Looking for family information regarding this couple. Wm. Rockwell was the son of Samuel and Martha Ellen Custer Rockwell of Martinsburg. Wm. wed Ella FILES and at the time of his premature death, in 1933, they were living on a "truck farm" near Martinsburg. Wm. Rockwell is buried at the New Norbonne Cem. (1933) There is an Ella Rockwell buried there in 1935. Is this Ella Files Rockwell?
Two children were born to this couple - William and Mary Ellen. At the time of their father's death Wm. was about 7 and Mary Ellen only about 6 mos.
I have reason to believe that William (age 7) may have been the foster child of a Noble E. Sheets and his wife Edith May Custer Sheets who is refered to in ea. of their obituaries.
The FILES family ran an ice business in Martinsburg before closing it prior to 1933 to relocate to Maryland.
Additional information would be wonderful regarding this family.
Thanks, Karen Nelson Hangsleben
