I am looking for any information on the deaths and/or descendents of Walter Garfield Edwards and his wife Rachel Elizabeth Channell. Walter was born August 1881 in Doddridge County, Rachel March 21, 1877 in Tucker County. They were married at her father's home in Tucker County on July 29, 1906.
I have them traced as much as possible through the Census records. From 1900 to 1920 they were living in Randolph County (New Interest District). However, in 1930 they are living in Fairmont. They had, from what I can tell, 5 children: Gladys M. (or perhaps Mary G. -- the Census records list her both ways, born ~ 1907), Alda M. (Approx. May 1908), Sylvester (1912), Elmer (1916), and one other daughter whose name I can't decipher. It might be Wanita (1925).
The first 4 kids were likely born in Randolph or Tucker County. The last might have been born in Marion. Other than the Census records, I have nothing on their descendents. From a family bible, I have a death date of Dec. 31, 1935 for Rachel, so she might have died in Marion County.
Anything you can add would be appreciated. Rachel is the sister of my great-grandfather. I would be happy to share what I have on the rest of the family with anyone interested.
