I am trying to track down my great grandmother who passed away in childbirth of my Grandfather Pearl James Kite, son of Calvin James Kite of Page and Rockingham Co. Virginia. Pearl James was born 27 June on either 1887 or 1890. Family tradition has his mother's name as Martha Stoneburner or Stoneberger, but no one with that name has turned up in Page, Rockingham or Shenandoah counties.
We have not been able to find a marriage record and know that Pearl had no birth certificate.
I am suspicious that his mother may have been Harriet Stoneberger, who lived in southern Page Co. in 1870, 1880 and was nearly the same age as Calvin. Sallie, her younger sister is another possibility.
I would be interested in seing anything you might know about the mythical Martha Stoneburner or Stoneberger or the very real Harriet Stoneberger!
