William Boyd (Sonny) Vanover was my 3rd great grandfather. He was married to Elizabeth Lucas. Their daughter Polly married Oliver Tomlin. Oliver and Polly had a son named John D. Tomlin. John D. Tomlin married Mary Hicks. John and Mary had a son Warren Tomlin which is my grandfather.
A lot of family trees state that William Boyd (Sonny) Vanover died May 2, 1932. However, when you look at the death certificate it states a father named Samuel Vanover and mother Anna Welsh. Therefore, I don't believe that William Boyd (Sonny) Vanover passed away in 1932.
I did research Elizabeth Lucas Vanover and found that on the 1900 census it states she is widowed. William Boyd (Sonny) Vanover was on the 1880 census. Therefore, I believe he died between 1880-1900. However, I have not be able to find any information on his exact death.
Do you have any information on William Boyd (Sonny) Vanover?
