1 Born in Doddridge County, West Virginia, Harry Ross moved to Warrenton, Virginia in 1931 to work for the Columbia Gas System. He worked there until 1941. It was during that time that he married Margaret Turner, who was working in Washington but returned home to Warrenton on weekends. In 1941, Harry was promoted to foreman of the Rockville, Maryland section. Rev. Rosenburger was the Minister of Rockville Methodist Church at that time.
After World War II, the company expanded and Harry & Margaret then moved to Harford County, Maryland, where they stayed until 1956. In that year, he accepted the position of Assistant Division Superintendent, with offices in Rockville. He worked there until his retirement in 1971.
An active churchgoer since his youth in West Virginia, Harry quickly became involved in the programs and ministries of Rockville United Methodist Church. He was for many years a member of the Men's Bible Class and served as an usher and as a member of several church committees. He was one of the original member of the FFF Club.

11 NEWTON, Emily Regina Abel Lawrence

Emily Regina Abel Lawrence Newton died January 7, 2005 in Santa Barbara, California, at the age of ninety. She was born on May 30, 1914, in Washington, D.C., the elder child of Susan Maxwell Abel of Clarksburg, West Virginia, and Colonel Charles Abel and was the granddaughter of William Brent Maxwell and Emma Williams Maxwell of Clarksburg.

Emily grew up in Santa Barbara, where she attended Howard School in Montecito, and in New York where she graduated from Emma Willard School in Troy. She attended Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, and graduated from the Royal Academy in London, England, where she studied acting.

Always treasuring her West Virginia roots, she was a very generous donor to Alderson-Broaddus College, endowing the Maxwell Chair in the Humanities, as well as the Alderson-Broaddus College Scholarship Fund, established in memory of Emily's mother, Susan Alice Maxwell Tutenberg.

During her acting career she appeared on the New York stage and toured with Katherine Cornell in "The Barretts of Wimpole Street" as Henrietta. That tour included an extended overseas engagement with the USO, performing before military audiences during World War II. Among her many theatrical credits were Portia in "Julius Caesar" and Kathleen in "The Prescott Proposals."

She performed professionally under the stage name of Emily Lawrence.

Mrs. Newton was first married to Robert Lawrence Balzar of Los Angeles and then to Theodore Newton, also a stage and screen actor, who preceded her in death on February 28, 1963. Thereafter, she resided in Santa Barbara near her mother, Susan Tutenberg, who died in 1970.

She cared deeply for her fellow man and was a generous supporter of social and environmental causes throughout her lifetime, including Santa Barbara Rehabilitation Foundation, Santa Barbara County United Way, Cancer Foundation of Santa Barbara, Planned Parenthood, Laguna Cottages for Seniors, Santa Barbara Foundation, Santa Barbara County Mental Health Assn., Santa Barbara Symphony Orchestra Assn., Santa Barbara Visiting Nurse Assn., Community Action Commission, KCET, Santa Barbara Humane Society, Environmental Defense Center, Community Environmental Council and G.O.O. (Get Oil Out), among many others.

Emily is survived by her brother, Brent Maxwell Abel and his wife, Corinne, of San Rafael, California; a stepson, David Newton of Northampton, Massachusetts; two step-grandchildren, Hillary and Peter Newton; a niece, Molly Abel Warner of Monterey, California; and a nephew, Brent M. Abel Jr. of Moraga, California.

In accordance with her wishes, no memorial service will be held and her ashes will be committed to the water of the Pacific Ocean.

Donations honoring the memory of Emily Newton may be made to the Santa Barbara Foundation, 15 East Carrillo St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101 or to the Santa Barbara Humane Society, 5399 Overpass Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93111.

18 "About four years after his second marriage, James B. Davis returned to Doddridge County, West Virginia to live, where he was ordained and preached at the Middle Island Seventh Day Baptist Church. After his retirement they moved to Salem."
["Davis - The Settlers of Salem, West Virginia," p. 42] 
DAVIS, James Ball (I35952)
 
19 "According to a biographical sketch in 'The Horn Papers,' ... Richard Moody was an Englishman by birth and a tailor by trade. He arrived in Philadelphia in 1712, and in 1721 established Moody's Inn near Paterson, New Jersey, where his son Robert Moody, Sr. was born. MOODY, Richard (I35582)
 
20 "According to Chambers and other researchers, the relationship of Nicholas Muse to John Muse Sr. is unproven." MUSE, Nicholas (I35672)
 
21 "Adam and Jane (Hall) Kasson emigrated from Belfast, Ireland, sometime in the year 1722, and landed in Boston, Mass., with their family, consisting of seven sons and two daughters. From Boston they removed to Vountown, Conn., where he died Nov 1 1752, aged 71; his wife Mar 31 1767, aged 85. They called themselves Scotch-Irish, with some English blood intermixed; but some of their descendants claim to be of French descent, and left France in the time of the persecution of the Huguenots." Family F15477
 
22 "After graduating from West Virginia University with a degree in Music, she traveled through Northern West Virginia teaching music at multiple high schools. Following the guidance of her beloved father, who believed that personal growth and opportunity in the 1930's, required one to explore new people and challenges outside of the small town atmosphere of West Virginia, Virginia moved to Washington, D.C. Beginning an active life of travel unusual for single women at that time, she took a position with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. During World War II, she was active in the creation and management of emergency housing plans for families having to relocate due to loss of their husbands to the war. Following the war, Virginia was transferred to Atlanta in a regional management position for Housing and Urban Development " retiring in 1970. STUCK, Virginia Isabelle (I29399)
 
23 "After marrying Lucretia Green, Robert Moody Sr. settled in Shippensburg, Pennsylvania in 1759. A year later, he joined Thomas Cresap's group of explorers and traders to the Ohio River country. For nearly two years, he made his home at the 'forks' (presumably the confluence of the Ohio, Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers), then returned to his family in 1764. By then, they were living near the Cresap home on the Potomac River. In 1769, Robert Moody Sr. joined a party of settlers from Frederick County, Virginia, who headed for the Monongahela River territory. Upon locating a tract of land in Greene County, Pennsylvania, he settled there and fathered at least four children, including Robert Moody Jr., who grew to maturity. By 1794, his eldest son, William, was a merchant tailor in Greensboro." MOODY, Robert Sr. (I35580)
 
24 "Amos Bee was enrolling officer during the civil war, for Capt. Stone of Wheeling, preparing for draft. He served as deputy sheriff four years, 1877-81, was first clerk of the school board under the free school system, and has been clerk of the board of supervisors." BEE, Amos (I37182)
 
25 "Another family which not previously mentioned is the Strickling family, one of the most influential in the early history of the community. Dr. William and Matilda Strickling came here from Ohio, via Shirley where they lived a short while about the time of the Civil War. They founded their home at what is known as the Strickling Farm, now owned by John and Eleazer Freeman. Here they raised a family of nine children-eight boys and one girl. Dr. Strickling was a a teacher and one of the first County Superintendent, he was also a successful doctor, doing a great deal for the health of the community. But perhaps he was best known as a preacher. He spent many years preaching and practicing medicine. The last years of his life were given entirely to the ministry.

"All the Strickling family became successful teachers. F.E. served as County Superintendent of Schools in this county and is now Postmaster at West Union. James, after teaching for a time, graduated from Bethany College. He studied law and became a well known lawyer, and a member of the State Legislature, serving as Speaker of the House during a late session. His home is in Huntington."
