Hello Dennis Terry,

I am Neal LeRoy Fenton, a great-great-grandson to John H Fenton and Eliza Jane Mortimore, through Francis LeRoy Fenton and Marilla Isabell Elliott. I want to know where did you find such a great photo of the John H Fenton and Eliza Jane Mortimore. It is so awesome. Thanks for sharing it with us. I would love to find more.

Dennis is my brother.
I will check where he got it but do know he was able to make contact with many of the lines in the 1980's when so many were still with us. He gathered so much family history before some of us (myself included) had even begun. Marilyn A. Terry Hudson

Hello I have been working on the Fenton line for my husband, Jack. His father was Dell Henry Fenton and his father was Elmer Elton son of John Henry Fenton. As Neal said, it was a surprise to get the pic of him and Eliza Jane. A friend of minegave me a book called "Polly Peachum and The Peggar's Opera." In it is a picture of Lavinia Fenton who married the Duke of Bolton. She was the mistress of the Dukes' for many years and had 3 sons with him out of wedlock: so his title of Duke of Bolton passed to his brother Harry
