Here I will share the information that I have gleaned from the research into our family connections. The Marvel – Hayes – Steininger – Weaver families along with the network of connecting families. The pages of this website is a work in progress. Please check back for updates. If I find new information, I will make the necessary corrections. If you find that I have incorrect information or additions that you would like to see, please give me your comments.
Alan Marvel’s Family Tree
Who were they? Where did they come from? Where did they go? Were they rich or poor? When I started this journey several years ago, I did not have the advantage of having many living members of my immediate family to ask these questions. Over the years, I have been able to fill in my family tree with more and more ancestors.
We have traveled to Indiana, Ohio, Maryland and Delaware in pursuit of information and family identity. The Internet has been a big help. I have also had the assistance of so many relatives who also are seeking information on our families. As many find, researching your ancestors can lead you to dead ends and misinformation. I have tried to sift through the information and report only that which is fact. When I could not determine fact or fiction, I tried to give all the information I could find. On Ancestry.com I have been able to keep everything in order and following a path to success. Marvelcreations.com (no longer on the net) has given me a lot of information about the branch of the Marvel family that settled in Gibson County, Indiana as well as the descendants of John Marvell.
