My name is Melissa Scruggs Brashear. My grandmother's name was Ona Wallen Scruggs. Ona died around 1945 when my father was only 3 years old. I know very little of her- or her family. Her father's name was Woots Wallen- don't know if Woots was a nickname or a real name. Her mother's name was Ida Mae- I don't know Ida's maiden name but I believe it was Sturgill. Ona had 2 sisters- Dulcie and Monnie. They resided in Knott and Perry Counties. Monnie is still alive- and said that years ago they did the family geneology and it was traced back to William the Conqueror- but she is very old and sick now, and says she doesn't know anything about that. So, I am starting from scratch. Monnie did say that Woots had several illegitimate children. I also think he died in WW1. Maybe we can help each other. If anyone else reads this and can help me find out anything- please do so.!
