Hey, Byron - just checked on your info - thanks so much. David was my grandmother's father, my grandmother being Matilda Susan Durham who later changed her name legally to Sudie May (go figure)!

The one thing that I did notice is that Ballard is listed as a son of David & Maggie Alice's - he was actually their son-in-law, my Aunt Gertie's husband, and
not her brother. There were just the 4 sisters, and all of them lived here in Kingsport.

Ballard was a guard at the former Eastman Kodak in Kingsport, TN, and he & Gertie had 3 children: Delmer, Sandy & Larry. Only Larry survives; he's about 63.
My grandmother married John Hartgrove. Of their 9 children, only my mother survives - she is 85. Leslie "Lural" married Schley Netherland; their only child, Doris Nelson, died just a few years ago. Addie married a much older gentleman by the last name of Roller, and they had no children.

We had lunch Wednesday with three of my mother's second cousins; they all live in Virginia. Their mother was a sister of Maggie Alice Bishop Durham, and they are a great resource. I'll verify the birth & death dates of my great-aunts and get those to you.

Did you already tell me your connection to David Durham? Mom knew that her grandfather lived with a family in Gate City; it looks as if both his parents died when he was very young, leaving him to fend for himself.

She died Perferated Ulcer on 12 Jun 1927 in Browns Creek, McDowell County, West Virginia.61 Buried in Crumpler, West Virginia. Informant at death listed as "S. B. Freeman" of Pagetown, West Virginia. In the 1900 Census for Wise County, Virginia (Gladeville - District 124), John Failing, age 22 and "single" is listed as "brother", in the household of Mary Durham, age 32 and "widowed".

On the death certificate of Mary Elizabeth Durham, located in McDowell County, West Virginia, who died 12 June 1927, it lists that she and her husband were "divorced". I have not yet found a marriage record for Mary Elizabeth Falin and David Durham, but the death certificate of their child Pearl N. Durham, does show her father as "David Durham", and that she was born in Clinchport, Scott County, Virginia.
