Marsh Fork, Raleigh, West Virginia

1900 Census, West Virginia, Raleigh, Marsh Fork, District 116, p. 1-B

(everyone and everyone's parents b. WV, although it was Va when Calvin's parents were born.)

Fleshman, C***, May 1872, married 8 years, RR Laborer
----, Mryia|Meyer|Myra, wife, Dec 1875, bore 4 children, 4 living
----, Omer C., son, May 1893
----, Wm. E., son, Jan 1895
----, Lettie B., dau, Feb [maybe; doesn't start with a "J", at least] 1897
----, John H., son, July 1899

1910 Census, West Virginia, Raleigh, Trap Hill, District 180, p. 10B
[Everyone b. WV again, but they are using their middle names now.]

Fleshman, C. K., head, 37, married 18 years, culler for timber industry
----, A. J., wife, 34, married 18 years, bore 5, 5 living
----, Omer, son, 17, labor for Skelton RR
----, Elmer, son, 15, labor for saw mill
----, Lettie, dau, 13
----, Hutchinson, son, 10
----, Arden, son, 8

[After seeing "A J" there as wife, I went back to 1900. Even at 150% maginification it looks like "M*yia", which isn't a common name. The "A. J." in 1910 is very clear. A mystery! It clears up in 1920.]

1920 Census, West Virginia, Raleigh, Stotesbury, District 160, p. 1 A

Fleshman, Calvin K, head, 47, coal miner
----, Almira ["Myra" in 1900], wife, 44
----, Omer, son, 26, coal miner
----, William, son, 24, coal miner
----, John, son, 20, coal miner
----, Era, son, 17, coal miner
----, Everett, son, age looks like "G" - NOT like a "6".

I'm not closely related, but if you lived in Monroe County before 1850 and wanted to marry a white woman, you had your choice of a cousin or nothing, so we may be related distantly.
