It's very sad to see the two young Fuller children who died on the same day in 1882. My guess is that they both died of the same cause, maybe some sort of illness.
Enos Sellers, son of Abraham Sellers and Catharine Kulp, was born February 17, 1797 in Franconia, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. He is my 2nd cousin 5x removed.
Jeffrey Allen Gaunt, son of Robert Gaunt and Mary Evelyn Westbrooks, was born February 17, 1957. He is my 6th cousin.
Heather Renee Wright was born February 17, 1975. She is also my 6th cousin, coincidentally through my Gauntt line.
Jill Hunter was born February 17, 1981. She is my 5th cousin 2x removed on my Gauntt line.
Jeremy Leal was born February 17, 1989, possibly in Canada. He is my 4th cousin on my Meckler line.
Victor Claude Palmer and Catherine Johnson Deacon, daughter of Benjamin Deacon and Sarah Fox Johnson, were married on February 17, 1909 in Mount Holly, Burlington County, New Jersey. Catherine is my 2nd cousin 3x removed on my Fox line through the Johnsons.
Shane Freitag, son of Benny Freitag and Dobby Kushner, and Sharon Aizanman were married on February 17, 1985 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Shane is my 4th cousin on my Meckler line through the Kushners.
Peter Sellers, son of Philip Henry Söller and Catharina, died February 17, 1820 at the age of about 83, possibly in Hilltown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He is my 5th great-granduncle.
Elizabeth Schellenberger died February 17, 1845 at the age of about 51, probably in Pennsylvania. She was married to Thomas Sellers, son of Samuel Sellers and Catharine Yost, who is my 1st cousin 5x removed.
Carrie L. Fuller, daughter of James H. Fuller and Lorina G. Tripp, died February 17, 1882 at the age of 5 in Stony Creek, Warren County, New York. She is the 1st cousin 2x removed of my aunt Mary McStroul.
Eddie Fuller, son of James H. Fuller and Lorina G. Tripp, died February 17, 1882 at the age of 4 months in Stony Creek, Warren County, New York. He is also a 1st cousin 2x removed of my aunt Mary McStroul.
Charles F. Gaunt, son of Daniel F. Gaunt and Mary E. Hancock, died February 17, 1935 at the age of 68 in Camden County, New Jersey. He is my 3rd cousin 2x removed.
Charles S. Gaunt, son of Hananiah Selah Gaunt and Margaret S. Scott, died February 17, 1963 at the age of 76. He is my 1st cousin 3x removed.
Esther Wells Moore, daughter of Howard Evans Moore and Edith E. Wells, died February 17, 1998 at the age of 79 in Belle Mead, Somerset County, New Jersey. She is my 1st cousin 2x removed on my Owen line through the Moores.
Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
