My grandmother, Jane Elizabeth Lilly traveled from her home in Beckley, West Virginia to Scranton, Pennsylvania to have a baby out of wedlock (my father). He was born in December of 1935. If you knew of any circumstances surrounding this pregnancy, please contact me. We are trying to discover his birth father. Thank you.

Yes, You are right. This was my Grandmother. We found out at my grandfather's death (he wrote a letter) that my father was adopted by him and that the family had moved to Scranton because my grandmother was pregnant. I have never been able to find out anything else.

Your response was a surprise. I posted this several years ago. Thank you.

Hello everyone. Jane Elizabeth Lilly was my great Aunt! My paternal grandmother, Mary Athelene Lilly Baird, was her older sister. My family was very close to all 3 sisters and all their offspring and their children and remains so to this day. In fact, my mother always claimed that "Aunt Betty" was her best friend. I grew up in Pennsylvania down the street from the 3rd sister (the youngest), Lucille Bam Lilly Bowden. My Aunt Lu is the mother of Tracey - the cousin you spoke of that is the treasure hunter. He currently lives near my parents, who are both still alive and in contact with him frequently. I even have a photo of my Aunt Lu and her Mother, my Great Grandmother Theora, in my shop. Plus, I named one of my miniature horse fillies JANE ELIZABETH (nickname "LIZZIE") after my Aunt Betty. I already owned the filly's older sister, who came with the name of MOLLY, which was Mary Athelene's nickname. Only seemed right to name the sister horses after the real sisters. Contact me if you are interested in more info. Susan

Mary Athalene was my beloved "Grandma Molly." I am one of six children that was born to her oldest son, William Arnold Gowder. Grandma Maolly's mom was Cynthia Jane Lilly (1870-1952)
