... starts with the Thomas Family - Children of Sarah Amanda Thomas

I found further information on some of Sarah Amanda Thomas and Edward Preston Sanford's children in Letha's binder, enough to separate it into its own post.

Henry Sanford, born 13 Feb 1891 in Sewell Valley, Greenbrier County, WV, he died on 3 Feb 1969 in an Oak Hill hospital. He is buried in the Sewell Valley Baptist Church Cemetery.

Henry was married to Anna Rose Hunter on 16 Jun 1926. They had 5 known children:

      1. Gloria E, b abt 1927 and d 30 Apr 1936 of Uremia and Acute Nephritis, she is buried at Sewell Valley Baptist Church Cemetery.
      2. Neville Edgar, b 13 Oct 1929 d 29 May 1984 Humana Hospital in Greenbrier County, WV. He is entombed at the Wallace Memorial Mausoleum at Clintonville. Neville married Irma Haynes and, according to his obituary, had 2 daughters: Kathy Sue (Clark) and Ronda Ann (Neal). Neville was the mayor of Rainelle from 1973-1978 and a 30-year employee of the town. Served as constable of the First Baptist Church of Rainelle from 1973-1977. 
      3. Eleanor married a Skidmore
      4. Dorothea married a Grennan
      5. Gayle married a Kashola   

Maggie Sanford, b 21 Apr 1902 d 18 Aug 1983. Maggie married McKinley Osborne on 29 May 1918 at the home of the officiant Abraham Frantz in Greenbrier, WV, and according to an article Letha has in her binder ("Osborne Family Tree Completed" written by Ludella Seabolt in an undated, undisclosed newpaper):  

 "McKinley marred Marrie (Maggie) Sanford and to them were born four children, Hobert, Margie, Melvin and Devlin. Melvin and his wife, Charlotte Tuck Osborne are the parents of Mr. Jerry Osborne of Flint's Hardware in Rainelle, for whom we have been doing this Osborne family history. Jerry is marrie dto the former Patty Cox and they have two children, Regina Kay and Brian Lee. Jerry furnished the picture of his grandparents."

What a handsome couple!
