1910 U.S. Census, West Virginia, Marshall County

ID#1472, 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.

Elias Sheridan Alley1

ID#1500, b. 21 June 1873, d. 3 September 1952
Father: William Leaper Alley
Mother: Matilda Sibert

Birth date: 21 June 1873
Birth place: Lynn Camp, Marshall County, West Virginia.1,2,3,4

Commonly known by his middle name, Sheridan.

On 8 August 1895 in Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia, Elias applied for a marriage license with Mary H. "Mollie" Young, daughter of Reason Young and Catherine V. Eller. They are identified by the names they commonly used, Sheridan Alley and Mollie Young.5 The actual date of their marriage is unknown from the marriage record which contains the following certification dated 21 November 1910, "Minister is deceased and failed to make a return. The following sign their names as witnesses to the marriage: E. D. Young, Frederick Young." The certification was signed by J. E. Chase, Clerk.5 It is likely that they were married shortly after the issuance of the license based on the 1900 federal census which reported that they had been married four years. As the official date of that census was 01 June 1900, they could have been married as late as 01 June 1896.4

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. Elias registered in Moundsville, Marshall County, West Virginia, and was described as follows: medium height, slender build, blue eyes and brown hair.1

As of 12 September 1918, when he registered for the draft, Sheridan was employed as a laborer by the Glendale Coal CompanyGlen Dale, West Virginia.1 He and his wife, Mollie, resided at 108 Tomlinson Avenue, Moundsville, West Virginia, along with their son, Forrest.1,2 By the time of Sheridan's death in 1952, he and Mollie were living at 110-1/2 Tomlinson Avenue, Moundsville, West Virginia.3 He must have bought a farm at some point, as he is reported to be a retired farmer on his death certificate.3

Sheridan died at age 79 from cerebral apoplexy, arterio sclerosis on 3 September 1952 at Reynolds Memorial Hospital, Glen Dale, Marshall County, West Virginia. His death followed 3 years of pernicious anemia and 4 years of acute and chronic nepritis (inflammation of kidney.)3,6 Sheridan's body was interred on 5 September 1952 in the Fairview Cemetery, Rt. 250, Fairview, Marshall County, West Virginia; his name appears on the gravestone as "Sheridan Alley."3
