Bio Photo I have been doing genealogy for more than 20 years. I travel by motor home with husband all over the country and love to visit cemeteries to see how many family names I can find, DURHAM, MORRIS, PROWS, ASH, EDDY,RICHMOND, LANE, CHASTAIN for a few. I am a Florida snowbird in the winter so try when I can to add photos as Find A Grave has helped me many, many times so I enjoy giving back.

I am looking for someone related to A. Vernon Durham. His mother was Dorathula Scroggins and his father was W.N. Durham.

Obviously posted by the person who name appears under the photograph. Doesn't show much in his Bio, but you could contact the person.

Hello Cindy,

I had added about 150 mini bios and photos for the men who once worked for Peoples Natural Gas Compression Pumping Station to which were contained in a book published on the Brave (Greene County, PA) Station. I had the author's permission to do this. My Great Grandfather, Grandfather and several Great Uncles worked at the Natural Gas Company. My mother was the postmaster for many years in the Brave community.

Most of the information I have on William Isaac Eddy was attached to the photo I had added to his memorial ... I have added census records to the following information.

It is:

Eddy, William Isaac 1899-1982
William was born on Jake’s Run in Monongalia County, WV on 4 Mar 1899.
In the 1910 National Census, at age 11, he is living with his grandparents .. William R and Mary Eddy in the Clay District of Monongalia County, West Virginia and, also, listed with his mother Leota Shrout in Clay District of Harrison County, WV.
A WWI Draft Registration card shows that on 12 Sep 1918 he is living at RD #3, Fairview, Marion County, West Virginia with his mother Leota Shrout and working for the Peoples Natural Gas Company at Brave, Wayne Township, PA.
In the 1920 Census he is a 'boarder' living with Milton E Conaway in Wayne Township, Greene County PA and working at the Brave Natural Gas Compression Pumping Station.
He married Etha Harrington, the daughter of Thomas Allen and Emma (Lantz) Harrington. No children have been recorded for this marriage.
In the 1930 Census both he and his wife, Etha, are living with his mother 'Leota Shrout' in the Clay District of Monongalia County, West Virginia along with his brother Raymond Shrout. (It appears his mother has remarried to a James .)
In the 1940 Census he owns his own home in Monongalia County, West Virginia and continues to work for the Gas Company as a Machinist.
In 1957, he was honored as an employee of Peoples Natural Gas Company with 40 years of service along with the statement that he was the 'head machinist' or 'foreman' of the machine shop at Brave Compression Station, located in Wayne Township, Greene County, PA. Bill retired with 41 years of service at Brave in 1959.
He died in October of 1982 with his last Social Security address being Brave, Greene County, PA.

Mini Bio copied with permission of James Michael Hoy from "A Village Called Brave" published in 2009 by Gateway Press, Baltimore, MD.

I believe his father may have been Richard ... I have a 1900 census which leads me to believe that but I am not certain.

If I can provide other information please don't hesitate to ask.

Just to let you know that I have uploaded photos of Sophia's marker in Glen Rest Memorial Estate cemetery. If you would like to keep them, perhaps you might want to switch the order of the photos.

This is my step-grandfather...I know that sounds funny but he was married to my father mother, Laura Patterson. He was a wonderful and kind man.

I'm so greatful for all the work you have done on this site. I just wished I could find my grandmother listed, I was told she is baried at Tol Martin Cemetery??

Martha Thomas Turner Holland
Hello Cindy,
I received an e-mail from Donna S.., in which she asked why I'd chosen to list the middle name of Bessie T. Holland as Thomas, rather than Thompson as it reads on her headstone
(see Find A Grave # 131690269) in Ancestry.Com. I sent her an attachment of Bessie's mother's death certificate and noted that her name is recorded as Martha Thomas Turner Holland. Donna sent me the following information on Martha's Find A Grave Memorial #127997970 and suggested a change or two to the Memorial which you may wish to make based on the following information:

I noticed when I looked at her mother's memorial - it is listed wrong. The correct death date is March 31, 1947. I checked with the funeral records @ Whaley Funeral Home. You can go and on the beginning page choose "Funeral Records" then choose "Smith-Rees & Whaley Funeral Homes" Then choose "H" and scroll down to "Holland" - Martha Thomas - has date of death as March 31, 1947 buried at Battle Grove.

The death certificate does repeat the year several places on the death certificate - all being 1947.

It also has birthdate as Feb 16, 1880 which I think is correct - not 1870. The 1880 census shows her with parents: Pierce and Sarah and siblings,Minnie B, 11, Sarah, 9,Francis M, 7, Martin L. 6 and Martha T. as 4 - probably supposed to be 4 months.

1870 Census has Pierce listed as Hiram P, age 18 with his parents, Richard and Elizabeth and siblings: Richard T, 23, Rebecca J, 16 and Sarah E ( I think his wife) and a baby Ida B 1/12 - must be Minnie B??? But there is no Martha Thomas Turner in that family - in 1870.

Elaine and I are working as service missionaries in the FamilySearch Library in Riverton, Utah. We are enjoying every minute of this genealogical adventure as we spend these hours helping folks trace their ancestors.

Best Wishes - Mike Prows

RE: Elizabeth Muncy Hardin
Cindy, if you like I would be glad to help you search. I couldn't find them in my tree.
Send basic information and I'll take a stab at it.

I found my husband's family. They came through the Gap with a team of Oxen pulling their worldly goods.

Most Kentucky settlers came through the Cumberland Gap, natures passage, the Gap lies between Kentucky, Tennessee and Virgina.
Our Kentucky was part of Commonwealth of Virginia, we were one of their counties,we got our name, The Commonwealth of Kentucky from them.

If you haven't read the history of the Gap, you may want too. It's very interesting and informative.

Look forward to hearing from you.
