I am searching for any information on my great grandmother, Mary Ellen Matheny. According to my mother, she was born in Clay County, West Virginia in the mid 1800's. I have searched all available records on the Clay County website and have found nothing. My grandfather, Cornelius Matheny, was her only son and she was not married at the time of his birth, which was 1898. I did find my grandfather's marriage to my grandmother on the Calhoun County website; but he had N/G (which I believe means "no guardians") listed as parents. If you have any Mary Ellen Mathenys in your family lines, any info might help.
