       James Monroe Squires was born in Preston Co, (W)VA., probably on Green's Run, where tax lists show that his father Thomas Squires owned 200 acres.  When James was about a year old, the family moved to Kingwood, Preston County, where his father was the village blacksmith.  They lived across the street from the courthouse.  James was 25 years old when he married Mary Ann Gull. They eloped to Greene Co, PA to get married.  James and Mary moved to Barbour County near his Uncle John Squires.  In 1849 a child was born to them in Barbour Co, and must have died in infancy, for nothing more was learnwd about this child. They are listed on the 1850 census in Cove District of Barbour Co, with a son, Marcellus.  In 1855 ,with two children, they moved west to Doddridge Co, WV.  They loaded blacksmith tools, household goods, and children into a wagon and followed the B&O Railroad tracks that were being built.  By the time they reached Doddridge Co, they were weary, and minus the blacksmith tools which James had abandoned along the way to lightened their load.  Daniel Hudkins, an early pioneer of Doddridge County, learned about their plight and invited them to live in a log house on his farm until they were able to settle permanently.  On Oct 20 1856, James bought 100 acres from Adam Weaver on Cabin Run; he was unable to pay cash, and Weaver held a lien on it. [DB 3/147].  On Sep 9 1861, James agreed to sell 19 acres and 100 square perches to David H. Young on behalf of Weaver, to settle part of the lein. Young made the payments to Weaver for the land.  It was recorded in West Union on Aug 14 1863. [DB 5/44]   With his family safely housed at the Hudkins place, James cleared land and constructed a log home.

      

       He married May-19-1848 in Greene Co, PA,[14] Mary Ann Gull, b. 1829 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,11 (daughter of Adam W. Gull and Mary Smell), d. Jul-24-1916 at Cabin Run, Doddridge Co, WV,[15],11 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV.13

                                      Freeman Goff Squires was a son of Virgil B. Squires (a stone mason) and Elizabeth Laverna Gaston.  The eighth of their ten children, he had five brothers and four sisters.  He was sometimes known by his middle name Goff.

                                     

                                      At the time of the 1910 Census, he was a glass worker.  When he registered for the military draft in June 1917, he was working as a chauffeur.  One of the questions on the draft registration form was "Do you claim exemption from draft (specify grounds)?"  His answer was "Father & Mother to support."

                                     

                                      He was drafted into the Army, rank Private, unit Co D, 310th Rep Shop Unit, Motor Trans Corps.  His obituary states that he died shortly after arriving in Europe with the American Expeditionary Force.  "On the voyage across he contracted influenza and pneumonia, and he was immediately taken to a hospital on landing, where he died after a brief illness."  In November 1929, his mother appeared in a War Department list of mothers and widows of deceased soldiers killed in World War I.  The government offered such women the opportunity to travel to their loved one's final resting place in Europe, a program which came to be known as the World War I Mothers Pilgrimage.  Such all-expense paid trips were offered in the years 1930 through 1933.  Listed as Mrs. Eliza L. Squires of Industrial, West Virginia, Freeman's mother apparently declined to make the trip to France in 1930 and further indicated that she did not wish to participate at a later date.

                                      In the wake of her mother's death shortly after giving birth, Lenora Squires Gaston was raised from infancy by Morris Samuel Gaston and his wife Hattie I.
