I have a picture of the toddler and on the back is Clifford Dial, Died May 1921.  In my searches I did run across his name on a list including his parents and siblings but failed to print it off.  Anyone know whose child this is?

Dear Louise - See if any of this information sounds familiar!  On the website, Findagrave.com, I found CLIFFORD M DIAL, born 1919, died 1921 - he is buried in the Hatfield Cemetery in Cabell County, West Virginia.  There is a picture of his marker on this website.  Go to the website and type in his "memorial number", which is 7312274, and you will be able to see it!

On the Ancestry.com website I found on the 1920 Huntington Ward 7, Cabell Co., West Virginia, Census, a "Dial" family (spelled DYAL on the Census) that matches your CLIFFORD DIAL.  Transcribed below is the information on this Census:

Head of household, ALLEN ELI DYAL, age 21, married, born in West Virginia, parents born in West Virginia, his occupation is "car repair - railroad".

Wife, MAGGIE DYAL, age 16, born in WV, parents born in WV.

Son, CLIFFORD DYAL, age 6 months, born in West Virginia.

There is record of the marriage of ALLEN DIAL and MISS MAGGIE CHAPMAN on May 18, 1918 in Huntington, Cabell Co., West Virginia.

Information I was able to get on ALLEN ELI DIAL is that he was born Mar 19, 1898 in Cabell Co., West Virginia, the son of BENJAMIN L DIAL and AMERICA J MORRISON.

ALLEN E DIAL died in 1981 and is buried in the White Chapel Memorial Gardens Cemetery in Barboursville, Cabel Co., West Virginia.  He is also listed on the Findagrave.com website - His memorial # is 91923146.

CLIFFORD's mother, MYRTLE MAGGIE CHAPMAN DIAL died in 1985 and is also buried in the White Chapel Memorial Gardens Cemetery - Her memorial # is 91923167.

ALLEN ELI DIAL's father, BENJAMIN L DIAL, was born in 1865 and died in 1940 - he is buried in the same cemetery is CLIFFORD - the Hatfield Cemetery in Cabell Co., West Virginia - He is also listed on the Findagrave.com website - his memorial # is 7312268.

ALLEN ELI DIAL's mother, AMERICA J MORRISON DIAL, was born in 1870 and died May 9, 1900.  She is buried in the Hatfield Cemetery also and her memorial # is 7312267.  Someone on her memorial has posted a "note" that she was the daughter of JOHN TYLER MORRISON and ALMEDA VIRGINIA CHILDERS.

I hope this information helps you!  Sincerely, Melinda
