Buried at Oak Grove Cemetery in Portsmouth, VA).  In the 1910 Federal Census-Virginia, William and Victoria are listed as having no children.  In the 1920 Census, they have a son listed, Vernon (age 12, born VA).  Is this their son or the son of Lonnie and Amanda Ausley Maynor?

      Lonnie was born 11 Aug. 1881 in Chatham/Moore County, NC to William Judson and Mary Ann Phillips Maynor.  He was a barber by trade.  After Amanda's death in 1910, he moved back to Durham, NC for a short period of time and then moved to Petersburg, VA.  He married Maude Mabry (daughter of Archibald & Minnie Lee Baxter Mabry) on 17 August 1912.  They had one son, Woodrow Maynard, born abt. 1914 (died May 1972--obituary states there are no surviving famiy members).  Lonnie was a barber in Petersburg and he & Maude lived with her mother on 214 N.
