    Notes 
    • Family History written in 1982 by Mary Binder (daughter of Elbert Luke Palmer)

      P.O Palmer and Mary Belle were divorced when their children were small. She took the two girls to Iaeger West Virginia. She remarried (Note: to James Burke). Someone murdered her in her home while her husband was away. A step daughter (Note: Probably not a stepdaughter, as James was too young to have a daughter old enough) was suspected, but no one was convicted.

      Mr. Palmer went to West Virginia and brought Annie and Hazel back to Raven to live with him. He then married Lucy Jane Cox. A Christian woman who raised the four children as her own. Beverly says he's a minister today because of the things his step mother taught him.

      Elbert married Hermie Letha Artrip, they had nine children. He was a coal miner in Buchanan Co, Va most of his live. Their early years of marriage they lived around Raven Va in Tazewell Co. Eight of their nine children were born there. In the 40's they bought a farm near Honaker, Va in Russell Co. I (Mary Binder) was born there. The last of their nine children. Mother was 38 and dad was 40 when I was born in 1946. Beverly married Nina McGhee they also had nine children. They lived around Raven until 1961 when they moved to Baltimore, Md. where they reside now. Bev's been a minister all his adult life. Now at 74 he still tapes sermons for the radio. His voice is strong and clear like that of a much younger man.

      Annie married Clarence McGhee, they had seven daughters. Annie died at 35 from asthma related illness.

      Hazel married Emory Burress they had two children Wanda and Vernon. Hazel died at age 25 from a ruptured appendix. Vernon was raised by his father. He now lives in Crystal River, FL. Wanda was raised by P.O Palmer and Lucy, She lives in Raven Va.
