States: West Virginia: Marion
I am having a very hard time finding info on a certain line, as my grandmother was adopted in Marion/Fairmont. I will give you as much info as I can, dont know what will be useful in your search. I will start with my Grandmother- Betty Joane Browning( to Richard Merle Colbert). (She was adopted by Wayne Satterfield.) Her parents were- Gertrude Hawkins(b. June 12, 1910- 6/15/1934) Married Earl Marcellus Browning(b. Aug 23, 1907- Jan 26, 1936)
Gertrude parents were- Mattie B. Jones(b. abt 1887, this is the one I need info on, dont even know burial place, I found both husbands) Married Uriah Carpenter Hawkins(b May 2 1886- Aug 11, 1924) They had kids Bailey, Mary(died at birt), Carl r(died at birth), and Gertrude.
I know that Matties mother is Mariah(dont know surname), she possibly married Andrew Jones(Found Mariah/Massie married to Narew, with Mattie on census, but mattie was listed as a boy, Possible mistake?). What I need is Maybe a marriage record for Uriah and Mattie B. Jones(In fairmont/Marion) or maybe a birth record of Mattie Jones(aything that gives info on her and her parents, have nothing, I know she remarried to James McManaway). I also would like a death record or obituary for Gertrude Hawkins(She was supposedly killed in a car accident at age 24( she had two daughters, my Gmother and another(Delores Joan Brownig b. 14 Sept 1933, m. James Wilfong, she died giving birth to triplets) We know nothing on the triplets except names Jimmy, Ray, Delores, Diane, Debbie, three girls were the triplets. Also Mattie was supposedly a fortune teller/story teller in Fairmont at her house. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
