Ivie Pyles Boyer,
b. 05 Jan 1901 d. Dec 1990

Miss Ivie PYLES, lived at 107 Bellview, Fairmont, WV., from about 1908 until 1956. Married c. 1952, to Roy BOYER b. 29 May 1906 d. Apr 1987. After Fairmont, they moved to Yankeetown, FL where Roy died, and I suspect, Ivie did, too. There were no children of the marriage.

Roy had at least one BOYER relative in Florida as late as 1992, who may have simply been visiting or clearing out family property to settle an estate. Both Roy and Ivie had SSN's issued in SD, where she spent the summer of 1951, as well as some other times, both earlier and later. Her brother, Albert worked at the reservation schools at Pine Ridge and Keystone in South Dakota.

Ivie was a teacher, and Sunday School teacher, too, active in the Presbyterian or Methodist church. She won an award for developing an environmental studies programme, long before the environment became the issue it is today. She collected postcards over most of her life.

Her maternal grandparents were Wilson & Clarissa SHAHAN, and lived at RR 1, Thornton, WV. at least from 1908-1913. Mr. Calvin Lee SNIDER originally owned the house on Bellview Ave. where Ivie lived with her mother, Rhodena SHAHAN PYLES, widow of Allen Aquilla PYLES, according to city directories. "Uncle Lee", as Mr. Snider was known, sold it to Ivie in 1934. He died in 1943 or 1944, and may have been a sibling or cousin of Ivie's great aunt Allena SNIDER SHAHAN.
