Notes on Jacob P. Starcher
Jacob P. Starcher, a son of William Brannon "Billy" Starcher and his second wife, Caroline Barnhouse, was born April 1877.
He died March 10, 1939 in Greenbrier County WV.
An image of his death certificate is available AT THIS LINK.
The reader is cautioned not to confuse this Jacob P. Starcher with another Jacob P. Starcher, the son of Adam and Phoebe Cogar Starcher.
He married Effie Virginia Marks on 15 Oct 1899. Effie was born March 1886 and died March 10, 1939.
The 1900 Federal census available at ancestry.com shows Jacob P. and Effie living in Smithfield District, Roane County WV.
The 1910 Federal census shows Jacob P. living in Hocking Co Ohio with his wife and children Flossie (presumably Margaret Florence), Edith, and Kenneth.
His WWI draft registration dated 9/12/15 lists his residence at Murray City, Hocking Co Ohio, employed as a miner.
The 1920 Federal census is extremely difficult to read, but does appear to show Jacob P. living in Athens Co Ohio with his family, employed as a miner. The additional family names, difficult to decipher, are consistant with those given by other family members, namely Ernest, Mary, Margaret, and Wilbert.
