Shawna, Don't know if any of the names in the are your family but it is a for instance on the spelling. Just found an Oliver Liston in the 1920 and 1930 census - first in Preston and then in Monongalia county. Found them in 1910 and the name is spelled Giston. Found him in 1900 still living at home name spelled Liston. I also found thier marriage record and his name was spelled Listen. The listing below is 1920 in Preston.
