Anna Arena Hathaway1

ID#1220, b. October 1873, d. 21 February 1966
Father: Francis Hathaway
Mother: Clory McCulty

Birth date: October 1873
Birth place: Calhoun County, West Virginia.2,3,4

It has also been reported that her name was Annie Irene. I believe that Annie was simply a nickname for Anna. As for her middle name, Irene is very similar to two spellings I have seen: Arena and Arina.3 Her name has also been read as Annie L. from her gravestone - perhaps an "I" for Irene was misread as an "L"? More research is needed to clear up all the questions.5

Anna married John Wesley "J. W." Church, son of William S. "Bill" Church and Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts, on 15 September 1888 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by Jesse B. Poling.4

She became a widow at age 76 when John died on 28 December 1949.6

At the time of her death, Annie's home was on a farm outside the city limits of Grantsville, Calhoun County, West Virginia.3 She died at age 92 from a stroke (occlusion of brain vessel) due to cerebral arteriosclersis on 21 February 1966. The informant listed on Annie's death certificate was her eldest daughter, Luerna Robinson.3 Annie's body was interred in the Sand Ridge Cemetery, Lee District, Calhoun County, West Virginia.3,5

1910 U.S. Census, Wyoming, Big Horn County

ID#1221, b. 15 April 1910
As households were enumerated in a census (1880 and later), they were given consecutive dwelling numbers within each enumeration district (ED). Looking at the numbers shown below, consecutive numbers within each ED indicate "next door" neighbors, close numbers indicate families living near each other.

Note that there is a link for the head of most households that will take you to that individual's person page containing detailed information for him or her. If you click the link but your browser stays on this page, it indicates that there is no detailed person page included yet for that individual. An easy way to confirm that this is the case is to check for the person's name in the "Surname Index" - names only appear for people with a person page. Those types of links will gradually disappear as I continue adding people from my database.

Original spelling is retained in the information below - be aware that census records often contain many inaccuracies.

James Riggs1

ID#1224, b. 28 February 1849, d. 15 November 1940
Father: Dave Riggs, reportedly born in Pennsylvania
Mother: unknown Slider, reportedly born in Pennsylvania2

Birth date: 28 February 1849 (year based on age at death). The date on the certificate was 29 February 1940 with the year crossed out as 1940 was the year he died. His age at death was 91 years 8 months 16 days, which my software calculates as a birth date of 28 February 1849. 1849 was not a leap year, so there was no 29th day of February that year.2
Birth place: Pennsylvania.2

James married Rebecca Starcher.1

James died at age 91 from carcinoma of the face on 15 November 1940 at Hur, Calhoun County, West Virginia.2 James's body was interred on 16 November 1940 in the Hur Cemetery, Hur, Calhoun County, West Virginia.2

Ellen D. Paden1,2

ID#1229, b. June 1846
Father: John Paden
Mother: Catharine Farmsworth

Birth date: June 1846.3 It has also been suggested that she was born circa 1848.4
Birth place: Ohio.5 The 1900 federal census recorded Ellen's birthplace as West Virginia, which would still have been part of Virginia at the time of her birth. I have my doubts as she was in her fourth marriage at the time and it's possible that her husband may have been the informant. It seems more likely that the earlier censuses that all show Ohio as her birthplace are the accurate reports.3

Ellen married David F. Core on 20 December 1868 in Tyler County, West Virginia.6,1

After her first husband died, her second marriage was to Bazel R. Hamer on 25 December 1881 in Ritchie County, West Virginia. The ceremony was performed by James A. Hogue.7

Ellen's third marriage was to John Thompson on 1 February 1895 in Calhoun County, West Virginia. Although his first wife has not yet been identified, John was reportedly a widower.8

After being widowed for the third time, Ellen's fourth marriage was to Alfred Berry, son of Robert Berry and E. (unknown), on 16 August 1898 in Calhoun County, West Virginia.9
