I have been tracing my Hyre ancestors for the last several years. I have traced the Hyres back to Benken, Switzerland. The first Heyer to come to America and settled in the South Branch Valley, Petersburg, West Virginia was Lienert Heyer. I am wanting to gather some photographs of my ancestors to put in a photo album. If any one has any they are willing to share with me, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition to tracing my Hyre ancestors, I am trying to trace my Waldron ancestors. My Waldron ancestors are mainly living in the state of West Virginia. If anyone has ties to these, please contact me.
