  • Notes 

    • Mrs. Ollie KERWOOD, daughter of of Mr. and Mrs. D. D. RHODES, was born near Ripley, January 27, 1863. She was married in 1887 to J. R. KERWOOD. To them was born a son, Clyde, who departed this life January 31, 1912. (Mountaineer, 15 Nov 1912)

      At one o'clock Sunday afternoon Mr. John RHODES died of tuberculosis at his home near Huntington, WV. At midnight that night, Mrs. Ollie (RHODES) KERWOOD, wife of Mr. J. R. KERWOOD, and a cousin of Mr. RHODES, passed away, a victim of the same disease. Mr. RHODES was a former resident of this county and was an industrious and prosperous farmer. He moved to Cabell County about 18 months ago. Since that time his health has gradually failed.
      He was a son of Benjamin RHODES, deceased. Mrs. KERWOOD lingered for several months. Her demise was perhaps hastened by close confinement in nursing her son, Clyde KERWOOD, who was also a victim of the white plague. Mrs. Ollie KERWOOD, daughter of of Mr. and Mrs. D. D. RHODES, was born near Ripley, January 27, 1863. She was married in 1887 to J. R. KERWOOD. To them was born a son, Clyde, who departed this life January 31, 1912.
      The remains of Mr. RHODES accompanied by the widow, daughter, Miss Blanche RHODES, and brother-in-law, James PARSONS, were taken to Oak Hill Church Tuesday, where a double funeral service was conducted by Rev. RYMER and Rev. MARTIN. Mr. RHODES was 63 years of age. Mrs. KERWOOD was 49. She is survived by her husband and several brothers and sisters. The funeral was attended by a large crowd. (Mountaineer, 15 Nov 1912)
