Relatively recent news and views about Axtell family history.
Numan Axtell Line Linked!
Larry Axtell in Utah spent most of a day in October 1995 at the Latter-Day-Saints Family History
Library in Salt Lake City and managed to find the father of "Numan" Axtell (his great
grandfather). The 1945 Genealogy
listed him as a separate lineage with "ancestors unknown." From the 1850 Census of Hamilton Twp.,
Lee County, IL, he found that Newman Axtell (correct spelling) is the son of Lewis Axtell (#8-61).
It took perseverance, "some help from the volunteers there, and a little luck." Great sleuthing!
