Roderfield, McDowell Co, WV; buried here; no grave marker photo shown; death certificate posted.
"Spouse...Minnie Gray Smith
married Minnie Gray, widow of Sandy Smith, 4 Jan.1909, Anderson county, Tennessee.
Hez married (2)Susie Skaggs,23April,1945,at Big Creek, McDowell county, West Virginia.
Hez is first seen on the 1880 census of Roane county Tennessee,not as Myers, but as Morrow, with his parents, George and Callie Morrow,and 2 older brothers William and Robert Lee Morrow. Hez was a baby, age 7 months. He is on 1900 Anderson County Tennessee and it says his birth month March. His death certificate differs. By 1910 he is married to Minnie Gray Smith, widow of Sandy Smith, who died 1906 Anderson county Tennessee. Before Sandy Smith died, he and Minnie had Raleigh, Lena(Ennis), and Charles Smith. They were children when Minnie married Hez Myers, though he was their stepfather, he listed them on the census as his own. But their later marriage records show Sandy Smith as their birth father.
"Hez and Minnie married in 1909, and they had Beulah L.,and Sofia(Seluda) Myers,or Morrow in Tennessee.Then they make a move to McDowell County,West Virginia by 1914 where their son Samuel Edward Myers is born,and next Woodrow Myers is born.Hez and his father George Morrow, and Hez brothers,Robert, John, Jack, Rufus,and sister Mollie Myers all went to West Virginia near or at the same time. All will be known as Myers, rather than Morrow, to modern times, except for the father George Morrow, we cannot locate a death record for him. We do have pictures of some of the Morrow/Myers on find a grave. We are truly blessed to have these memories. The Morrow/Myers were hardworking coal miners,in Tennessee as well as West Virginia.
