The state of WV was one where some places, only had Midwives, who a lot of times did not bother recording the birth. if they were from back in the Mountian Hollers, a lot of Midwives, were related to the woman giving birth, and at that time, it was through the grape vine, that gave the Birth, information. so everyone knew, and never needed recording. which makes it hard on the one doing the research. My mother had no birth record, her grand mother was a midwife, was not reg.
