Lorena Carrier Hartley was born Nov. 16, 1896. She was adopted by Mary and Thomas E. Hartley. My Great-grandma wrote in the Bible "Lorena Carrier Hartley born Nov. 16, 1896 came to us on the 24th of March 1901. She left us on May 16, 1920"
She was 21 Howard Shinn was 23 when married.( Written in the Family Bible) Lena died Sept. 6, 1949 age 52 years 10 months 24 days
In the Bible great-grandma spelled her name Lorena, but was always called Lena. This is all I know about Lorena. She had two Daughters. Her ma rriage records give her as being born in Jackson. I was told by my mother she came from a Huntington, WV orphanage. She has 3 brothers listed in her obituary. Her real name was Carrier.
