My Paternal Grandmother's Maternal 1st Cousins
Continuing my thoughts from the previous post in which I looked at my paternal Grandmother's paternal first cousins, this post focuses on her maternal first cousins which would be the grandchildren of David Frizzell and Rebecca Manley. My Grandmother Pearl(b. 1891) and her siblings descend thru David and Rebecca's daughter, Thelitha Ann(Annie) Frizzell Jakes. Known Ancestor surnames include Frizzell(2), Deason(2), Weaver(2), Godfrey(2), Kennedy, and Manley.
I'm still not sure that this listing is correct. I've used census records, death certificates, obituaries, wills, etc. but due to the recycling of names and the use of nicknames I don't know that I can ever get it to a high degree of certainty. So... if you are in this branch and can offer any help in untangling I'd be more than glad to hear from you.
Pearl has about 43 maternal 1st cousins There are multiple marriages into the Brown, Gibson, Taylor, and Delbridge family on this side. These cousins' dates of birth span the years from about 1864 to 1905 so it is likely that she may have known many of them. While some of them moved to Michigan or Texas, the majority stayed in the middle Tennessee area particularly around Rutherford and Bedford County.
Pearl's Maternal 1st Cousins:
Leander Perkins Frizzell's Children: Mary Mollie Frizzell Kelton, Rebecca Elizabeth "Bettie" Frizzell Brown, Gertrude Frizzell(never married), Daisy Lee Frizzell Brown, Cassie Manley Frizzell Newman,. Ella Frizzell Newman

|This is Pearl Gray Jakes Cooke with her niece|
Olive Bell Shriver and Olive's husband, Sam
Taken about 1975
Her Paternal 1st Cousins---grandchildren of George Jakes and Catherine Morrow. Ancestors include Jakes, Harger, Merryman, Stewart, Morrow, Sutton, Craig, Moore/More, Knox, Johnstone etc.
Ann Jakes Gibson's children: John Thomas Gibson, Sarah C Gibson Shelton, Samuel B. Gibson, Joanna Gibson, Rollie Gibson, N.N. Gibson. (Joanna & N.N. died young with no issue)
Parthenia Jakes McEwen's children: Wm H. McEwen, Charles McEwen, Dallas McEwen, James McEwen, Hallie McEwen, Sydney McEwen, Thomas McEwen.
Jane Jakes McEwen's child: Brady Miller McEwen(died young no issue)
That's about eleven cousins from her Dad's side. I have DNA matches showing in the Thrulines for descendants of Sarah C Gibson Shelton and also Rollie Gibson. There are likely a few other matches who descend from the Jakes / Morrow connection that don't have public trees or their DNA attached to a tree. I'll check out her Maternal 1st Cousins in a future post. There were many more of them. The Jakes lived in Bellbuckle and the Beech Grove area of Tennessee.
