Fettinger Family Genealogy Forum
My gaunt was Louvina Beard b.1876 in Pike Co.,Indiana. She m.Enos Jud Fettinger. Do not know when they m.,but Aunt Vinie had a child out of wedlock,Lester,and I do think that he was Uncle Jud's.
They later had a son named Rentus Fettenger.
I had a strange thing happen. I had never met,to the best of my memorymet any of Aunt Vine's family other than Vine hersself and I knew her well. I live in a small town in Hancock Co.,In. Am a nurse. I went in to see a patient that I had,I knew that his last name was Fettinger which is not a real familiar name,could it be one of aunt Vine's family,I thought,but no way,it couldn't be. Sure enough,I walked into that hospital room and there lived a red haired man who was the image of my Aunt Vine. He is her grandson,son of Rentus. His mother was also there. We chated a lot,but they remember the Beard family well,but no one who knew much of historical info. Anyway,to my knowledge they are the only ones left. I could give you their phone # if you would like it. His name is Thomas Fettinger,and his mother is Bernice Fettinger. They might know more about the Fettingers. They are in the Greenfield,Indiana phone book,if you would lke to talk to them about the Fettingers. Do you have any info on Aunt Vine or her Beard family?
