ID#305, b. 31 March 1895, d. 3 April 1971
Father: Charles Keller Stewart
Mother: Olivia "Ollie" Harris

Birth date: 31 March 1895.1,2,3
This date and location was taken from the official birth record, so it is interesting that his WWI draft card shows that he was born 1 April 1895 at Wolf Run.4,5
Birth place: Moundsville, 1st District, Marshall County, West Virginia.14

Commonly known by his middle name, Earl.6

On 6 April 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and officially entered World War I. As a result of the Selective Service Act passed on 18 May 1917, every male living within the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 was required to register for the draft during one of three separate registration periods. The first registration was held 5 June 1917 for men aged 21 to 31. At age 22, Earl registered at Glen Easton, Marshall County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: medium height and build, blue eyes, brown hair.7 At the time, he was employed as a farm laborer by James Harris, Moundsville, West Virginia.7

Photograph of Earl. Date taken: 1918. Location: unknown. Wearing his World War I uniform. Click on camera to view image, then use your browser's back button to return here.8

Earl married Marie McCosh on 24 November 1926 at Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia;9

Per the obituary of his sister, Rhea, Earl was living in Beeler's Station in 1946, the year of her death.

He became a widower when Marie died in 195710; then lived another 14 years until his own death on 3 April 1971 at age 76.3,11 Interred in the Beeler Station Christian Church Cemetery, Rt. 250, Marshall County, West Virginia, his name appears on the gravestone as "Jesse Earl Stewart." The stone is shared with his wife, Marie. The inscription on Jesse's military marker reads, "Jesse Earl Stewart, West Virginia, PFC Base Hospital 353, World War I, March 31 1895 April 3 1971."3,10

Samuel McKinney Stewart1

ID#307, b. 24 January 1838, d. 21 March 1907
Father: Samuel Stewart
Mother: Sarah Wilson

Birth date: 24 January 1838
Birth place: Marshall County, Virginia.2,3,4,5,6

Interestingly, a birth date of January 1838 does not jive with the age given on either of his marriage licenses. 1838 is the year of birth that appears on Samuel's gravestone, and January 1838 is the birth date reported in the 1900 federal census. From that, he would have been 29 at his first marriage and 37 at his second marriage. Neither marriage license gives a date of birth, just his age ... but they are 24 and 33, a difference of 4 and 5 years.

As of 1867 when he applied for his first marriage license, Samuel was a farmer.4,7

Samuel's first marriage was to Mary R. Nixon, daughter of Robert Nixon and Levina Harris, on 22 August 1867 at Cameron, Marshall County, West Virginia. The minister, David Anguish, certified that he married them at "the house of the bride's mother."4,8

His second marriage was to Martha Emmaline "Mattie" Jefferson, daughter of John Jefferson and Rachel Lowrey, on 25 November 1875 in Marshall County, West Virginia. H. C. Sanford, a minister, certified that he united them in marriage at the bride's residence.6

Samuel died at age 69 from apoplexy (a stroke) on 21 March 1907 in Marshall County, West Virginia.9 Samuel's body was interred in the Fork Ridge Christian Church Cemetery, 8681 Fork Ridge Road, Glen Easton, Marshall County, West Virginia; his name appears on the gravestone as "S. M. Stewart."2

"MRS. MARTHA STEWART

In memory of Martha E. Stewart

Mrs. Martha Emmaline Stewart, born May 23, 1847, near Moundsville, Marshall county, West Virginia, departed this life Aug. 8, 1930.
     On Nov. 25, 1875, she was united in marriage to Samuel M. Stewart who preceded her in death twenty three years. Her entire married life was spent in the home she came to as a bride.

     She was a woman of strong faith, a good mother, possessed of a cheerful and happy disposition; lived a useful and beautiful life and will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
     The funeral service was conducted Sunday evening, Aug. 10, by Rev. W. E. Pierce of Cameron Christian church. Interment at Fork Ridge Christian church cemetery.

There is no death! The stars go down,
To rise upon some fairer shore;
And bright in heavens jeweled crown
They shine forevermore

Ralph Roscoe Stewart1

ID#311, b. 14 July 1886, d. 17 September 1967
Father: Samuel McKinney Stewart
Mother: Martha Emmaline "Mattie" Jefferson

Birth date: 14 July 1886
Birth place: Glen Easton, Marshall County, West Virginia.2,3,1

Ralph's first marriage was to Margaret White on 30 March 1916 in Ohio County, West Virginia. Rev. S. S. White certified that he united them in marriage at the bride's house near Wadestown. As Wadestown is in Monongalia County rather than Ohio County where the license was issued, my initial guess was that the minister may have been a relative as he has the same surname.3

He became a widower when Margaret died in 1920.4

His second marriage was to Darling R. White on 18 July 1925 at Wheeling, Ohio County, West Virginia. H. M. Riddle certified that he united them in marriage.5

At the time of Ralph's death, his address was 1910 Oak Street, Parkersburg, Wood County, West Virginia.1

Ralph died at age 81 on 17 September 1967 at St. Joseph Hospital, Parkersburg, Wood County, West Virginia.6 Ralph's body was interred on 19 September 1967 in the Mt. Tabor, Monongalia County, West Virginia.1

Samuel Carson Stewart1,2

ID#312, b. 23 August 1889
Father: Samuel McKinney Stewart
Mother: Martha Emmaline "Mattie" Jefferson

Birth date: 23 August 1889
Birth place: Glen Easton, Marshall County, West Virginia.1,3

Commonly known by his middle name, Carson.2

Samuel married Mabel Renner on 18 November 1914 at Wadestown, Monongalia County, West Virginia. R. D. Hall certified that he united them in marriage.4

On 6 April 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and officially entered World War I. As a result of the Selective Service Act passed on 18 May 1917, every male living within the United States between the ages of 18 and 45 was required to register for the draft during one of three separate registration periods. The first registration was held 5 June 1917 for men aged 21 to 31. At age 27, Samuel registered in Wetzel County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: medium height and build, light blue eyes, light brown hair.5 He was employed as a telegraph operator by the B&O Railroad Co., Wheeling Division, and was living at Hundred, West Virginia.

The U.S. officially entered World War II on 8 December 1941 following an attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. All men between ages 18 and 65 and not already in the military were required to register for the draft during one of six registration periods. The Fourth Registration, often referred to as the "old man's registration," was conducted on 27 April 1942 to register men who were between 45 and 64 years old. At age 52, Samuel registered at New Martinsville, Wetzel County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: white, height 5' 7", weight 158 lbs., blue eyes, brown hair, light complexion.3 He was still working for the B&O Railroad at Littleton and was living at Hundred, West Virginia.3

Emma D. Harris

ID#314, b. 6 August 1860, d. 22 April 1862
Father: William Harris
Mother: Charlotte Sue Bartlett

Birth date: 6 August 1860 (based on age at death of 1 year, 8 months, 16 days)1 or on 11 August 1861 (based on age at death of 8 months, 11 days.)2
Birth place: Although not confirmed, it is likely that it was Marshall County, Virginia.

Emma died at age 1 on 22 April 1862.3 and was interred in the Burch Cemetery, Burch Ridge, Marshall County, West Virginia3

I have seen two different versions of the inscription on her gravestone but have not yet located an actual photo that would confirm which one is accurate. The first came from the Tri-County Researcher, a genealogy newsletter that included readings taken from 1977 through 1981 of inscriptions on gravestones in various cemeteries. Per that newsletter, there was a stone in Burch Cemetery with the name "Emma D. Harris" that included an additional inscription, "daughter of William & E., 8 mo. 11 days."2

The second version is from the Marshall County WVGenWeb site and is based on the reading by Tammy Burch in 1998 after an extensive cleanup was done in Burch Cemetery. According to her, the name on the stone was "Emi. A. D." and the additional inscription reads, "daughter of W. & C., died Apr 22, 1862 - 1yr 8m 16day."1 At this point, I suspect that the daughter's name was Emma as reported in the earlier reading. EMMA could have deteriorated to the point that the right side of the second M was not visible - EMI A would be left. It is easy for me to believe that EMMA D. could have become EMI A. D. as the stone aged.

According to the first reading, the parents were William and E; I'm guessing they read the stone as W. & E. and changed it to William because they knew that was the father's name. The initial E. for the mother has to be an error, perhaps a simple typo in the newsletter. The reading by Tammy Burch identifies the parents as W. & C. which would be correct.

As for the little girl's age at death, was it "8 mo. 11 days" or "1 yr 8m 16day"s? I'm still working on the resolution of that question!

Bertha Harris

ID#330, b. 3 November 1888
Father: Henry J. Harris
Mother: Mary V. Greathouse

Birth date: 3 November 1888
Birth place: Marshall County, West Virginia,
The Register of Births indicates that the "Universal Church" was both the place of birth and the father's residence. Interestingly, the birth entry for Isaac Hubbs also lists the "Universal Church" as both the place of birth and the father's residence. Yet another birth entry for Carlton Harris gives the "Baptist Church" as both the place of birth and the father's residence. The Universal Church would be an abbreviation for the Universalist Church on Fork Ridge, and there is a Baptist Church a few miles away also on Fork Ridge. It strikes me as odd that these three individuals have these entries pertaining to churches when everyone else has more typical locations for a birth, such as the ridge name or town - perhaps more info will turn up later.1
