Matrilineal Monday...Past My Mother

My Mother is such a doll! In 1995 at the age of 57 she suffered a brain aneurysm that has kept her physically incapacitated, mentally robbed her of her more cognible skills and thoughts. Through it all, she has kept the sweetest of dispositions. She is seldom without a smile. And her only thoughts are of her Savior and loving her family as muh as she can with whatever time she has left upon this earth.

This post is for my "Mommy", and all of my grand-Mommy's who came before her!

Cynthia Ann BEANE   was born in New Albany, Floyd Co., IN. She was the daughter of 2. Walter Maxwell BEANE and 3. Lois Velleda DREHER. She married Johnnie Lee HENRY in Covington, Alleghany Co., VA, son of Joseph Wright HENRY and Betty Louise Rotge. He was born in San Antonio, Bexar Co, TX.

Lois Velleda DREHER
was born in Georgetown, FLoyd Co., IN. She was the daughter of 6. Henry Condar DREHER Jr. and 7. Irene Caroline BANET. She married Walter Maxwell BEANE in Presidio, San Francisco, CA, son of John Monroe Bean, Sr. and Mary ELizabeth Faudree.

Irene Caroline BANET was born 24 May 1906 in Indiana. She died 08 Aug 1989 in Gap Mills, Monroe Co., WV. She was the daughter of 14. Francis Isidore Banet and 15. Adeline Josephine EVE. She married Henry Condar Dreher, Jr. in Georgetown, Floyd, IN. Son of Henry Condar Dreher, Sr. and Sophie Josephine Benzel.

Adeline Josephine EVE
was born 11 Feb 1867 in Indiana. She died 05 Nov 1958 in Indiana. She was the daughter of 30. Joseph EVE and 31. Annette. She married Francis Isadore Banet in Indiana. Son of Isadore Banet and Rosalie Sprigler.

Annette was born 12 Feb 1840 in Indiana. She died 01 May 1870 in Indiana. She married Joseph Eve in Indiana.

So, this IS my matrilineal line as far back as we have been able to trace to date. Following the mother's, I go back to Annette, whose parents we do not know. It's quite the story! And I look forward to one day finding more of this line!
