Looking for Asberys, Freemans, and Wolivers
Posted by: Shelley (ID *****5676) Date: March 27, 2010 at 10:09:54

Looking for information on the genealogy George Strayle Asbury born April 15, 1896 in Virgina.
I have a residence for George in 1900 census as Dryden, Lee, VA, 1910 census as Yokum Station, Lee, VA, 1920 census as St. Charles, Lee, VA, 1930 census as District 2, Harland KY.

George was married to a Donna Freeman born in VA. 1910 census shows Donna lived in Rocky Station, Lee, VA. She died in 1938 Harlan, KY. On Donna's death certificate, it shows she was buried in Stations Creek, VA. Is that in Lee County?

Donna was also crippled, which led to her death.

Word is (I don't know if it is true), the Asbery family did not like Donna Freeman, so George was disowned from the family when he married her.

Here is more information on families I am researching from Lee, VA

George's parents are John Asbery and Sarah E.A. Woliver.

John Asbery (born 1855) married to Sarah E.A. (Sallie Ann?) Woliver (born 1862) on February, 14, 1876 Lee, VA

I found a marriage record (don't know if it is reliable/it is not a copy of the document) that has Joseph Asbery listed as father's name for John Asbery (no mother listed), and John and Mary C. Woliver listed as Sarah's parents. At one time I thought Francis W. Oliver was Sarah's father, but now I don't know. Everything is pretty muddled from there.

Sarah's info shows:
1880 census lived in Turkey Cove, Lee, VA
1990 census --Dryden, Lee, VA
1910 census-Yokum Station, Lee, VA
1920 census- Yokum Station, Lee, VA

She died Feb. 29, 1940 Lee, VA.

Looking for more information if you can help! My father in law (Franklin Deleno Asbury) passed away in 2006. His mother (Donna Freeman) died in 1940 when he was 5 years old, so he doesn't remember anything about his mother.
Some of the older siblings remembered Harland, KY, but we know NOTHING about the families from Lee County.

Looking for documents, pictures, an info would be helpful!

Franklin Deleno Asbury is my father in law. He was born in VA, but there was a fire that destroyed the original record. Is anyone familiar with that fire? Frank was born in October of 1935.

Thanks for reading and please reply if you can help!
