Sympathy Saturday - Ovid Roy McCarty

Ovid McCarty was born October 21, 1906 in Lancaster, Virginia to Benjamin Franklin and Louisa Anna (Spencer) McCarty.  He was married May 26, 1928 in Detroit, Michigan to Myrtle Mary Whiteside, daughter of Sam and Mary "May" Zimmeth Whiteside.

Ovid died on January 25, 1969 in Lancaster, Virginia.

Ovid was my second-cousin-once-removed, Karen's grandfather. The McCarty family actually marries into one of my Chinn lines (through the Downmans) wayyyyy back. The Downmans are my dad's line, the Whiteside/Zimmeth line is my mom's. 'Nuff said.
