The Calhoun County, WVa, Geers! Benny, are you reading this? Yes, we all three may be cousins.

According to the Geer records, Maud and Lee Roy were adopted by Peter Geer Sena (Aseneth) Bell in Jefferson County, OH. I'm in the process of obtaining the death cert for Maud, and then I can get her birth cert (which may be tricky).

Maud married my g-pa Hunter in Pittsburgh (near the family's farm in WVa) and she died in OH.

Check to see if Sena's sister had any children - it may have run in the family. If she didn't and she adopted children, I wonder if they adopted from the same family, perhaps another Geer or Bell? That may have been common back then, to adopt from within the family.
