Willard Matney Sr. W.W.I Veteran s/o Charles & Effie. He was born 5 April 1896 in Law. Co., OH and died 5 March 1985 in Law. Co., OH. He married 1920 Parnell Edith Waugh. They were the parents of 10 children, three sets were twins. My mother was one of the oldest twins. Willard served his country well in W.W.I . He was well liked and respected by all. I have said of him, that in the song Randy Travis sang about his grandfather, I Thought He Walked On Water, "well I KNEW that my Grandpa could walk on water if he wanted to, cause he was the greatest."
