Notation from Don Norman's Family Files, the Starcher page...
Henry Starcher, a son of Adam and Phoebe (Coger) Starcher, was born in what is now Calhoun County WV about 1839 and died in 1915. Henry is listed in the 1870 Calhoun County WV census as "Henry Jr.". This was apparently local usage to distinguish him from his Uncle Henry. Henry married Sarah Elizabeth Slider in Calhoun County VA (WV) October 20, 1859. Sarah was born in Tyler County VA about 1846 and died in Calhoun County about 1866.
Henry married a cousin, Matilda Greathouse, in Calhoun County June 20, 1867. Matilda, a daughter of Solomon and Sarah “Sally” (Starcher) Greathouse, was born in VA about 1844. This marriage apparently ended some time about 1886. Henry married Nora Lanham about 1887. Nora was born in VA in March 1863.
Calhoun County marriage records state that Matilda Starcher, 45 year old, widow, married 26 year old Timothy McCune May 26, 1889.
