Autobiography of Marsha Berry

6 March 2005

 

My closest genealogy is my husband George, and our daughter

Camille and our favorite son-in-law Gabriel Jaque and our 4

grandsons: Alexander, Adrian, and twins Denver and Hunter.

 

I began researching my genealogy in the summer of 1962. 

 

My father had a book that is now in my possession about our

family that cousin Cora Champ Munns compiled and published

on 1 May 1932, "Family Record," which has Genevieve Funk

being the daughter of Franklin Pierce Funk and Ida Belle Bobbitt.

 

My Philson cousin Mae Daws Behrendit compiled and included the

Cora Champ Munns book: "Family Record," and Lynn W. Philson

book: "Our Ancestors," published in 1978.  In December 1999 Mae

published her book: "The Ancestors and Family of the Philson's,"

of which I had assisted Mae in the process and was among the

cousins that contibuted, a book which has Genevieve Funk being

the daughter of Franklin Pierce Funk and Ida Belle Bobbitt.

 

With the combined research and work of Barbara Curley,

George W. Stevens, Joyce Maxwell, Donna Adamson and

Marsha Berry, in June 2000 we published the book: "John Crabb

chr 1450 Callington, Cornwall, England and His Descendants,"

which descends to each of us [Marsha's mother's side] and other

cousins.
