Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello,
I am Donna Keener from Preston County, WV. I have been researching my family for about 15 years now. I have over 34,000 names in my database. I am researching Keener's, Ayersman's, Shay's, Wright's, Sidwell's, Squire's, Comb's, Trickett's, Mitter's, Street's, Benson's,
and many others. I have published two cemetery books on Preston County. I have added the material from volume I, which is no longer in print.

I will be happy to enter any links that you are willing to provide to me, or will attach any obituaries that you wish to send to me.

Per Find-a-grave guidelines, "Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your siblings, parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Be sure to explain your relationship in the request! Any relatives who are more distantly related to you are not required to be transferred."

When requesting updates or transfers, please use the EDIT TAB on the right hand side of the memorial page so that a direct link to that individual is priovided for the update.

I would encourage anyone researching family members in Preston County to visit the Terra Alta Library. I've been working with them for the last 15 years trying to build their genealogy materials. They have a nice microfilm reader. They have a complete set of film from Preston County's newspapers. They also have partial collections for Taylor County, Barbour County, and Marion County. They have collected obituaries from the Dominion Post and have them indexed and in binders. They also have collected and bound the civil war series that is printed in the Preston County newspapers.

I have come to you via Ancestry. I am researching my Keener ancestors and trying to answer some questions about my great grandfather (whom may be William "Jasper" Keener OR Herbert Woodrow Keener and I believe you may be able to help me. Is there any way you could reach out to me privately at
Thank you so much

Thank you so much
Hi Donna,
Thank you so much for posting this information about John Earl Yeager. I have been looking for it for several years and was so happy (and surprised) to find that you had recently posted it. We have had a terrible time finding information about this family member, as he died at the State Hospital in Weston and his first family did not talk about him. He is my father's grandfather and my dad has never even seen a picture of him though they all lived in Marion County.
Thanks so much for providing this information. It means so much.
