Info Needed on Large Henry Family in VA or WV
I am just beginning to research my father's side of the family and have already hit road blocks.I don't have much info, but here's what I know.
My grandfather was Shirley Woodrow Henry from Fairmont (Monongah), West Virginia.He was born on 3/26/16 but I'm not sure if he was born in VA or WV.His SSN was issued in VA but that may have been because he was stationed at Front Royal, Va during WWII.He was a coal miner his entire life and eventually died of black lung in 1977.
He was the 2nd of 22 children. His father was named either Richard or John, not sure which.My grandmother was Mary Frances (King) Henry and she worked at the hospital in Fairmont for many, many years.
If you know anything that sounds like it may be related to this family, please let me know!I'm getting frustrated.
