Surnames: ARTHUR CARNELL ONIE LOUK (LUKE)
Submitter: Ellen (mmishaps@aol.com)
Date: 01 Jan 2003

My mother remembers a family story from the 1930s (when she was a teen-ager). My grandmother's younger brother Arthur Carnell married a woman named Onie Louk (Luke), and they moved to Mingo (County?), WV to be near her parents. My grandmother corresponded regularly with her brother and sister-in-law, and eventually the sister-in-law wrote and said that the brother had died. My grandmother eventually heard elsewhere, that Arthur had murdered one of Onie's family members, then committed suicide. I think the date may be 1932. Does anybody have any information about this? The puzzle for Mother is that several people who knew Arthur here in Alabama reported seeing him long after his family was notified of his death.

Date: 09 Jan 2003

I'm on a quest to find some old folks who might remember back to l92l in Mingo County. It seems the courthouse burned or part of it burned and many documents were destroyed. Therefore, I cannot find any documentation of the marriage of my grandparents. They were married in l92l or 22 at the latest because my mother was born on July 4, l922 in Goody, KY. I know my Grandmother tried to get their marriage and divorce papers but was told they were destroyed and she had to get three witnesses who would come forward to go before a notary verifying she had been married and divorced in odrer to ger Social Security, but that was years ago. Now I'm doing genealogy and have no proof of the marriage or divorce. The l920 census would not show them if they were not married at that time, unless they were living with her parents. Their names are Thelma Williamson, bn abt l903-5 d/o Elizabeth and George Williamson, and Benjamin Franklin Harmon. She was l5 and he was l8. They were divorced before their child, Edith Marie, was born in l922 and Thelma remarried to Joseph Robinette. If anyone out there has any ideas how I can prove this marriage and divorce I would appreciate any advice. Warms Regards, Mary curtissmaryan87@hotmail.com

I am searching for ancestors of Frank Jennings Chaffin, born in West Virginia abt. 1895. He later settled in East Liverpool Ohio and married Gladys Glenn of Midland, Pennsylvania. He had brothers, 3 or 4, one named Donald Chaffin and possibly a Robert. He possibly had a brother or Cousin by the name of Robert French Chaffin, not sure about this! Frank Jennings Chaffin had a nickname (jinx) not sure why. Gladys Glenn's parents were Etta Eugenia Baxter & Franklin Glenn,one of her siblings was Wilbur Glenn. Hope somebody on this query list will remember any Chaffin/Jennings connection. There is a rumor that Frank Jennnings Chaffin had some Native American roots, maybe this will help! Thanks in advance, Kimberly Adams van Giesen

I am looking for someone who could do some look-ups at the library. I am looking for two separate articles that would have been in the newspaper. 1. My g-grandfather was hit and killed by a train in Williamson WV sometime around 1935, give or take a few years. His name was Charles Washington Farra. He was born 1889 and died sometime after 1930. He was married to Armilda Copley and they had 3 children: Harold Glen, Raymond and Ruby Lee. 2. There was a murder sometime about 1948 in Williamson, WV. My g-grandfather was a suspect in the murder. The victim had his ear cut off then he had died. I don't know the actual cause of death but I know my g-grandfather left the state after this person was murdered. My g-grandfather was John Mann. He was born in VA in 1897. He lived in Williamson until the time he left and moved back to WV. His wife was Lena Neece Mann. This happened arount 1948 in Williamson. I hope someone out there can help me with these two requests. I will be happy to pay out any costs of copies and research time at the library within reason. Thank you.
