Deem's Will, dated January 12, 1889 , listed Sarah Deem, wife; Sons, Jefferson Tracewell, Ralph A. and Oscar Ray. More information in the Bonnifield Family, beginning with page 26. Additional information: Permelia Deem's Will Listing: Charles E. Tracewell, brother, E. W. Deem, son and Sarah P. Deem, daughter-in-law; Mary A. Jones, daughter and John A. Jones, son-in-law; Teresa N. Robinson, daughter, America Roberts, daughter, Jefferson Tracewell Deem, grandson, RalphAlexander Deem, grandson, and Oscar Ray Deem, grandson. There was an adopted daughter, Nora Ruble, age 16 living in the household of Elliottand Permelia in the 1880 Wood County Census. Have a good picture from the Parkersburg News, Sunday, December 16, 1984, with the following caption: A PAGE FROM A WOOD COUNTY ALBUM-This is "Tracewell Manor", the colonial home built by Edward Tracewell in 1836. Later it was called "Maple Shadows." The walls of the house are 13 inches thick and built of brick made by slaves on the land. It has a 30-inch stone foundation and had fireplaces in each room. The house still stands on WV 68 at Larkmead in Lubeck District, below the Bickel Estate. From left in the photo taken in 1899 are Charles and Hattie Philips and right, Charlie Grimm. The Philipses lived in the house when the photo was taken. David Garrity and his family now own the house and are restoring it to its past glory. This picture was loaned by Wes Cochram. Submitted by the Wood County Historic Landmarks Commission as No. 140 in a continuing series. Hope this information helps some. Mary Ann
