John Wesley "J. W." Church1,2,3,4

ID#421, b. 8 March 1867, d. 28 December 1949
Father: William S. "Bill" Church
Mother: Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts

Birth date: 8 March 1867.4,5,6 Federal census records suggest other dates: March 1868 per the 1900 census7 or circa 1869 per the 1880 census.8
Birth place: Wetzel County, West Virginia.5 However, his death record indicates that he was born in Calhoun County rather than Wetzel County.4 Although the informant identified on John's death certificate is one of his daughters, she would not have had firsthand knowledge of his birth. At this point, I lean toward the marriage license being more likely to be correct.

John married Anna Arena Hathaway, daughter of Francis Hathaway and Clory McCulty, on 15 September 1888 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by Jesse B. Poling.5

From the records I have seen so far, it appears that John was probably a farmer most of his life.4,5

John died of old age at age 82 on 28 December 1949 near Mt. Zion, Sherman District, Calhoun County, West Virginia.4 John's body was interred on 31 December 1949 in the Sand Ridge Cemetery, Lee District, Calhoun County, West Virginia.9,4

Mary J. Church

ID#422, b. circa 28 March 1863, d. 19 March 1878
Father: William S. "Bill" Church
Mother: Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts

Birth date: circa 28 March 1863 calculated date based on age at death of 14 years 11 months 19 days per gravestone
Birth place: Wetzel County, West Virginia.1

Mary died on 19 March 1878 at Long Drain Run, Littleton, Wetzel County, West Virginia. She, her cousin Mary (Roberts) Wallace and her cousin's infant daughter, were brutally murdered by John Wallace, brother-in-law of Mary Wallace.1 She has also been reported to have died on 21 March 1878, but this date is incorrect per Mary's gravestone and various newspaper accounts of her murder.2

The following account of the murder of Mary Church was told to me and to my sister by our grandmother, Nellie (Church) Kuhn. She was a daughter of Eli Church, one of Mary's brothers:
     "Mary, age 13, was working for a woman who was pregnant, and stayed on even after the baby was born. One day, the husband came in and told his wife that her parents were real sick and needed her. She got herself and the baby ready, and started across the fields with her husband. When they came to a rail fence, the husband hit the wife over the head and killed her, then took the 6-week old baby by the feet and slung it against the fence, killing it also.
     He then returned to the house where Mary was keeping the couple's 3-year old daughter. He stuffed the little girl between the feather tick and straw tick of one of the beds and thought she was smothered. He then killed Mary in the kitchen.
     The husband then went to Mary's parent's house and asked Mrs. Church for a cup of coffee. In those days, the pot of coffee was sitting on the stove above fire, so the coffee was boiling hot. As soon as she gave him the coffee, he drank it immediately, which made her suspicious that something was wrong.
     At this point the story is a little hazy, we don't know who did what - but someone returned to the couple's house and found Mary, the wife and baby all murdered. The little girl was saved (she was near to being smothered, but not quite).
     The people got together and got the husband, a rope was tied around his neck, and a man on a horse drug him through the field until he was killed."3,4


Per the account of the murder in the History of the Roberts Clan, Mary was working for her cousin, Mary Roberts, who had married George Wallace. George and Mary had two children, Esther Dora and a 3-month old baby. George and his brother, John Wallace, had moved to Wetzel County from West Alexander, PA. The story goes as follows:
     "One night George and John were out together and John came to George's home during the night and told Mary that someone was sick over at Uncle Bill Church's and they wanted her to come over. Mary got up and took the baby and they started up the hill and when they reached the top, John took the baby and smashed its brains out on a fence post. Then he attacked Mary and chased her and killed her. He went back to the house and asked little Mary Church to get up and get him something to eat, and while she had her back towards him, cutting meat, he hit her in the head with a hammer and killed her. He then went over to Churches and told them he had found them all murdered. He started up the hill with the men and Sam Church, Mary's brother, ran on ahead and found his syster lying on the floor in the kitchen murdered. He ran home to tell the family and fell on the floor out of breath. John was arrested the next day and this was his confession. This knob was always called "Murder's Knob". This murder took place March 21st, 1878."2

As is often true with sensational stories, there are numerous accounts of the event with variant details, be they newspaper accounts or versions repeated down through the generations of a family, such as the one my grandmother had told me that was one of the Church family versions (no doubt there were others). I find it interesting that my grandmother's version never mentioned that the "pregnant woman" was actually a first cousin to Mary as well as to Eli, my grandmother's father. I suspect that she probably knew that, but may have simply forgotten it with the passage of time.2

According to various newspaper articles, the bodies of Mary Church, Mary (Roberts) Wallace and the Wallace infant were all laid out in the home of William S. Church, father of Mary Church. It is unimaginable the emotions that William and Elizabeth would have had to deal with for years every time they entered the room where the brutally murdered bodies of their daughter, niece and grandniece had been laid out, waiting for their coffins. The funeral for all three victims was held Saturday morning, 23 March 1878, at a cemetery on the farm of James Vanhorn.5

Twenty years later in 1898, the minister who married Anderson "Anner" Church (Mary's brother) and Rhoda Gump was named James Vanhorn.6 I have not yet determined whether this minister was the same man who owned the farm where the cemetery was located.

Apparently the cemetery referred to in the newspaper account5 either was or would become the Thomas Chapel Cemetery, as Mary's gravestone is in the Thomas Chapel Cemetery, Wetzel County, West Virginia. The gravestone inscription reads, "Mary J. Daughter of W.S. & E. Church, MURDERED Mar 19, 1878. Aged 14 Ys. 11m. 19 Ds."1

William Anthony Church1,2

ID#425, b. 8 October 1876, d. 14 April 1955
Father: William S. "Bill" Church
Mother: Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts

Birth date: 8 October 1876
Birth place: Wetzel County, West Virginia.3,1,4

William's first marriage was to May McCune on 15 October 1898 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. Whitt Stump was the officiating minister for the ceremony, which took place at the residence of the bride.4,5

His second marriage was to Mary C. Core, daughter of David F. Core and Ellen D. Paden, on 23 February 1901 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.4,6

On 6 April 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and officially entered World War I. Every male living within the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 45 was required to register for the draft during one of three separate registration periods. The third registration was held on 12 September 1918 for men aged 18 to 21 and 31 to 45. William registered in Charleston, Kanawha County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: medium height, slender build, brown eyes and black hair.1

As of 12 September 1918, when he registered for the draft, William was employed as a carpenter with Thompson Sterrett at U.S. Explosive Plant "E", Nitro, West Virginia, and was living at Charleston, West Virginia.7 He may have been a carpenter his entire life, as 37 years later his death certificate lists "carpenter" as his usual occupation.2

William died at age 78 from arteriosclerosis (thickening of the arterial walls that impairs blood circulation) on 14 April 1955 at Wetzel County Hospital, New Martinsville, Wetzel County, West Virginia. His death certificate states that he had fallen on the floor at home and fractured his hip.2

Mary Virginia "Jennie" Bradley1,2

ID#428, b. 18 March 1861, d. 4 September 1932
Father: Jackson Bradley
Mother: Mary V. McDiffett/McDeffett3,4

Birth date: 18 March 1861
Birth place: (West) Virginia.3,2,5,6

Mary married Samuel C. Church, son of William S. "Bill" Church and Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts, on 20 March 1881 in Wetzel County, West Virginia.1

Jennie died at age 71 from myocarditis on 4 September 1932 at Littleton, Wetzel County, West Virginia.3

Her body was interred on 6 September 1932 in the Robinson Ridge Methodist Church Cemetery, Knob Fork, Wetzel County, West Virginia. Interestingly, all of the preprinted dates on Jennie's death certificate appeared as "192__" and the "2" was written over to make it a "3" for all dates except the burial date. Wetzel County must have either ordered way too many preprinted forms or else they experienced a marked decrease in deaths!3,2 According to Jennie's gravestone, she died in 1938, the same year as her husband. However, as this is not supported by her death certificate, it must be incorrect.2
