My GGrandmother, Anna GOODPASTER, B.May 1877 in Bath Co., m. Abt 1893 to my GGrandfather George Thomas GREEN (Greene,Greane). They had two sons, Roy GREEN b. August 1894 d.

Records indicate Anna married Lafe SPENCE March 1, 1905 in Bath Co. and had a daughter Goldie SPENCE b, abt. 1906 in Bath Co. Lafe may have died or they were divorced before 1908. The 1910 Census shows Annie married to Aaron MYERS b. abt 1855, who had been married twice previously. The census lists Paul MYERS b. abt. 1908 as the son of Annie and Aaron. Aaron had older children: Leonard MYERS b. abt 1889, Farmer Myers b. abt. 1892, and Fred Myers b. abt. 1896. My grandfather indicated that Annie was widowed again by about 1930 and may have moved to Ohio or Indiana to be near one of her sons. I am looking for any information on Goldie SPENCE, Paul MYERS and, of course my GGrandparents and their progenitors. I am especially interested in finding info on William S.
