Reunion Time

If you can find Henry H. Fellows, and his wife, Belle Lamunion on your family tree, you are invited to the reunion of their descendants. I once wrote about some treasures in Belle’s box. Historically, Belle’s family “got together”, but sometime later the reunion of what was then the Fellows family, was called a Fenton reunion. Two of Henry and Belle’s children married siblings named Fenton.

Henry was born 3 August 1858 in Michigan and died 19 Sept 2005 in Mecosta County, Michigan; Belle was born 15 July 1864 in New York, and died 27 August 1948 in Colfax Township, Wexford County, Michigan. Belle and Henry lived in Newaygo and Wexford Counties, Michigan. Belle later married Charley Tinkler, Belle’s grandchildren called them, “Grandma and Charley”.

We have some photographs of Belle and her siblings from many years ago. Belle was the baby of eight known children born to Rescum/Ruscum Lamunion/Lemunyon 1807-1891 and his wife Marinda Jones, 1821- ca 1872. The Lamunions were among several Lamunion/Lemunyon families who migrated from New York to Michigan. They settled in Allegan County, Michigan. We know about the following children of Rescum/Ruscum and Miranda:

Elizabeth Lamunion 1846-1930, married Franklin Bisard
Mary Ann Lamunion, 1850-1899, married John H. Murray
Merritt Winfield (Scott) Lamunion, 1851-1635, married Emma Adelia Widger
George W. Lamunion 1852-1932, his death record says he was divorced, but I haven’t found marriage
Benjamin F. (Bige or Bije) Lamunion 1856-1892, married Martha Foss
Emily Lamunion 1858-1945 married Andrew Jackson Carter
Olive Josephine Lamunion, 1862-1882, married Wallace Tufts
C. Belle Lamunion as I listed above.
