my tree. I have Luella VIVIAN's family back several generations to the miners who came from Cornwall, England. She was my Mother's aunt.

Luella VIVIAN (1871-1936) of Mineral Point married a HUXTABLE about 1895 and had 4 children:

Russel 1895-1966, died in Chicago, IL.
Spencer 1898-1954.
Verda Arminta, 1899-?, married J H FENLEY, see below.
Gladys 1901?-?, married Robert ROGERS.

Verda Arminta HUXTABLE married James Halvor FENLEY in 1921.

They had 6 children:

James Andrew 1922-45.
Margaret Jane 1923-?, married John Micheal jr. CARLIN in
1943 and had 4 children.
Kenneth Lloyd, 1925-?.
Robert Vivian, 1927-?.
Verda Maria, 1932-?.
Dale Lee, 1934-?, married Janet Lee EDGE.

The above records are very skimpy. While I have many dates, I do not have places to match. I assume these families have lived in the Southern Wisconsin area, but except for Luella, I don't know for sure.

Desire more info on my ancestors and relatives. Any help would be appreciated including help locating info online.

Hello (Hej in Denmark) Peter and Dick,

I'm an American living in Denmark. I am related by marriage to your Huxtable family thru Luella Vivian, the wife of James Leslie Huxtable. I have her ancestors back to Camborne, Cornwall, England and to about 1755.

I wish to make my Vivian family tree more bushy. So any info on Vivians from Mineral Point area may be helpful and will be greatly appreciated. Also I need info on how to better find family info of my Wisconsin ancestors, both Vivians and Sindbergs. It is difficult from Denmark.

Thanks to you, Peter for sending me that email,
