This section presents the descendants and ancestors of the webmaster, Dick Estel; naturally, my sister Linda shares the ancestors equally.

As I became a father, and later a grandfather and great grandfather, I enjoyed seeing the interaction between my children and grandchildren and their great grandparents. My only in-person meeting with my great grandparents was when I was 18 months old, and I have no memory of it. My interest in genealogy may be an attempt to get to know them and their own grandparents back into the past.

Credit for most of the research for my genealogical files goes to my mother, Hazel Mason Estel. She's the one who wrote letters (on a typewriter), visited cemeteries and court houses to take notes (by hand), and wrote it all down (in longhand) before computers were common. She was often accompanied by her sister, Lnora Mason Drefke. My own research has consisted of a few forays into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints files, looking through the CD files that came with my genealogy program, Family Tree Maker, and collecting information from relatives in Ohio on a trip in 2002..

I am also indebted to a number of distant relatives who have shared their research, both on paper and via Email, and steered me toward links to other genealogy pages.

An excellent source of information on Fulton County pioneer families is the Fulton County OH GenWeb site.


What's Here

A "quick and dirty" pedigree back to my great grandparents appears below to help identify who's who. More complete pedigree charts, descendent charts and family group sheets are accessible as separate linked files.

My ancestors back to my great great grandparents are shown in my pedigree chart. There are pedigree charts for each great grandparent; as well as selected charts for lines that go back farther than these two sets of charts.
