[Rev. James Odell]
Pemelia's grave gives both the name of her husband and father. It reads, "Farewell Mother, Pemelia Cordelia, Daughter of Rev. Jas. Sloan, Wife of Milton H. Durham, born. May 11, 1845, Dec. June 24, 1921."

Permelia Durham, age 64 and listed as "widow", is listed as head of household in the 1910 Census for Casey County, Kentucky. A grand-daughter, "Vernice, age 9" is living with her.

Permelia Durham, age 74 and listed as "widow", is living in the household of her son Willie Durham, age 44, in the 1920 Census for Casey County, Kentucky. Willie Durham is listed as "single". Milton "Harrison" or "Hooker" DURHAM and Permelia Cordelia "Amelia" SLOAN had the following children:

William Humphrey "Willie" DURHAM was born on 14 Jul 1875 in Kentucky.36,41,44,45 There is a William H. Durham, age 54 and "single", who I believe may be the same "Willie" Durham, age 44 and "single" living in the 1920 census for Casey County, Kentucky with mother "Permelia, age 75". The only thing is that this William H. Durham lists his birth place as "Indiana". I believe this may be a mistake. More evidence is needed.
