Can anyone help me find info on my very elusive ancestors? Frank Batton, born around 1866, married Mary Bell Morris 1892. Trying to find where & when Frank was born and where/when he died (sometime after 1910.) Bell's father John Morris was soldier in 9th WV volunteers, Co. G. Looking for birth/death info on him too. Bell's mother probably named Louisa, later married James Lance. Bell born around 1868, had three children (Clora, Clara, Jay/Jake)with 1st husband named Reynolds. What was Reynolds' first name and when did they get married? or did they? Reynolds believed to have died in Spanish American war. Bell & Frank Batton had children Floy, Rumsey, and Halley, lived in Reedy. Bell & children moved to Akron by 1920, but what happened to Frank? Sorry for the long query, hope somebody can help! I'm stumped!

Frank Batten(on) is my great grandfather. He was born in Reedy/Roane W. Virginia and his parents are William and Catherine(K) Runnion. He died in W. Virginia. If you use the GenWeb pages you will find his death certificate. I am unable to locate a birth certificate on him. Mary Bell died in Summit Ohio around 1928. Are you the daughter of Penny and Richard or Gloria and James? I am your cousin if you are and would like to get in touch with you. Please respond through this message board or at;
