|I have decided tosearch for my ancestors on both sides of my family, since growing up we had no or very little contact. I know very minute portions of my father and mother's lives before they married and we became a family.|
If you have any information that you can share with me that might assist us in our search of family, please feel free to email or write to me at the addresses on the web site.
I know my father came from Georgia when he was 17 and married Rose Workman. His father's name was Oliver Newton Kelley from Georgia. He had several half brothers but his mother, Myra Allison Stevens, died when he was 10 years during the Spanish flu epidemic in the south.
After coming to West Virginia and marrying Rose Workman, he had two sons, Marion, Jr. and Oliver Eugene, who are my brothers. When he met my mother, Jean Elizabeth McDonald (Covert), they had 5 children. They are Patrick, Richard, Cathy, Jenny, and me, Sheila.
My mother lived with family but her mother, Zella Jeffrey, died when she was 6 and her father was not around in those days. We do know her father, Edward A. Covert, moved to Cincinnati, Oh and he died there in 1969.
If you know of anyone who can help us in our search, please feel free to contact us or just drop us a line to say hello.
