Bertie Pugh has passed away, no she has rund off - Can you help with Bertie

Bertie L. Push is one of those great stories that everyone likes to gossip about. Unfortunately, most of the gossip is true!

Bertie Pugh was born in Grayson county in about 1894. She was the daughter of Zachary Taylor Pugh.

In 1917 she married Harvey Henry Edwards, and had three children by him. Mary Edwards, born about 1917, Ruth Edwards (my wife's mother) born in 1921, and Willie Edwards born in 1923.

Bertie decided she liked one of the neighbors beds better and had another child out of wedlock - Carver Harold Pugh - father unknown, who died in Tulara CA in 1973.

Bertie and Henry split. Henry took Willie with him, while my wife's mother and her sister went sent to live with an aunt - last name Reedy. They were basically slave labor for these people.

Mary and Ruth were told that Bertie had DIED! and my wife's mother always believed that she was dead.

Well, actually, Bertie slipped out the window and run off with a Faircloth down to Ashe County, NC, where she died a widower in 1971.

My question is this - does anyone know what happened to Mary Pugh and her brother Willie or William Pugh?

Nothing is known about them.

Of course, if they are like their mother - they are dead, they are running around the country changing names, spouses, etc.

Thanks!
