NOTE: No Peter "FELLER(S)" can be found in the area, and the only Peter of his age in the area is this Peter KELLER. However, it appears to be the correct family due to the ages and names of the children, and because the person listed before them is a Joseph KELLER (Joseph Feller, their son), and then the family listed after them is Samuel FELLER, and after Samuel, Moses FELLER. Possibly the census taker 'heard' Keller rather than Feller when jotting the info down.
"Peter Feller, a native of the Keystone State, came from Fairfield county, Ohio, [to Eagle Twp.] in the fall of 1834, with his wife, Catherine, and eleven children. He settled in Section 8, where both he and his wife passed the remainder of their days, the former dying in 1856, and the latter in 1859. Their son Joseph resides upon the old homestead".

_Samuel POWELL ___+ | |--George W. POWELL | |_Sarah ROBENAULT _+
"HISTORY OF HANCOCK COUNTY, OHIO", Warner, Beers & CO., 1886, p 776. "George W. POWELL... born in Fairfield Co., Ohio, January 11, 1826, son of Samuel and Sarah (Rabenalt) Powell, who settled in Liberty Twp., in this county, in 1834. He is one of 8 sons and 5 daughters...".
"I am the oldest of a family of twelve children. I was born January 11th, 1826, near Lithopolis, Fairfield Co., Ohio. My father's name was Samuel; and he was the oldest of Peter Powell's family. My mother's maiden name was Sarah Raubenalt. She was the tenth child of a family of eleven, and was born on the farm where I was born. Her father's name was Peter, and her mother's maiden name Barbara Knerr. Bother were born in Pennsylvania, of German parentage.
"The first eight years of my life were spent on the farm of my birth place. Many incidents of that period are still fresh in my memory, one of which I shall relate, to illustrate the freaks of childhood and the modes of farm-life at that time. In those days the period of childhood and youth was not ignored, as at present; but it was real, and was enjoyed as such by the young.
"The children were not tran[s]formed from infants to "ladies and gentleman" all at once; but they lived, were dressed, enjoyed themselves, and were treated as children until they naturally developed into men and women. The boys did not wear boots and plug hats as soon as they were able to walk. Nor did the girls wear high-heeled shoes, lace tight, and "receive company" before they were able to talk plainly, as is frequently the case at the present day.
"Well, according to the usages of that day, I wore 'petticoats' until the age of five, when I was dressed in pants and coat. Of course, I felt quite proud of my new suit, and considered myself of some importance. But it was not long till the inconvenience of dressing and undressing became very irksome, and I longed for the free and easy dress which I had a few days before laid by. One day when my mother was weaving with the loom, I implored her to dress me again in a 'coat', as I called it, for I had become utterly disgusted with pantaloons. She paid no attention to my cries, but kept on weaving; and I have been wearing pantaloons ever since, notwithstanding I am to some extent under 'petticoat' government this day.
"In the spring of 1834 my father, with his family, moved to Hancock County, Ohio, three miles south-west of Findlay, on the Lima state road, where I now reside. (There is much more written of his growing-up years)
"On Tuesday, May 4th, 1852, I was married to Mary Jane McCahan, the oldest of a family of nine children. She was born January 11, 1828, in Ross County, Ohio. Her father's name is Allen, and her mother's maiden name was Sarah Rogers, of Scotch descent. Both were born in Virginia. His father came from Ireland when young, and was afterward married to Margaret Ritchey, also of Irish descent. Mrs. McCahan's mother's maiden name was Mackey.
"A few weeks after our marriage we moved into a house which I had just built of round logs, on a spot recently cleared, in a dense forest. The roof was of clapboards, the floor of puncheons, and the chimney of sticks and mud. We had no bedsteads of yet; but with the aid of an ax and an auger I soon succeeded in constructing one that answered all practical purposes.
We have seven children -- two boys and five girls. (He goes on to list the names, dates of birth, and even the complexion and stature of each of the children). Article in book dated Sept. 27, 1879.
