Notes about Children:
1) George W. Amos - the 1910 census recorded that only 3 of Annie Amos's sons were living when the 1910 census was taken, so this indicates that George died before 1910. George's widow, Clara M. married widower Thomas W. Musgrave on 7 Mar 1917 in Fairview, Marion, West Virginia - [ marriage-license page 221 ]
