Jenness Russell Fick Stoker

    Jenness R.F. Stoker, named for her grandfather, Jenness Russell Fick, grew up in Walterboro, a small town in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, one of seven children, with a very large extended family.  Dinner conversations in the Lowcountry, (according to Dacre)have always been about dead people and recipes, two subjects which never fail to fascinate Jenne.

    Although she is a relatively late addition to the Stoker family, the records and memories  shared by Dacre’s uncle Patrick Stoker in Canada have given Jenne a solid background in Stoker family history. She has supplemented this with years of her own research, and with information provided by other family members. With patient mentoring by Irish genealogist extraordinaire and Stoker cousin, Douglas Appleyard in Dublin, Jenne has become a source in her own right. She finds great satisfaction in identifying and connecting bits and pieces of history to add color and depth to individuals, who might otherwise seem to be just a name on a piece of paper. Her most treasured contribution to the Stoker family is of course her two children, Belle and Parker.

   Jenne’s focus on historical research has not deterred her abiding interest in flora and fauna.

Maintaining her garden in South Carolina, as well as her love for all things equine and canine,

offer  balance.
