I am seeking correspondence with any of the Minchew or Minshew familie's from Wood County.

My great grandmother was a Minshew/Minchew. She was married to a Webb. I do not know either of their given names. She was supposed to have died around 1905-7, when my grandmother Ola Mae Webb was very small, due to a ruptured appendix while carrying twins. She and the twins died. She already had a Frank Webb, possibly a Leroy and then my grandmother Ola Mae who was born in 1905. Greatgrandfather Webb then married a woman named Maude Turlington and had 5 or 6 children with her.

Grandmother Ola Mae was supposed to have been raised by Minchews/Minshews, but I don't know anything about them, except family legend that Ola Mae was disowned when she married my grandfather Archie Pardue Peek, as he was half indian.

I would love to talk with anyone about any of these people.
