  • Notes 
    • Hester Ann Powers Shryock Fry was born in TN to parents who thereafter migrated to Indiana. She married two men; she may have divorced the first and the second is not determined. She was the mother of four children with three living to adulthood. Her life history is well documented. In early 1940 her oldest son Virgil P. Shryock moved to the Grantsburg area to farm. During his time in Crawford County he registered for the WWII draft. His son William was lost in the South Pacific but his remains were found and interred in 2005. In 1945 his sister Cecily Gay joined the nurse corps and trained in Louisville, KY. When Hester died in 1948 she was buried at Yates Union Chapel and thereafter the family migrated to Kentucky.
