  • James W. Barclay of West Virginia

Posted by: Gayla Corley (ID *****7319) Date: December 01, 2009 at 19:10:07 of 1591

I am searching for James W. Barclay information of West Virginia. James W. married my great grandmother Leah Teter, daughter of Solomon and Mary Jane (Bland) Teter 6 Nov 1873 according to the marriage books of Pendleton County, West Virginia.

They are listed living in Circleville, Pendleton County, West Virginia in the census of 1880. My great grandmother is listed as Lair here instead of Leah. The child, Jasper L. Barkley is my grandfather. He always went by the last name Teter as he was born prior to her marriage. The name is spelled "Barkley" here, but in the marriage book it is spelled "Barclay."

Name Age James W. Barkley 29 Lair Barkley 31 Jasper L. Barkley 13 George Cecil Barkley 4 Mary C. Barkley 3 Emma J. Barkley 4M Martha Arbogast 16

I can find no record of when either of them died or where they lived. I do not have birthdates of their children, three listed here (George Cecil, Mary C. possibly Mary Carrie, Emma J, and Katie. The Martha Arbogast was a niece of Leah's in the census abbove.

In my grandfather Jasper L. Teter's obituary it states he had one half-brother and three half-sisters. No names listed.

Any information of birth dates, death dates, place of death, or place of burial would be appreciated. If there is information on James W. Barclay's parents I would be interestd in that information also. Gayla Corley
