I am researching family tree line of Ollie Bell Maxwell, daughter of Andrew Jackson Maxwell and Rachel Bertha Cox. Ollie's first husband was Elbert Peters, with whom she had 11 children -- PEARL, born December 26, 1907, she married John Warren (they had three children, all rumored to be deceased), remarried John Warren, married Tip Brown, and finally Robert Baker; ANDY, born September 9, 1909, he married Ellen Lucy (they had nine children); SHELBY Peters, born March 22, 1912, he married Myrtle Smith (they had 10 children); LUCY Peters, born June 25, 1913 and alledgedly died shortly thereafter; LUTHER Peters, born June 20, 1914, Sophia Henson; HUBERT Peters, born December 1, 1916, (had two illegitimate children), married Sallie Warren and had nine children, then married Shirley Smith and had three children (children born using the surname Pierce), also had other children whose names are not known; LEONARD Peters, born March 11, 1918, he married Fannie Smith (they had five children); RUBY Peters, born February 20, 1921, she married George Reed Hampton (they had four sons); LOLA Peters, born May 31, 1923, she married Emmitt Samuel Johnson (they had 13 children); RUTH Peters, born March 18, 1925, (she had one son, who took the surname of Black), married Walker Black; OCIE Peters, born March 18, 1925, married Freddie Everett Nichols (they had 5 children). Ollie then married George Wombles, no known children born to this marriage. Ollie's third husband was George W. Pierce, two children born to this marriage. Haskell, born August, 1929 and died February, 1966. Also had one other child (a daughter?), no information known about this second child.
Ollie married Sherman Byrd in 1939 in Clay County, Kentucky. Ollie's death date is not known, however, we think it may be sometime around 1942, possibly in Clay County, Kentucky.
All of Ollie's children are now deceased except for Pearl and Ocie. I have quite a bit of information, however, I am missing some information. Also, there is some confusion about Ruth and Ocie being twins. I am also trying to find out about Haskell Pierce's family. Haskell married Narcissus (surname unknown), they had three children--Sandra, Tina and Cheryl. I assume that these daughters are married and have children of their own, but I'm not sure.
