BAILEY -
I am looking for information on my grandfather, Willie Woodrow Bailey (dob 9/13/1920) of Rock/Mercer, WV. His parents were Charles Bailey and Mary Bailey and had at least 8 brothers and sisters - Minnie, Alton, Gilbert, Dee, Eulala, George and Jane. Those are the ones that I know, but I understand from my grandmother that he also had a few older brothers that she could not remember the names of. Any information about any of these folks would be greatly appreciated. thank you.

CAPERTON, COBURN, WIMMER -
I am looking for information about Jeremiah Coburn. I believe his children were David, Thomas and Gordon Coburn. David was born 1805, married Ursula ? about 1840. Their children are Charles, Rebecca, John, Cynthia, Thomas, Henderson, Sarah and James. On June 02, 1854 David married Catherine Wimmer (b. February 10, 1825. Their children are Cynthia, Jeremiah, George, Beauregard, and Mary. David died March 12, 1895 in Princeton, WV. I believe this family is connected to the Caperton family because Ursula's children are listed in the census records in the Adam Caperton household.

WHITLOW -
I am trying to find the Joseph Wallace Whitlow family in the Mercer County 1920 Census. In 1900 and 1910 Censuses, they were living and are listed in the East River District. Again in 1930, they are listed in the East River Magisterial District. However, I cannot find them in 1920. I have searched the on-line indexes with no success. Does anyone have any information on what happened to this family in 1920?
