General Notes for Child Lewis D. Humphrey

According to Bertha McCormick in 1954 Melissa Humphrey's mother's name was Adeline Crag. However, no confirmation of this fact can be established. In 1860 census for Kanawha County (WV) page 148 his wife was listed as Nancy. In the 1880 census no wife listed for Lewis. Also in the 1880 census a person by the name of Adaline Craigg is listed as mother-in-law to and living with Edward Stone.

************************************************************************** ***********************
In the 1850 mortality schedule shows that a Lewis Humphrey died November 1849 at the age of 63. No other single or widowed female Humphrey is listed in the 1850 Kanawha County census. Was this Lewis, Elizabeth's husband and the father of Lewis?
************************************************************************** ***********************

In the 1880 census for Kanawha County list Lewis age 50, no wife, children as follows: Charles C. age 13, Victoria E. age 10.

Husband's General Notes



Wife's General Notes

"Grandma McCormick looked like an Indian.....tall, slim, dark complected with long black hair. Grandma McCormick fell while visiting in Kate Hanna Hollow and broke her hip. While recuperating she met a man by the name of Mooney and later married him." (Recollections of Myrtle McCormick Norris)


General Notes for Child William Willard McCormick

"The McCormick and Kelley were neighbors on Lick Branch and the children grew up together. Grandpa McCormick had a strained relationship with his daughter-in-law, my mother Pearl. It seem that she had gotten pregnant and Will was the father. Then Will find out he went to Ohio to live with his uncles, Will and Jim Kelley. After I was born in March, my father return to West Virginia and married my mother in August. My parents had a total of fourteen children. My father attended his father funeral and unbeknown to him he had carried whooping cough back to his children. Lennie, Denver and I contracted the disease. However, only I survived.
Grandpa McCormick and Grandpa Kelley both fought in the Civil War. Grandpa McCormick fought for the South while Grandpa Kelley fought for the North. After they died Grandma Kelley got a pension but Grandma McCormick did not. This cause caused some hard feeling between them."
