1 *NOTE: Peter LYON was the son of Noah LYON. He moved from Aleppo, Greene, PA to Curtis District, Roane, WV in 1872. He had four known children born in Aleppo with his first wife, Eliza McGLUMPHY, who died on 8 June 1857, and then married Elizabeth Malinda KERN and had nine more children. After the 1880 census of Roane Co, WV Elizabeth LYON, Peter's wife disappears. I assume she died as she isn't mentioned in a deed or any of the Estate Settlement.

A Mother of Pioneers Dead
Mrs. William Vineyard
Aunt Sallie Vineyard, a pioneer mother, grand-mother and citizen of near Looneyville, is no more. Death called her away Sunday, July 2nd, 1911.
She was born in [Bouetourt] county, Virginia in 1817; came to Roane county, West Virginia, then Kanawha with the family in 1837; married Wm. Vineyard in 1840. In a short time, probably the same year located on a piece of land about two miles south of Looneyville, here she resided until her death, a period of almost three quarters of a century, (seventy-one years.)
Her father, Robert Looney, was a native of Virginia, born in [Bouetourt] county about the year 1787. His father was also a native of Virginia as were the Looney antecedents for centuries. Originally the family came from England.
On the mother's side "Aunt Sallie" descended from the New Amsterdam Dutch. From that side of the house she inherited an even genial temper and an industrious, frugal disposition.
To her and her husband were born eight children, four boys and four girls.
Robert L. served three years in the Confederate Army (1862 to 65.) From an injury in the head he lost his mind and died in the Weston Hospital for insane some years ago. J. Brad, Presley and Peter C. are living on and near the old homestead. The last named is the oldest teacher in point of service in Roane County having taught some forty years. He was elected Superintendent of Schools in 1870 for the county and served one term. Of the girls all are dead excepting Roxie (Mrs. G. W. Groves.)
The funeral of Aunt Sallie Vineyard took place Monday, July 8, 1911, at the home of her son Bradley at the old homestead, conducted by the Rev. Herbert Smith, Baptist to which church she adhered and interment was made at the home cemetery.
So lived, so passed away a reminder of almost a century ago. The good old fashioned mother of our county in its infancy; thus was rudely snapped a link that bound the past with the present. Grandmother to some, Aunt to all, her days [fully] matured, end a bright hope of bliss beyond the grave and beyond this life. A Friend.

George L. Argabrite
Another veteran of the Civil War, one who wore the blue, was called home the past week. George L. Argabrite of Liverpool, Jackson Co., passed away Saturday, March 18, 1916. Mr. Argabrite was nearing the age of 87 years and death was incident to old age. He was formerly a resident of this county, but moved to the edge of Jackson Co. several years ago where he had resided since.
The deceased was born in Monroe Co., but came to Roane Co. early in life and settled in the Curtis District. He enlisted in the army and served throughout its entirety in Co. F, 11th Reg., having been present at the surrender of the Confederacy. Following the close of the war, he came home and was united in marriage with Mrs. Emily Ingraham, who survives. Surviving their union are Mrs. Dempsey Parsons, Spencer; Mrs. John Roberts, Rt. 1; Mrs. E. E. Ball, Reedy; W. L. Argabrite, Spencer; and R. C. Argabrite, Liverpool.
Mr. Argabrite was a faithful member of the Methodist-Episcopal church for many years. He was highly regarded for his sincerity and honesty and was well-loved by all who knew him.

The remains were laid to rest Sunday. (Mt. Zion Church Cemetery)

In The History of Roane County Departs ---
Rev. Jonathan Smith is No More
One of the most distinguished figures in Roane county's history, Rev. Jonathan Smith, departed this life at his home in Clendenin, W.VA from complications due to age.
Rev. Smith was born August 8th, 1829 and was nearly 84 years old at the time of his death which occured May 27th, 1913 at 3 o'clock.
He was married February 7th, 1851 to Lyda [Lydia] Stump who survives him. He joined the Baptist Church on the second Sunday of October, 1850 and preached his first sermon in August, 1851. His last sermon was delivered at the Clendenin Baptist Church April 6th, 1913 and he had been preaching almost continuously from the time of his first public appearance 62 years ago. Rev. Smith was a familiar figure in Masonic Circles. He joined that order at Ripley, W.VA and at the time of his death was a member of the Clendenin Lodge A. F.and A. M. No. 126.
To Rev. and Mrs. Smith were born nine children of whom five are still living. Among them are Hon. Henry A. Smith of Parkersburg, who was at one time Circuit Clerk of Roane County and Mayor of the city of Spencer, Mrs. John M. Dye, now living at Hammack, Mrs. W. A. Trout, now living at Clendenin, Bud Smith and another whom we are not able to locate.
Rev. Smith belonged to that fast disappearing class of men who have seen the state brought from savagery to civilization and there have been very few men in this section who have had great influence in shaping the past 60 years of its history. As a preacher he was powerful. He has preached to practically all the people of Roane County and the number of men who are now 60 and 70 years of age that heard their first sermon from him is large.
Rev. Smith was for many years pastor of the Spencer Baptist Church and has kept in touch with the congregation for almost his entire life. Most of his life has been spent in Roane County but he moved to Clendenin a few years ago and has continued his work there and at Clay.

The remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground, but the spirit still lives in the land of the blest and the "memory of a good man abides forever".

Well Known Citizen of This City Dies Saturday
While he was on his way to dinner Saturday, after having spent the morning at his work in the Lake Harness Shop Mr. J. W. Rhodes, [an] aged and respected citizen of our city, was stricken with paralysis on the bridge near the depot. He sank to the floor of the bridge, unconscious, never regained his faculties and died the same evening at 9:15 o'clock. His death came as a most terrible shock to his family. He had been enjoying his usual good health until the moment he was stricken.
Mr. Rhodes was born in Jackson County January 13, 1846 and was more than 67 years old. He resided in the county of his birth until February 13, 1894 when he moved to this city where he has since lived. Mr. Rhodes was married in 1875 to Mary Allen who preceded him to another world many years ago. To their union was born five children all of whom survive their parents. They are: Dayton, Dennis, Ferd and Emmit sons and a daughter Eva. All of the children live in this city and they are numbered among the best young men and women of our town.
Mr. Rhodes is chiefly noted for his honest industry and for his devotion to his church. He joined the Methodist Protestant Church in 1864 and remained a consistant and influential member of that organization until the end. The loss of a member of such sincerity of purpose will be keenly felt by the local church where he has attended worship for so many years.
Rev. Barnes, Pastor of his church, conducted the funeral at the church and interment took place in the town cemetery on Monday afternoon.
