Roy and Ray Churches – 117 Years Ago


Roy and Ray Churches with their grandparents, Charles Norton Lee and Esther Jenks Lee.  Their mother, Hannah Almira Lee Churches in back.

Twin sons, Raymond Charles and Roy Thomas were born to Robert Richard and Hannah Almira [Myra] Lee Churches on 15 October 1901.  The brothers were my first cousins, twice removed.  Aunt Myra was my great grandmother, Effie Lee Weaver’s sister.  In 1901, twin sons must have been a big event in the Churches / Lee / Jenks families.  Uncle Robert and Aunt Myra had one older daughter, Hazel (1897-1898), and two younger children after the twin brothers – Ivan Lee (1905) and Esther Harriet (1907).  Ray died in 1951.  His brother, Roy passed away in 1969.  Uncle Robert passed away in 1952, Aunt Myra in 1954.  Both parents are buried in the Southfield Cemetery near the plot of the grandparents, Charles and Esther Lee.

About Pat Shaul

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
