16: This recipe came from the diary of William M. Myhre (Milo's brother) when he was in the Navy. Grandma Frances must have claimed it to write down this recipe.
17: Frances J. Favell was Arthur's father. He fought in the Civil War. This badge has made it through all of the generations thus far. The Favell's can be traced back to the Revolutionary War. Where the spelling of their name was Favelle.
18: This information came from this website: www.dolgeville.info/sights.html Faville Falls Park Location: Intersection of Peckville and Moor Roads. John Faville was born in Bound Brook, NJ. In 1778 he was given a land grant near Yankee's Bush, near Salisbury for his service in the Revolutionary War. After living there for 10 years, he bought land in the Town of Manheim at, what is know known as, Faville Falls. He was one of the first settlers in what would become the upper portion of the Town of Manheim. Homestead Site: At the bottom of the falls, there are remnants of stone walls that mark what appears to be his log home site along Gillett (Ransom) Creek. He had eight sons and four daughters. They would run down deer in winter snows since they had no guns. the foot bridge and pathway provide easy access. Grist Mill, Blacksmith Shop, & Saw Mill: At Faville Falls parking area you will find old foundation sites on the west side bank of Gillett (Ransom) Creek. Francis Asbury: Itinerant preacher and first bishop of the Methodist church preached in John Faville's barn in the upper field on the east side of the creek. The Favilles were very musical and loved to sing traditional hymns as a family.
19: So when it all comes down to it, here's what I've found as of now (2010). The Myhre's came from Norwary. I wasn't able to go too far back on their side seeing there's not much information to go by. There are quite a bit of old letters, that I believe are from cousins, but I'm still trying to figure out from which side. The Favell side however, was quite different. That can be traced back as far as the Revolutionary War. Come to find out they were one of the first families to settle in New York state. Here's an excerpt from an article that I found..."John Faville was the pioneer and settled in 1795 on Ransom Creek, where he built a grist mill and later a saw mill. Soon a little settlement sprang up there, including a blacksmith shop, a tannery and a schoolhouse. Their land remained in possession of their descendants until 1892." There is still a waterfall outside of Dolgeville, New York named after the family called Faville Falls. The pictures we have from the Faville side are all we have. There were pictures and things of Grandma Frances' but they were all destroyed in a fire in Indiana at her daughters home. I will continue my search for our ancestory and keep these books up to date.
