WV: Amick-Bennett-Boley-Dorsey-Evans-Ewins-Humphries-Hypes-O'Dell-Ott-Persinger-Pitsenbarger-Sawyers Ancestors Included - Primary: Nicholas County, WV.

I now have "in my possession" a copy of the Family Tree that was written inside the HUMPHRIES AMICK Bible. The bible belonged to my Gr-Aunt Elsia HUMPHRIES AMICK (b. Nov. 1, 1896; d. June 1983).

Please note that as the tree "expands", there are fewer & fewer places allotted for "siblings". Therefore, including current knowledge, is that there WERE more siblings. Also, anything that you find in parenthesis, is MY additional "researched" notes.

The Family Tree listed in the Emerson AMICK & Elsia HUMPHRIES AMICK Family Bible reads as follows:

Firstly, Emerson AMICK -

Emerson AMICK's Father: Samuel AMICK
Emerson's AMICK's Brothers: Numan, Frank, Irvin, Arthur & Albert.
Emerson AMICK's Sisters: Verna, Ethel, Mary & Lila.

Emerson AMICK's Mother: Martha DORSEY

Martha DORSEY's Father: Alex DORSEY
Martha DORSEY's Brothers: Lemon, Luther, Cornelius & Wallace.
Martha DORSEY's Sisters: Bettie, Mirum?* & Rena (*crease between the two bible pages - Two pages across).

Martha DORSEY's Mother: Adeline EWINS

Alex DORSEY's Brothers: Cornelius & Addison.
Alex DORSEY's Sisters: HYPES (assuming a md. name) & O'DELL (again assuming a married name).

Frances BENNETT's Father: John BENNETT
Frances BENNETT's Mother: Nancy PERSINGER

Frances BENNETT's Brothers: Floyd & Samson (Sampson).

Mildred AMICK (again married name).

Luther HUMPHRIES' Father: William HUMPHRIES

Should any descendents have any questions, I "have" done a great deal of work on our family geneaology. I would be glad to e-mail you the ACTUALS on the above families as accumulated to date.

The true BASIS behind this submission is that my gr-gr grandmother, Frances Elvira BENNETT was not married to William PITSENBARGER at the time of my gr-grandmother's birth (Mary Elizabeth BENNETT; b. April 30, 1869; d. February 16, 1960). Therefore, this would not be an easy task to document, other than our treasured Family Bibles.

I am told by those still living, who lived with Mary Elizabeth BENNETT EVANS HUMPHRIES, that she had an ongoing relationship with her PITSENBARGER siblings (half brothers & sisters). So apparently, this "was" general knowledge, for the time.

Respectfully Submitted,
Sandra Humphries Raedel
