Ruth Estella Voshell's notes written in the early 1970 (dau of William Smith
Letter June 15,1970 probably to Rosalin Voshell author of the John Wesley Voshell "Green Book" Kansas and great niece.

Augustine and Peter came first to New York
Three brothers settled in West Dover.
William and James and Daniel.
William's children were six�" [she goes on to relate this line in detail]
"I went to Dover and looked up some of this record."
In another note unsigned, it appears to be written in the same handwriting. Random notes on the early Voshells:
"Landed on Eastern Shore of VA MD. Second descended from followers of Wm. Penn. Huguenot Naudaines-Bayards, Jaquetts and Greenwells from France-hones upon the Hudson to escape war.
Alsace part of Lorain-on the west and part of Menty pleasant part of German Empire. Reformed faith-John Calvin was driven from County went to Geneva. These refuges were called Huguenots, wandered down the Rhine and went to Netherlands. Huguenots settled in Ulster County.

Obadiah had the following:
Then an arrow in drawn from the first Obediah to a second :
"Obediah's wife Hannah" and three names listed under
"2 James Voshell had the following:
Obediah married Ruth Kersey [ it is more likely that this is not accurate. The Obediah linked to Ruth Kersey is Obediah
There is another arrow from the first John under the first Obediah down to:
"John was a Miller interested in peach culture and married Mary Todd." [This maybe just a researcher's connection at the Dover facility visited since the John who married Mary Todd Hubbard is a son of Daniel one of the 3 brothers]
Then there is a lists of first name and different variations of spelling Voshell.
