Notes for James Foley & Eliza (Family)
McDowell Co. WV marriage book #1, p. 141, records marriage on 7 Oct 1877 of James F. Trent, age 22, single, and Eliza Mullens, 18, single. The remaining columns (birth place, residence, and parents names) are obviously reversed for bride and groom. The husband columns say born Pike Co., Ky, residence McDowell Co., WV, parents William & Rachel, while the wife columns say born Logan Co., Va, residence McDowell Co., WV, parents Smith & Phebe.
1880 census of Boone Co., West Virginia, Washington district, enumerated 9 June, lists on p. 10 as family #98:
James F. Trent, 24, b. Va Va Va, farmer; Eliza, 17, wife, b. Va Va Va; Leander, 1, son, b. WV Va Va.
The next household is that of James’ brother Leander, with a son James F. age 1. Apparently they both had sons the same year, and named them after each other.
