Hi Michelle,

I do hope you get this. Oliver and Ada Shaw were my great grand parents. Virginia was their daughter. They did have two sons. Regininald was a pilot and was killed in a plane crash in . Archibald was my grandfather.

They were from the Braxton/Lewis/Harrison county West Virginia area. I think Archibald may have been born in Deer Park Maryland. Oliver Shaw worked on the railroad.

If you have ties to Clearfield County PA, my grandmother's family has strong ties there. Family names would have been Mollar, Commetto, and Sandri.

I do remember the name Durandetti as a Kingwood name. I know there was an Anna Durandetti. And if my memory serves me well, her neice came to Kingwood to care for Anna. Her name was Alice Fico(I'm not sure of the spelling) My mother is still living and I will have her provide more information on that family line if it will help you.

I do have a huge request. The Shaw house burned in the late 1920's or early '30's. I would love to have a copy or scan of your photo. We only have one of Oliver Shaw and few of Ada.

This is so exciting!
