Nothing is known about William and Laura's life together and whether there were children.

William died in a mining accident crushed by falling rocks. He is buried in Whitetop Cemetery near Austinville.

Francis was called Fannie. She was from Roanoke. The family was in McDowell County, West Virginia for the 1930 Federal Census. She married William Hanks after William's death. He was nice to William's children who remember Mr. Hanks with affection.

William and Fannie's children are:
1. Catherine Elizabeth (21-Feb-1917 to 27-Mar-1991) who married William W. Withheld,
2. Margaret Lucille who married Albert Withheld,
3. Ira Maynard (6-Jun-1924), and
4. Unnamed baby buried in Whitetop Cemetery.

Additional information about this family would be appreciated.
