Helen M. Rogers obituary, Cumberland Times-News, Cumberland, MD. This is an external link to the Cumberland Times-News obituary archive. According to the obituary, Helen Rogers was born 26 March 1911 in McMechen, WV, the daughter of Jesse O. McCracken and Edna Mae McFann.
The Geary/Gary Family and Related Surnames, a GEDCOM database assembled by Pat and Jim Geary, which can be accessed through their Geary or Gary Family Genealogy web page or through the WorldConnect Project search engine at rootsweb, contains information on the family of Jess McCracken, husband of Edna M. McFann. The date of marriage given above for Edna M. McFann and Jesse O. McCracken was taken from this source.
1. Levi's date of marriage and his wife's maiden name are from his marriage record (cited above). The record gives both their ages as 21, but the cemetery inscription and 1900 census record give his wife's date of birth as 1864.
2. Dates of birth and death for Clarence, Hazel, and George, and the date of death for Elizabeth J., are from the McMechen Cemetery inscriptions. George's year of birth is 1883 in the 1900 census but 1884 in the cemetery inscriptions.
3. George E. McFann is in the 1920 census. Included in his household are his wife, Katie McFann; son, Kenneth E. McFann; and sister-in-law, Lulu B. Chambers. From this I am guessing that the maiden name of his wife is Chambers. I am also guessing that the Katheryn McFann Singer found in McMechen Cemetery is his re-married widow.
4. Descendants of Levi Monroe McFann include Lorena Blanchard Sweeney.
