Canterburys in WV
Posted by: Harvey Benton Harrison, III Date: August 05, 2001 at 23:34:17
  of 721

I hope there is someone out there that can shed some light on these Canterburys. I am searching for information on the siblings and their descendants of Elmer Brown Canterbury. I am also searching for information on his ancestry. All I know is that his father was a one Henry Lewis Canterbury. Unfortunately, I have no dates or any other information on Henry Lewis. Elmer Brown Canterbury was born 12 February 1901, and died 26 December 1981. He married Gertrude Caroline Ratliff 12 August 1948, daughter of John Ratliff and Hannah. She was born 23 October 1909, and died 1997.

Elmer's family was lived, I believe, somewhere around Princeton, Mercer County, WV. Any information regarding his wife's family would be appreciated too. Here is what I have on his family.
