Greever-Wylie Geneaology

Does anyone know about the Wylie's? My grandfather was sheriff of Bland County during the 20s. He had a half sister named Sena Hamilton with whom he lived in a home directly behind the corner of an old filling station. (The home no longer exists, nor does the acreage belonging to it. Across the street was a place called Muncy's Beergraden. He died in October 1942 and is buried in a Bland cemetary. He also had a wife, Bertha Greever who was born in Burkes Garden from whom he was later divorced.
Further, as a very young child, I remember an aunt who had a home next to Little Walker's Creek. The entrance was by dirt road near the old highway which led up to Walker's Mountain. Also near her home was a logging railroad. It seems that her name was Wind(?). During this time I also remember a fire on Little Bushy Mountain.

Anyone care to comment???
