       He married16 Ann R. ___, b. ca 1833,16 resided 1860 in Hardy Co, (W)VA.16

                                      Children:

                             i.       LAURA E. MCNEMAR b. ca 1850,16 resided 1860 in Hardy Co, (W)VA.16

         There has been much confusion over the birth date of Samuel A. McNemar.  His headstone reads Dec 30 1830.  A delayed birth record for son Joseph, submitted by daughter Margaret Martin on Feb 24 1953, gives Samuel's age at Joseph's Nov 1878 birth as 48, making Samuel's birth Dec 1829.  Samuel's age at death of 87y1m19d reported by the doctor puts his birth at Dec 31 1828, while age at death of 89 reported by the undertaker puts it in about 1826/27.  Age 21 given at marriage puts birth about 1837, while age 26 in 1860 Census makes it about 1834.

        

         He married Aug- 3-1858 in Doddridge Co, (W)VA,[41] Basheba Belle Vincent, b. Jul-20-1839 in Marion Co, VA,[42] (daughter of Joseph Isaac (twin) Vincent and Sarah Shingleton), d.

         Basheba: Basheba's first name appears variously as Bashabee, Basheba (1850 Census), Barsheba (marriage record), Basheber (death record), Bashabel (son Joseph's birth record), and Bashie (headstone and son James' death record).

        

         1860 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia):

         S. A. McNemar (male), age 26, farmer; B. McNemar (female), 19; J. A. McNemar (male), 1; and M. C. Vincent (female), 8.

         (Note:  The young male would be son James Sanford McNemar, the middle initial being in error.  The identity of the young female is not clear, but could be Basheba's younger sister Mary Catherine, despite the variance in age.)

        

         1880 Census, Doddridge Co, WV (McClellan District), enumerated in June 1880:

         Samuel McNemar, 49, farmer; wife Bashaba, 38; son James S, 20; dau Mary J, 18; dau Leetha A, 17; dau Luvina C, 16; dau Sarah R, 12; dau Virginia E, 8; dau Margaret E, 6; son Joseph A, 1.

                                      Graduate of Doddridge County High School (1945) and attended Salem College, Salem, WV, 1945-46.  Worked for two years in the office of the Ford garage in West Union.  Upon her marriage to Armand Brown in 1946, she moved to Youngstown, Ohio, where Armand's family had moved from West Union while he was overseas during World War II.  From 1962 to 1974, she worked as cashier and office worker for A&P food stores in Youngstown and vicinity.  In June 1974, with Armand's heart problems preventing him from continuing his job with A&P in Youngstown, they returned to Doddridge County, moving into the house on Oxford Road, at Cabin Run, where Geneva had lived with her family for about five years prior to her marriage.  From then until his death in 1985, Armand and Geneva operated what had been her parents' small grocery store adjacent to the family home, changing the name from Gaston's Grocery to Brown's Grocery.  With her brother Sam, Geneva was a driving force and principal compiler of this genealogy.

                                     

                                      She married Aug-4-1946 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[255] Armand Leon Brown, b. Jan-27-1923 in West Union, Doddridge Co, WV,[256] (son of Addison Avery Brown and Nancy Lou "Babe" Haught), d.

                                      Armand: Armand held several jobs as a youth, including doing custodial work at the West Union Post Office and pumping gas at the local filling station.  After his 1941 graduation from Doddridge County High School, he worked at the A&P grocery store at the end of Main Street near the court house.  He had a knack for working with fresh produce, much of which was displayed outside the store to attract customers.  One person it attracted was a pretty teenager who walked by every morning on her way to school.  Armand happened to be watching one day and saw her grab an apple and continue on her way.  He rushed out of the store and demanded that she either return the apple or pay for it.  We don't know what she ended up doing, because at this point in telling the story, Armand would always say "And that's how I met my wife.  I caught her stealing apples."  That teenage girl was Geneva Gaston, and they married a few years later.  Although it was never made clear in the telling of the story, there's little doubt that far from being an apple thief, Geneva was simply trying to get the attention of someone special.
