Samuel C. Church1,2

ID#420, b. 23 November 1861, d. 15 April 1938
Father: William S. "Bill" Church
Mother: Elizabeth Jane "Betsy" Roberts1

Birth date: 23 November 1861 The year of 1861 is supported by Samuel's gravestone inscription.3,4 The date of birth on Samuel's death certificate clearly reads 23 November, but the year was written over with a correction, making it hard to read. However, the numbers 1861 can be made out once one knows the year. The full date can also be calculated by subtracting his age on the death certificate (76 years, 4 months, 23 days) from his date of death (15 April 1938.)1
Birth place: Wetzel County, West Virginia.1

Samuel married Mary Virginia "Jennie" Bradley on 20 March 1881 in Wetzel County, West Virginia.5
