Re: Josie Farley ca. 1880 Summers, WV
There were two Josie McCandlishes in the 1910 census for Hinton, Summers, West Virginia.
One was born Josie Louise Cook on 26 March 1880 in Summers County to Granville Cook and Mary E. Farley.This Josie married A.W. McCandlish on 25 December 1905 in Summers County.Then, as a widow, she died 13 January 1959 in Hinton, Summers, West Virginia.
In the 1910 census, Josie Cook Mccandlish and Arthur McCandlish had no children.I don't find them in the 1920 census, but in the 1930 census A.W. and Josie McCandlish have one child, an 18 year old son named James.
The second Josie McCandlish was born Josa May Farley on 15 October 1880 in Summers County to Alexander and Sarah P. Farley.She married W Eujine McCandlish on 21 June 1906 in Summers County.
In the 1910 census, Josie Farley McCandlish and Walter E. McCandlish had three children, Wanda P. age 3, and twins Eugene M. and Elva M., age 1 year, 10 months.
In the 1920 census, the family shows up as follows
Eugene McClandlish age 46
Josie McClandlishage 38
Wanda McClandlishage 12
Milton McClandlish age 11
Elba McClandlishage 11
Ralph McClandlishage 8
Ruth McClandlishage 3 years, 11 months
By the 1930 census, both parents have disappeared and Ralph is the head of the household.The entire household is:
Ralph McCandlishage 18
Wanda McCandlishage 22
Elva McCandlishage 21
Ruth McCandlishage 13
Irene McCandlishage 60Aunt
Elizabeth Watsonage 74Aunt
I did not find death certificates for Josie Farley McCandlish, nor for Walter Eugene McCandlish.
