Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 7, 1889
Dallas County
Missouri, USA
Death: Jan. 4, 1950
Shelby County
Missouri, USA

He was the son of John Legan and Sarah Elizabeth Ball. He married Mable Florence Straw on 9-9-1912 in Wellington, Kansas. He left his family in the late 1920 from New Mexico. Said he was going to Colorado to look for work and was never heard from again. However,he turned up married to Oma L.Reed by 1930 in Illinois. She is listed as his wife on his death certificate. Mable never divorced him or remarried. The family presumed he died shorty after disappearing. He left 2 small daughters, Beulah May born 1913 and Beatrice born 1923 in New Mexico.
The birth year listed here as August 7, 1882 does not match his birth year on his WW1 draft card of 8-7-1886.
Oma and her family were from the area in Cole County, Missouri. Virgil died in Leonard, Shelby County, Missouri and was buried in this cemetery. I believe Oma's family are buried here as well, the reason for Virgil's burial here.
