I am looking for information about a Mrs. D. E. Terhune, who lived at 1212 Washington Street, Charleston, West Virginia in 1923.

She is listed as the aunt of my great uncle, Burton Kersey, who died in 1923 at age 22 of an accidental drowning. Burton and his sister (my grandmother) Viola Kersey Kelley, were orphans, and little is known about their parents, a George Kersey and Rosanna Lovejoy, both from Kanawha County, W. Va.

We believe that Mrs. Terhune was the sister of either George Kersey or Rosanna Lovejoy. That would make her my great, great aunt.

Mrs. Terhune is listed in the Charleston Daily Mail newspaper of June 21, 1923 as the aunt of Burton Kersey.
If you have information about D. E. Terhune and his wife, and their descendents, I would very much appreciate hearing from you. Thank you, Susan Kelley
