In Reply to: Clell Straight/Catherine Murphy Tyler Co., West Virginia by Bettie Denning of 700


Mrs. Denning:

Many of the Tyler County Straights were descended from Jasper Strait and Mary Kennedy. Their family cemetery is still in use at the mouth of Crow's Run near Reeder, Wetzel County, WV.

Jasper Strait was the Grandson of Peter Strait and ? Ice.
Mary Kennedy was the daughter of William Kennedy and Elizabeth Strait.

On the other side of the creek and within 2 miles of the Jasper Strait farm is 'Betsy's Run'...the location of the body of Elizabeth Dragoo (Massacre victim 1786)

You might find additional information from master archivist Richard Strait. rfstrait@juno.com

good luck in your search....David Kennedy
