I am searching for information on Hampton Harvey's wife. Her name was Birtie? or Bertie? or Byrdie? Mae Whitlock. Their son, Lionel, lived and is buried in Camp Creek. I have reason to believe she died at the same time as a young daughter named Ethel of Scarlet Fever. This would have been sometime in 1904. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

BURGESS, CARR, MELVIN, REED, WOODS -
Martha "Mattie" Melvin Reed (bc 1874, Mercer Co., WV; d 1934 Mercer Co., WV)
I am seeking any information concerning "Mattie", who was married in Mercer Co., WV in October, 1899 to Andrew Jackson "Jack" Reed (b June, 1868; Monroe Co., WV; dc 1908, possibly McDowell or Summers Co.,WV). This was Jack's second marriage. His first wife (Alice Woods; bc 1871, Summers Co., WV), bore him four children (Johnny, Jimmy, Nellie and Betty), and apparently died due to complications of childbirth in 1898. As for Mattie's marriage to Jack, she apparently had at least two children by him : Andrew (born between 1900 and 1905), and Della Ray Reed (b June 4, 1909, Wyoming Co., WV; d Feb 20, 1917, Springton, Mercer Co., WV).
As a side note, Mattie was apparently the daughter of Napolean Bonaparte Melvin (bc 1852; Mercer Co., WV) and Annie Carr (b July 25, 1857, Oakvale, WV; d Jan 2, 1934, Matoaka, Mercer Co.,WV; daughter of William Carr and Sallie Burgess).
Any information concerning Mattie (nee Melvin) Reed, or her adult family, would be most very much appreciated.
