    • Researchers on this family should contact Regina T. Lauer rtlauer@comcast.net

      This family experienced much turmoil and heartache. They met in Oklahoma, moved to Kentucky, returned to Oklahoma, and were living in McDowell WV when John died suddenly leaving Rhoda Jimmie "Argie" with 14 children.

      At times the family used the name Delancy. Regina Lauer, John's great granddaughter said their family pronounced the name Delaney which was close to the pronunciation of Delancy. Frank has 2 KY birth certificates, his first one with the name Franklin Delancy and the other several years later as Franklin Dolina. June used the name Delancy on her marriage certificate in 1943, but her sister Helen used Dolina on her marriage certificate in 1943. Both sisters were married in Norfolk, VA within a few months of each other. And to make things even more confusing, Rhoda is listed as Ruth on some records.

      The Oklahoma branch of the family, the brother who adopted three of John's children after their death, pronounced the name "Doe-line-a", but Robert Dolina, told his children his father pronounced the name "Doe-lee-na."

      Son Patrick's obituary shares the story of a family divided by poverty during the Great Depression.

      "He was the first twin born five minutes before his brother Mike. They were the thirteenth and fourteenth children born to John and Argie (Tate) Dolina. Pat's natural father was an electrician in the coal mines. Pat's father died of a massive heart attack at the early age of 43 leaving his mother who had no working skills to raise the remaining nine children left in the home.

      Because they lived in a coal miner's house that had to be vacated thirty days after his father's death, the family moved to an old shack that had no plumbing and an outdoor water well high in the mountains of Roderfield, W. Virginia. Because of the abject poverty and the health conditions of the children, Donna, Pat and Mike were adopted at the age of three and two months by their Uncle and Aunt, Robert and Ida Mae Dolina and brought to Tulsa to spend the rest of their childhood growing up in the historical Tracey Park addition. They brought to them the lifelong home in Tulsa.

      Pat had a 39 year separation from his birth family, not knowing his natural mother, brothers and sisters. In 1989, by Divine Intervention, Donna, Pat, Mike and families traveled back to Welch, W. Virginia to the home of their oldest sister Bernice to meet all of their other brothers, sisters and family members. It was one of the highlights in Pat's life other than the births of his two daughters."

      Regina Lauer shared with me even more of the story.
      "After R.J's [Argie] husband died, his brother Robert/Ida Mae (married by then for 15 years and had no children) came in from Tulsa on the train for funeral in June and they saw how desperately poor the family was and RJ pregnant, etc.. They went back home and RJ called and asked if they would take the twins [Patrick and Michael] who were born that November. They were so thin and weak ? weighed less than at their birth. The doctor who examined them before the trip said they may not make the trip but they should take them. They would most probably die if left in WV in their condition and they should give it a shot. They did and they thrived! Also, when they came back to WV to retrieve the twins, Donna Marie, still young, confused Robert for her deceased father and clung to him. Robert decided to take Donna as well.

      Which brings me to Margaret Sue Dolina or Aunt Sue. Shortly after Robert took the three children, Aunt Sue went to live with her sister, Anna Bernice Dolina and husband, Frank Patsey (my grandparents). She was raised by them beside their other 3 daughters (Elizabeth Ann (my mom)b 1941, Mary Frances b 1943, Helen Jean b 1944). I didn't know growing up she was my grandmothers sister, I had always just assumed she was my mother's sister. It wasn't until one day when I heard her acknowledge grandma as Bernice that I asked and was told she was her sister, not her mother. It was not a secret by any means, it was just they loved and cared for her so much, as if she was their own child, that one would have never known. She always shared a room with my mom (Elizabeth) growing up (they were born the same year) and my mother could not have wished for a more wonderful "sister." Sue was born in McDowell County, WV and remains there to this day. She worked and retired as the Clerk of the McDowell County Courthouse. It was during her time there in 1987 that her path would cross with her brother in Tulsa who sent a letter requesting a birth certificate for a passport. Soon a reunion was hosted at the home of my grandmother, Anna Bernice Patsey, in Welch, WV. Lot of tears, laughter, and joy!"
