Brushy Fork School Mercer County WV

This picture was found in the home of Rhoda Spangler and Ivory Jackson Hawley. It may have belonged to either of them. It is the sincere hope of several family members that someone will identify some of the people in the picture.

I'm a great grandson of

I'm a great grandson of Rhoda and Ivory. I'm related through their son Oren Clifford Hawley and his wife Dorothy Boyd. My father is Jeffrey Hawley. I have never lived in WV, but would love to know more about the family history, on either the Hawley or Spangler sides. I was told that we are kin to the Hatfields, and a number of other stories, but my grandfather's memory is fading. Even a copy of a family tree would be great, and if anybody wants to connect over Facebook, my name is Craig Willis Hawley.
