My father's family is from Pocahontas County. My father was Howard Taft Carpenter, m. Ruth Ellen Wadsworth. He had 6 brothers and 2 sisters: Bertha, Albert, Delbert, Logan, Charles (Shorty), Gordon (Jack), John Hopkins (Hoppy), Dora Myrtle (Helen), all CARPENTERS. Their parents were Amos Carpenter and Esther Gregory Carpenter. Oldest child, Bertha, has 2 daughters still living in Marlinton, Ruth Perrin and Hazel Browning. Does anyone know these names? I'm having a very difficult time finding birth dates for Amos and Esther. Am planning a trip to Marlinton soon to research. Many thanks.
