My grandfather was Elmer Straw (don't know the middle initial at the moment) and I had an Aunt Mary, Aunt Bayrine, Uncle Bill, and an Uncle Charles Straw. My father was John Straw. The location was Weston, WV. Is any of this information familiar?

For those of you who may not have been involved in Straw genealogy very long, or who have not documented your Straw family history with good sound evidence for more than a few generations, you are advised that there were two destinctly different families of Straws in the midwestern states during the 1800s and afterwards. There was what I call the New England Straw family who you will find in Vermont, Maine and I believe New Hampshire. These Straws were of English descent. Many of them migrated to Ohio and other (so called) mid western states. However, many of the German STROH families in Pennsylvania anglicized to become known as STRAW and many of them migrated to the mid-western states too. I have done a lot of research into both these groups...in my attempts to put together one of the German family of STROH who were settled in the Lancaster/Dauphin/Lebanon area of PA. As I traced these people into Ohio, Indiana etc. I found that often it was very confusing since we found many of the first names in both groups of Straws to be similar etc. So beware, when you think you have found your family back another generation...or you may hook up to the wrong ancestors. I have been reading a few of the messages on this board, and I suspect this may be happening to some of you. John V. Reeb jvreeb@pacbell.net

Sue,
I was always told that Elmer D. Straw our grandfather came from pennsylvania. My mother Mary doesn't seem to know to much of the family. She is the youngest of the family. Bayrine was 17 years old when she was born.I know your father was killed in the war and Charles was killed in a hunting accident. How much more do you know of this..
Thank You
