We feel that this family may tie into the Council family as the Council name shows up in the naming of their children. Moses Oppenheim m. shortly after 1900 Cassie Dyess b. Feb 1873 and was living in Statenville, Echols Co, GA in 1900. After marriage this couple moved to PA. Cassie's family lived in the area of very south GA and very north FL. Their son Arlie COUNCIL Oppenheim died in Royersfield, PA. Cassie's son COUNCIL Bruxton Thompson died in NJ. It is believed that Moses and Cassie moved to FL in their later years, opened a nursing home, and lived there until they died. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Faye Dyess

Searching for information on Robert Council born 1768 Isle of Wight County Va. He married Rebecca Weathers. Its not really this Robert I have a problem with, its that it is said that his father is Robert Council b about 1700, so of John Council and Josie Willis. Thats 68 years difference so I am thinking there is a missing generation. Anyone with any information? Theresa "Council" Longley
