Green, Annabelle Loretta b. 21 Mar 1924 Austin, MN d. 16 May 1995 Seattle, WA m. Roy Eisentrager 2 Apr 1941 Northwood, IA   (note:  Annabelle had an affair with (Bud) Wyburn in Feb 1942 and had a child by him, so states the divorce papers.  Roy was stationed at Camp Cleburne, LA at the time). NOTE: Through DNA, the child Annabelle had from the affair did not belong to Alfred Wyburn. I was that child, Sandra Lee (Eisentrager) Wideen. Much like my biological father, I grew up with the last name of Wideen, but he never legally adopted me.

Through DNA I have located my biological father. I’ve had my DNA done through Ancestry,  Family Tree DNA, and 23 and me. Between all three I’ve been able to piece the puzzle together. Here is what I have:

My father is WESLEY CLARENCE (KINSEL) WYBORNEY. His father was Clarence Edwin Kinsel who married Frances Pearl Lyle. Frances and Clarence divorced when Wesley was very young, probably between the age of 1-3. Frances remarried Morris Wyborney. Wesley took the last name of Wyborney. It’s been said Morris did adopt Wesley but he was a lot older at the time.

Jackson Sylvester Kinsel was Clarence’s father. Jackson married Emma Belle Carr.

Charles Wesley Lyle was Frances Pearl Lyle’s father. Charles married Etta May Kidd.

  1. Hi, I am related to Barnes, Joel b. 1778 CT d. 1842 Canada m. 1801 NY Margaret Peggy Ferguson & Barnes, James Reuben b. 1809 NY m. 1839 MI Mary Olive Bower. I am getting ready to do a DNA test and was wondering if you had one done. Thanks for posting the info online.

    • Yes, Eric, I’ve had my DNA done. It has helped me find a lot of the Barnes line and now I’m finding the
      Bower side too. Have you checked out,, or The only one you
      would have to pay for I believe is if you don’t already belong to it. Good luck.
