I am trying to find something out about my family, I hope someone will read this and be able to help me.
My Grandfather was Abraham Massey from Danville, VA. He married Cora Moore from I believe Red Sulfur Springs, WV.
They had 5 children- Jefferson ( Jeff ), Ira ( Rueben ), Harvey ( my father ), Ethel and Dorothy.
They lived in Danville, VA until I believe the 1920's and they moved to Chandlersville, OH.
All of these family members have passed away.
No one in our family knows anything about our ancestors so if anyone has any info please contact me at [contact link]
