  1. Elijah E Sayre, Jr b. 1 Jan 1871, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA; d. 27 Jul 1941, Kessel Clinic Ripley, WV, Jackson Co.; bur. Longview Church Cemetery, Jackson County, West Virginia, USA.

    Notes:
    In the early pioneer days of our country, when the state of West Virginia was a part of the Commonwealth of Virginia, a land grant was made to Daniel SAYRE, of English descent, in what is now Jackson County. Said Daniel SAYRE was the forefather of a large number of the population of this community.

    One of his sons, Elijah SAYRE, married Mary Jane HUNT and the deceased was the youngest of a large family born to that union. Taking the given name of his father, Elijah SAYRE was born on Jan 1, 1870. On Feb 10, 1892 he was married to Alpina Margaret ANDERSON, and took up his residence on what is called John's Run. Mr. and Mrs. SAYRE were blessed with eleven children, three of whom, Creota, Wirt, and Lillian died in infancy, and Louise, the eldest daughter, dying in young womanhood.

    Twenty years ago, the family moved from their farm to Evans, where he has resided since. Mrs. SAYRE departed this life in June 1933. Mr. SAYRE remarried in Nov 1933, to Odalet BROOKS WOODARD, who survives as does also 20 grandchildren and many other relatives and friends. Mr. SAYRE died Sunday evening July 27, 1941, at the age of 71years, 6 months and 29 days. He was the last of his father's family to remain, his last two brothers, Daniel and Jasper, dying in recent years. (Herald, 8 Aug 1941)

    Died:
    OIbiuary

    The first traffic fatality in Jackson County this year occurred at 6 o'clock Sunday evening at Evans when Elijah SAYRE, of that place, suffered fatal injuries when his machine left the road and plunged into an electric pole.

    According to Cpl. W. M. BECKETT and Trooper Paul EBBERT, Mr. SAYRE, who was 71 years old, accompanied by Ray Adam FOX, was returning to his home. He apparently lost control of his machine as he entered the village and struggled desperately to keep it from going over the fill. After plowing along the edge of the fill for some distance, his car cut back into the road, overturned and struck an electric pole in front of the home of Justice of the Peace A. A. SHINN.

    He was brought to the Kessel Hospital by Troy KAY where it was found he had sustained injuries to his shoulder and side. Death occurred about 11 o'clock Sunday night. According to a hospital report, death result ed from injuries received in the wreck, coupled with shock and advanced ag e.

    Born on John's Run, a son of Elijah and Mary Jane HUNT SAYRE, he lived his entire life in that section as a farmer until about 20 years ago when he moved to Evans. Since that time he had operated a store there.

    Mr. SAYRE is survived by his wife, Odalet SAYRE; two sons, Delbert and Walter SAYRE of Akron, Ohio; and five daughters, Delia FREY, Beulah PRITT, Letitia SAYRE HILL and Lola ROBERTSON, all of Akron, and Beatrice HUNT of Cottageville.

    Funeral services were held at Long View church with Rev. FIBER in charge. J. B. Vail was the undertaker in charge of burial in the Long View cemetery. (Herald, 1 Aug 1941)
