Would love to talk with anyone that has the last name of Austin. My adopted father was lou Austin. He was born in Pennsylvania, but went to Letcher Co. Ky.He was there in 1927 or before. He was married to Margaret Austin and had a son named Leroy and a adopted daughter named Leona Austin.
Leona's birth mother was Minnie Sexton Ward. I know there were a lot of Austin's in Letcher Co. I am hoping that somehow they are related to Lou.When he left Pennsylvania, maybe it was because he had relatives in KY.??????
We lived at Whitco and other places in Whitesburg. The last place was in the old boarding house in Whitco. I lost daddy Lou when they took him to the Veterans Hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee.He is supposed to have died there, but they say they have no record on him.Mother Margaret is supposed to have gone back to Pittsburg, Pa. My birth mother's Sexton family raised me in Letcher Co. I hope the Austin families of Letcher Co. Ky will have information for me.
Thank you!___________________Lona Ward Gibson
