OBITUARY: T. I. AMARODE
Tazwell Irven Almarode passed away Friday about six p.m., in a Richmond hospital.
He was born near Greenville, Augusta County, Oct 7, 1887, a son of Simon H. and Mary S. Almarode.
He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Ida O. Thomas of near Greenville, and Mrs. Carnie Blackwell of Orchard Park, N.Y., also one brother, Oliver H. Almarode, who is in the Kecaughon Veterans Hospital in Phoebus, and a number of neices and nephews.
The funeral was held Sunday in Dorsey Funeral Home in Hopewell by the Rev. Owen Kelly.
During the services, piano music was played and Albert Curtis sang "Some Time We'll Understand."
Pallbearers were John Barnes, Charles Moore, C. I. Boughton, Floyd M. Strickler, Eugene C. Thomas, and J. Wesley McLear. Burial was in the Appomattox Cemetery, Hopewell. Those from this area who attended the funeral included Mrs. J. H. Thomas, Mr. and Mrs. Floyd M. Strickler, Miss Shelby Jean Stricker, Mr. and Mrs. J. Wesley McLear, Dolores McLear, Mr. and Mrs. Eugene C. Thomas.
Between 1912 an 1948, Richmond had City Directories. In each of these,the majority spelling for his first name was as Tazewell rather than Tazwell, which is what the obituary states.
In addition, one of these City Directories names a wife called Bertha and two state a wife Eva L. Included in the City Directory for Richmond, his son Earle was named, There is no indication that Eva is a stepmom in any census since Tazwell is the father. In the 1940 census, Eva L. is listed separate from Tazewell. She is listed as a lodger and as a widow even though Tazewell was still alive. Therefore, it is believed that a divorce might have taken place before 1940 between Tazewell and Eva.
