    • [HartleyRay.FTW]

      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.

      Mrs. Lena Shinn
      Mrs. Lena Shinn, 52 of 1633 Summit St. died in White Cross Hospital Tuesday. A native of Pomeroy she lived here 24 years. Surviving are her husband Howard; two daughters Mrs. Helen Wilson of Texas, and Miss Margaret Shinn, at home three brothers, Ray, of Detroit, Mich; William of Columbus, and Eldo Carrier of Akron, and three grandchildren. Friends may call at t he Cook & Son Funeral Home where services will be a 2 p.m. Friday Burial w ill be in O__ Cemetery.

      I belive this is her brothers:
      1. Ray (Raymond) Carrier Born Sept. 22, 1893 died March, 1984 lived in Michigan when Lorena died but lived in Hendersonville, NC when he got social security number 369-28-6413 Issued in Michigan.
      2. Eldo Carrier Born January 8, 1898 died August 1968 in Akron he liv ed there when Lorena died S.S. number 297-10-3850 also gives him living there at his death.
      3. William Carrier born Feb. 11, 1886 died May, 1971 social security number 284-05-3531 issued in Ohio lived in Cleveland, Ohio at time of h is death.
