Robey/Roby-Yesley-Yeisley connection
Dear Ted Yeisley,

The following message was a 'suggested edit/correction' message I just tried to post to Carl W Yeisley. It wasn't until I had sent it that I clicked on his Find A Grave bio to find he had passed away. Seeing you and Sue Yeisley in his Find A Grave Friends gives me hope this data with enhance your research.


Dear Carl W Yeisley,

While Family Group Sheet charting Robey/Roby relatives, I queried Yesley, Ann and yours came up.

Back in 2009, Leslie Robey, wife of Chester Robey of Falls Church, VA, shared with me all she had discovered in her genealogical quest for her husband's ancestors. Among all that data was a Robey/Roby Genealogy she found on GeoCities...doc.

Therein, was listed Thomas George Roby, b. 23jun1861, a coal miner, who's aparent 1st wife was Annettie McManimie-Yesley, no further personal data, who brought into the marriage 2 daughters:
Winnie Yesley, b. 2apr1878;
Martha Gertrude Yesley, b. 10arp1881, d. 28dec1938, who married on 27nov1907 Charles Frey, no further data.

Annettie bore 7 children with Thomas:
Harry Roby, b. feb1882, d. 25apr1882;
Kate Roby, b. feb1883 Terre Haute, Vigo Co, IN, d. 20sep1884 Terre Haute,Vigo Co,IN;
LeeRoy Roby, b. 21feb1891, d. 26jan1946 South Bend, St Joseph Co, IN,
who married 2x, #1 Ethel Ora Hines on 12may1909, and #2 Rose Lynch on 12apr1915;
Sena Alma Robey, b. 9sep1892, m. 12feb1910 William Opdenhoff, nfi;
Raymond John Roby, b. 10feb1895 Terre Haute, Vigo Co, IN, d. 16aug1967 TH, Vc, IN, m. 27aug1915 in TH, Vc, IN Gertrude Bertha Liggett, b. 4jul1896 IL, d. 21aug1959, both i. Roselawn Mem Pk, TH, Vc, IN;
Shannon Roby, b. 7may1897, d. 9nov1958, m. 22apr1924 Suzanne Mehok, nfi;
Mable/Mabel Grace Roby, b. 29aug1902, who married 3x: #1 Robert Nelson, #2 Zazharie Latines circa feb1919, #3 William Bogle circa feb1923.

I trust this data will assist you in your research, as I expect to find more out as I query Find A Grave further, since I 'stumbled' onto Annettie first, we will be learning together, but separately, sad to say.

Always, in Robey/Roby-Yesley/Yeisley and Find A Grave brotherhood,


I close as I had with Carl...
