     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 County which must have died in infancy, for nothing more was learned 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.

    

     Married May-19-1848 in Greene Co, PA,[12] [Wife's obituary states marriage date as May 19, 1846.], Mary Ann Gull, b. Oct-21-1829 in Monongalia Co, (W)VA,[13],9 (daughter of Adam W. Gull and Mary Smell), d. Jul-24-1916 at Cabin Run, Doddridge Co, WV,[14],9 buried in Cabin Run Cemetery, Doddridge Co, WV.11

    

     Mary: "She was mountain bred, six foot tall, and weighed about 150 pounds in her younger days.  She did as much work, or more, than any of the men.  In the early days, she looked after everything and left grandpa free to do the farm work.  They had a bell on the cow and she had to go evenings and run her down, sometimes a whole hour.  She was a midwife for every baby that was born for 15 miles around."

                             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. Adams Gaston, and she therefore adopted the Gaston family name.  Morris Samuel Gaston was a first cousin of baby Lenora's maternal grandmother, Mary Isabelle Gaston Adams, and a second cousin of her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Laverna Gaston Squires.  There is speculation that Hattie Adams was also a blood relative.  The obituary of Morris Samuel Gaston identified as a surviving "foster daughter, Mrs. Cyril Scott of Oxford."  Lenora took up residence in Weirton, WV.  Her mother's obituary identifies her as Lenore [sic] Scott, her husband's obituary identifies her as Lenore [sic] Squires Gaston Scott, and the Social Security Death Index lists her name as Lenore [sic] Scott.

       According to his obituary, Samuel Jackson Squires formerly operated a farm in Doddridge County, later working in the oil and gas fields.  He also served as a car salesman, and for many years was well-known as an auctioneer.  His obituary made no mention of his endeavor as a hotel manager, which is known only from the 1930 Census and the following front-page article in the "West Union Herald" of Thursday, Aug 9 1928:

      

       COLUMBIA HOTEL UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT

          S. J. Squires, one of South West District's most energetic and successful young farmers, having leased the Columbia Hotel property, took charge last week.

          Under the new management, a first class dining room has been opened up, and on last Sunday one of the finest chicken dinners obtainable anywhere in the state was served.

          West Union has long needed a real hotel for the accommodation of the traveling public; and knowing Mr. & Mrs. Squires, as we have for some years, we predict this is a case of the right folks in the right place.

      

       In the same issue of the newspaper was an advertisement placed by S. J. Squires for an auction of his farm animals, stating that the reason for the sale was that he had moved away from his farm.  The advertisement was placed by "S. J. Squires, Owner, Columbia Hotel, West Union, W.Va."

       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.
