Transcribers Note: The persons marked with * had their names spelled by the surveyors as G'Fellers. It would seem that the initial "G" was carried down in the Fellers family, and that it should have had a period after it, rather than an apostrophe. My apologies if there was truly a family in Greene County named G'Fellers.
