Creed Michael of Randolph County West Virginia and later moved to Monroe Township. They had four children Jesse 1901, Earl 1905, Virginia 1908 and Maurice 1916. The other children of J. Creed Michael migrated to the Akron area.

Alfred Anderson married Amy Andrus and had a son Jay Anderson in 1905.

Due to the untimely death of Lester Bennett, at about age 46 in 1820, Bessie was with children of the ages of 4,12,15 and 19.
