In Reply to: Purkey family of WV info by Larry Allen of 311

Hi Larry,

My mother is Roma Gwinn Chambers, the daughter of Mary Elizabeth Chambers (formerly Mary Elizabeth Perkey) and Robert Luther Chambers. Mary Perkey died after giving birth to my mom.

My mom's grandfather was John Perkey of WVa (McDowell County) who was married to Maggie Music. They both came to WVa from Kentucky. Any connection? I'm trying to find information on both John Perkey and Maggie Music from West Virginia in the early 1900s. So far, I found a death certificate on file from the WVA Historical Arts society dated 1931 for Mary Elizabeth Chambers. I also found a John "Benton" Perkey's death certificate in West Virginia (another county) who died approximately 74 years old on Feb 24, 1970.

I would appreciate any information on my greatgrandfather if known. Both John and Mary were originally from Kentucky.

Thank you.
