My great grandfather William Abraham Hoyle was born May 19, 1883, died April 11, 1961. In the Gaston County, North Carolina Index to Vital Statistics, his father's name is listed as unknown and his mother's name is Sarah E. Hoyle.
He grew up in the Casar Community of Cleveland County, NC. He served as Chief of Police in Bessemer City, Gaston County, NC for 35 years.
I have been trying to find out about the parents of Sarah E. Hoyle, but have had no luck. When William died, he left a sister, Mrs. Lillie Wright of Kings Mountain, his children: Garmon Ester Hoyle(my grandfather), Garland T. Hoyle, William Franklin Hoyle, Arthur W. Hoyle, Grace Hoyle (Mrs. Clyde Strutt), and Hattie Hoyle (Mrs. William Downey), and his second wife, Mrs. Leslie M. Hoyle. His first wife was Beedie Lutz. I am looking for ANY information about this family. Thanks.
