This picture was buried in a box. It’s the only picture I’ve ever seen of my great grandfather, Adam Franklin Feazell. My cousin confirmed his identity.
This was a very good genealogy day.
Adam Franklin Feazell was the son of John Draper FEAZELL and Idella Josephine SNAVELY. He was born in Smyth County, Virginia on September 27, 1887 and die in Buena Vista, Virginia in 1947.
He married Clara Ellen HASH, and they had six children: Sarah Josephine FEAZELL, Ann Irene FEAZELL, Carl Vance FEAZELL, Maude Helen FEAZELL, Charles Edgar FEAZELL and Harry Louis FEAZELL.
Wonderful! if she can confirm his ID, then there must be outher pics of him or the cousin knew him.
this is great.
Congrats on your excellent genealogy day! It’s always awesome to positively identify a family photo.
Hello, I am the daughter of Charles Feazell and his wife Joan Adams. Charles’ middle name was Edgar, not Edward. I am the last surviving member of his family. Thanks for the picture of Adam Franklin.

Renee, thank you for the correction and lovely to meet you. My father was Gil Gillespie, he passed in 2010, I believe he was your 1st cousin. My grandmother was Ann “Judy” Feazell Gillespie. I will send you an email; I have been doing a lot of research on our Snavely line and would be happy to share with you.
