Notes for James Lewis Markham:
[Markham III.FTW]

James Lewis is buried in the Arcadia Cemetary beside his wife, America.

Notes for America Lacks Whorley:
[Markham III.FTW]

America had been married to a man named Mason before she married James Lewis. I believe that his name was Norwell Mason. She had three daughters from this marraige. One of these daughters, Sadie, also married into the Markham line - Alonzo "Son" Marshall Bryant, son of Mary Elizabeth Markham.
Papaw tells some interesting stories about "Grandma Markham" - like the time she hit Ray upside the head with a piece of a broken crock. Grandma Smith had borrowed a crock for making pickles in and Grandma Markham had come to get it. Ray was going to carry it but he had been drinking. America told him several times to leave it alone, that he would drop it. Well, he wouldn't leave it alone. He picked it up, dropped it, and broke it. Grandma Markham picked up a piece of it, said, "I told you to leave it alone!" and whacked him in the head with it. His head bled "all over the place". Grandma Markham was so mad that she took off walking across the field. Daddy said Ray had scars all over his head from falling down while he was drunk but the worst scar was the one Grandma Markham put there!
America Markham lived with Miles and Elois Markham Smith (her daughter) and their children, for several years until her death in about 1948. They lived in Pulaski, Virginia during the time she lived with them. She is buried beside James Lewis Markham in Arcadia Cemetary on Cemetary Rd. in Arcadia, VA.
Papaw says that her middle name is Missouri, while Brenda Marble says that her middle name is Lacks. I don't know, but I suspect that Papaw is correct because her marraige licence to Norwell Mason lists her name as America M. Whorley.
Children of James Markham and America Whorley are:
+ 1303 i.   Madeline V.10 Markham, born Abt. 1907.
  1304 ii.   Cobett Markham, born Abt. 1908. He married Unknown in Christiansburg, Virginia.
  1305 iii.   Ed Markham, born Abt. 1909.
  Notes for Ed Markham:
[Markham III.FTW]

Uncle Ed was good looking (according to Daddy) when he was younger. He worked steady all week but come Friday evening he would get dressed up, shine his shoes, and go out drinking for the whole weekend. Monday morning he would get up and go to work.
I remember Uncle Ed from family reunions. He would give me chewing tobacco if I promised not to tell Daddy and not to throw up in the car. What a guy!

+ 1306 iv.   Elois Catherine Markham, born May 14, 1910 in Arcadia, Virginia; died May 20, 1980 in Lynchburg, Virginia.
  1307 v.   Loretta Lee Markham, born June 18, 1912 in Roanoke County, Virginia; died March 03, 1994 in Arcadia, Va Maybe Lynchburg. She married (1) James Orvil Henery; born February 09, 1911; died January 28, 1998 in Arcadia, VA. She married (2) James Micheal Monroe October 14, 1929 in Lynchburg, Virginia.
