Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my family history since 1996, I have extensive records on families that lived near the Wetzel/Tyler County border of West Virginia from the 1830's through the 1940's. I am currently updating my records with readings from the 1940 census. Surnames I am researching include: Tennant, Smith, Minor, Gorby, Pittman, Wright, Fiber and McIntire.

Follow the link to my webpage to view the information I've collected on these families. I am no longer able to update the reports in the Family Tree Maker Reports and Trees section, for the most up to date research follow the links in the Related Links section. Corrections, questions and comments are always welcome.

The place of birth listed in the memorial does not agree with the place of birth in the obituary. Also check the spelling of Weirton in the obituary.

Re: Pictures and memorials for Straight and Garrett
Hello, I have just found this line in my tree and I would like to thank you for all of your work. I have been trying to connect as many of family members as possible. My nearest connection is Emma Bell Garrett # 43511508. She is a 2nd cousin 3 times removed. Are you a son or grandson of Theda Wanita Straight Tennant? Thanks again. Joanne

RE: Essie Arizona Ash Evans
Glad I could help. Also, Northview has some pretty good records. Others are kind of spotty. My great aunt is buried there but they have no record of her. She has a headstone! The "office" is on the right side of the road (if you're heading North on Rte. 2). It's kind of catch if catch can to get someone there but they are generally helpful. I haven't dealt a lot with Greenlawn...

RE: Essie Arizona Ash Evans
They are actually two separate cemeteries. Northview is on both sides of Rte. 2; Greenlawn is just on one side but there is a gravel drive that separates them.

This map may help:,+wv&sa=X&ei=DEytVP9Ux_yCBNq4gdAC&ved=0CBQQtQMwAA&output=classic&dg=brw

Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

Thanks, Rick. I appreciate your note. I didn't want to make a duplicate -- but I did with Samuel -- as that contributor is listed as inactive. I hope you are enjoying the new year!

Lyons Cemetery, Tyler County, WV.
Was wondering if you took any other pics at the Lyons cemetery. I am looking for Jacob H. Lyons and Mary Lemasters Lyons in particular.

RE: Mayfield/Tennant
Thanks! I really appreciate it! I'm trying to get a military stone for him as his grave is unmarked (Robert's). Do you know of any descendants or relatives who could apply?
Thanks again!
