Good evening Andrea.We have no problem with posting on My Genforum.It's a long story so I'll try to be a brief.
We are trying to make contact with the descendants of our families if possible to connect as many a possible in Find-A-Grave, or to just say hello
We have assembled a Family Chart that is very interesting.
We'll start with the Frazier Family in Ohio County WVa.Two daughter of Roy and Lizzie Bowman Frazier married into the Hawkins and Metz families from around Metz Marion Co Wva and the general area of north central West Virginia. The girls are sisters of my late father and are my aunts.
Elsie Olive Frazier married Walter Ellis Metz in 1932 and Robert Brough Hawkins married Ruth Ellen Frazier Cannon in 1942, during WW2.
The Hawkins and Metz family actually joined in Marion County with the marriage of Jeremiah Hawkins and Lucinda Metz.
The father of Walter Metz was Samuel Ellis Metz and second child of Leonard or Lameck Metz and Martha Ann Metz, Yes, Martha was also a Metz.
Now to the Hawkins family.Sarah Juda [Sallie] Hawkins the 2nd child of Jerry and Lucinda Hawkins married Robert Brough Lyall in 1895.They had 2 boys, that we know of, Leslie Marshall and Lucian Hite Lyall. We have traced the boys to the west coast after the beginning of WW2. We know that Leslies first wife Edith died in 1945 and is buried along with Leslie and his second Wife Adelaide, who also from Western Pennsylviana.We know Leslie and Edith had 3 boys in 1940 and have traced two. No info found for Leslie Marshall ,Jr only Robert Lyall and Donald.
The other Lyall boy Lucian has been found in Los Angeles in the Social Security Index. Lucian was married to Mary Louise Bolton in 1929. Had at least 1 child Lucian H Jr., Lucian Hite Jr had a son Lucian H III and is belived to be still living.All of Lucinas family is believed to be in and or around the Los Angeles are.
There is someone from Washington State also researching the Hawkins family
We welcome you to go to Find-A-Grave. Start with Ross L Frazier, Sr. in Greenwood Cemetery, Wheeling, Ohio Co West Virginia.
If wanted, we'll share information regarding both familys.
