Looking for information on the following line: Martha Coleman, daughter of Charles Coleman and Christian Townsend (March 18, 1871 place unknown -- Dec 14, 1950 Cabell County, WV) Martha had at least two brothers named Jack and Nathan Coleman; I have a picture of Nathan's family with two children labelled: Nathan and Viola Coleman, Emilie and Milford. I'm not sure if the Colemans were from Fayette County or not; I know that Martha and her husband John Irby (1864 - Sep 27, 1926 Cabell, WV) lived in a town called Victor for a number of years, and were there when my great-grandfather was born March 8, 1892 (Leslie Irl Irby). I am told that Victor is in Fayette County? I'm not sure if it still exists. I am not sure where John Irby's family is from, so perhaps they too are from Fayette County. His father's name was Thomas Irby, and he died around the time John was born, in the mid 1860s, possibly in the Civil War. John's mother was Alice A.J. Flowers, born in Cabell County, West Virginia.
