Birth: Oct. 8, 1898
Preston County
West Virginia, USA
Death: May 24, 1927
Preston County
West Virginia, USA

The son of Samuel and Vernie Plum Roe, a coal miner, died at 28y,7m,16d; at Hopemont.

He was married.

The birthdate on the death record differs from the one in the records of his sister Isabelle - hers gives his birthdate as 7 Oct.
These family records give his name as James Gilbert Roe.

West Virginia Marriage Record:
James married Evelyn B. Cool of Preston county, in Preston county on 10 Aug, 1918. Miss Cool was 16.
The ceremony was performed by minister Archibald Moore at the residence of Mrs. Robert Williams, the record filed by EC Everly, Clerk of Court.
Both the bride and groom were residents of Preston county, WV. The minister's return has the notation that the license was issued to B. F. Taylor, with a note of consent from parents of Evelyn B. Cool.

Date of burial, 5/27/27. Handwriting on death record is poor. Location is questionable.
