Re: Matthew Lyle, b: c1750-60 Ireland
I descend through James Lyle/Hannah Alexander's daughter Margaret Lyle.I'll bring you up to date on our information.First, I was interested to see a brother James Alexander Lyle listed by you.We had all the other siblings, but not him.Margaret married James Alexander (son of Robert Alexander/Esther Beard).I wonder if someone mistakenly added James Alexander as a Lyle son instead of as her husband.
James and Margaret's daughter, Sarah Julia Alexander b. Sept. 18, 1818, married Cyrus Scott Larew b. July 18, 1816 in Waynesboro, VA.The date of the wedding was Dec. 24, 1839.Cyrus Scott Larew's parents were Jacob Larew III and Ann Scott.The children of Sarah Julia Alexander and Cyrus Scott Larew were all born in Lewisburg, VA (now WV) with the exception of their son Isaac Hall Larew who was born in 1840 in Augusta Co., VA., m. first Gillie Glendy, then Virginia Oglesby. Sarah Paulina "Sally" Larew, b. 1843, m. Dick Hannah. Hannah Larew has no birth date or husband in our records.Roberta Augusta Larew was born Feb. 5, 1847, and she married her cousin Conrad Lewis Larew (son of John McElhenny Larew/Sarah Snidow Peters) on March 12, 1874 (MY GREAT_GRANDPARENTS). James Alexander Larew b. 1850 first married Lillian Levesy, then married Nell Herbert.Mary Virginia "Jinnie" Larew b. 1852 m. Ganet Reed Alexander.Cyrus Scott Larew, Jr. b.? married Eva ?. Elizabeth Larew b.? married Joe Boswell.Susan Larew b. ? married John Boswell. William Lee Larew b. ? married Josephine Miller.Charles Graham Larew b.? married Lizzie Yates.
The children of Conrad Lewis Larew/Roberta Augusta Larew were all born at Hans Creek, Monroe Co., WV.The family farm had been owned about a hundred years at that time and is still family-owned today.Their children were: Sarah "Sadie" Julia b. Feb. 2, 1875.Cyrus John b. July 29, 1876. James Edgar b. Dec. 7, 1878. Genevieve "Geny" b. Apr. 26, 1881. Maude b. June 24, 1882. Ernest b. Apr.16, 1884. Anna (MY GRANDMOTHER) b. Apr. 29, 1885.
