I am searching for the date of death of Melcher/Melker HARSH, born abt. 1863 in Barbour Co., WV. and his wife, Martha J. PHILLIPS (b. abt. 1860). They were married in Randolph Co., WV on 26 Nov. 1882. They moved to Darke County, OH, but I don't know when that was. They were there before the Dayton Flood (1913). They were supposed to have had at least one son, named Lee. Melcher HARSH died sometime before 1920. He is supposed to be buried at the Palestine Cemetery. I do not when his wife died or where she was buried, and I would like that information. I would also like to learn the names of any children they had. Perhaps some are still living in Darke County. Any information that my fellow researchers can add will be much appreciated. Martha Jane PHILLIPS HARSH is the sister of my grandfather, Matthew L. Phillips (1879-1932). Matthew and his wife, Mary Bessie FITZWATER PHILLIPS, moved to Liberty Twp.,(Palestine), Darke County, in 1913 to farm. One of the main reasons they moved there was because Matthew's sister, Martha Jane, and her husband, Melcher/Melker lived there. According to one of my elderly aunts, Melcher died soon after Matthew PHILLIPS arrived and it was quite a blow to the family. My aunt remembers being left with a neighbor while her parents attended the funeral. My mother is Mary Ellen PHILLIPS (b. 1912 - living), daughter of Matthew and Mary Bessie PHILLIPS. They had 11 children, all of whom graduated from high school in Palestine, Ohio. Her siblings names are: Harry, Troy, Carl, Leo, Olive, Ruthmae, Beulah, Mabel, Ethel, and Esther. Olive married Fred ALEXANDER and still lives in Greenville. Mary Ellen PHILLIPS married Charles Bartlett WOLF. She attended Palestine High School and lives in Dayton, Ohio. If you have ties to the PHILLIPS or FITZWATER families in Tucker, Barbour or Randolph County in West Virginia, I have information to share with you. I have a user home page through Family Tree Maker.
