In Reply to: Groves-White Oak Community by Darrell Wiley Groves of 1448

Dear Darrell, I am a direct decendant of WmT. Groves of White Oak, Preston Co. WVA. I have been working for many years on this family name. Briefly, WmT is the son of Geo. Wm. Groves and Hannah Graham Groves of the Masontown area. George was the eldest son of the pioneer John Groves and Eva Lloyd Elsey Groves. George and Hannah had many children according to my sources. Eve E.1839,Rebecca1840 Rachel 1844 Rosannah 1854, Samuel 1842, John W. 1846, Jacob N.1849 William Thomas 1856, J Calvin 1862 and Nathan Eugene1864. George and Hannah are buried on the family homestead according to oral family history while there is a memorial headstone for John and Eva Groves on Rt 26 north of Kingwood. Wm T. is buried at the Oak Grove Cemetery and Parley and his wife Ethel F. Friend Groves are buried in the Terra Alta Cemetery. I am the g grand daughter of this line. Parley and Ethel's oldest daughter is my grandmother, Gertrude E.Groves. She will celebrate her 97th birthday in two months and has wonderful memories of her beloved Preston County. I have quite a lot of information if this is your family line and would be happy to share. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Beverly Laing
