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.

20 "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)

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)

23 "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."
