Re: James Matthew Varner and Lillian Flora Ritcey

Hi Marjorie,
You are correct with regard to James Matthew Varner.  This James Matthew Varner was the son of James Matthew Varner (son of John Matthew Varner; son of John Michael Varner) and Mary Anne Elizabeth Romkey.  The children I have for James and Lillian are:
1.  Hazel Tryphena, born February 16, 1896 and died 1989, married Arthur Sumner Gates.
2.  Mabel Flora, born January 11, 1897 and died 1986, married Shirley E. Barteaux.
3.  Mary Elizabeth, born January 26, 1901 and died 1937, married Robie Saunders Whitman.
4.  Unnamed boy, born February 1906 and died March 24, 1906.
5.  Laura Isabelle, born 1908, married Dr. D. Muir Reed.
As for Seth, he and my great-grandfather grew up together and there are wonderful stories about the mischief that they got into as young boys!  Seth Lee was the son of Joseph Varner and Sarah Lucretia Veinot.  His father remarried after his mother's death to her sister, Mary Adelia Veinot, both daughters of Solomon and Sarah Veinot.  Joseph Varner was another son of the Paulus and Ann Elizabeth Joudrey union.  Seth was born November 28, 1883 and died 1962, married Margaret Blanche Hatt, daughter of Enos and Clara Hatt.  She was born 1887.  They had five children:
1.  Lillian Pearl, married George Snow.
2.  Emerson Cecil.
3.  Enos Lamont, married (1) Nellie Hiltz and (2) Evelyn Alberta Ross.
4.  Lloyd Stafford, born August 15, 1913, married Nellie May Comeau.
5.  John Maynard, born December 2, 1920, married Rose-Marie Hildred Clark.
Hope this helps!

It seems there is another James William Varner?  I also have a James William Varner married to  Lillian Flora Ritcey, with children - Laura Isabel, born June 16, 1908, Mabel F, who married Shirley E. Barteaux in 1922, and a Mary Elizabeth, born 1901, who married Robie Saunders Whitman. Don' t know who this James William Varner belongs to.  Lillian is the daughter of Isaac Ritcey and Mary Ann Gaetz.
Also wondering who Seth Lee Varner is the son of.  He was married to Margaret Blanch Hatt, and they had Emmerson Cecil, born March 7, 1908.
