      Generation No. 1

      1. Phoebe Jane3 Huffman (Laban2, Christian1) was born May 1848 in Pendleton Co. VA/WV1. She married (1) Columbus P. Waybright December 07, 1865 in Laban Huffman's, Randolph Co. WV2, son of Daniel Waybright and Martha Mullenax. He was born about 1843. She married (2) Abraham W. Mallow about 1887, son of Michael Mallow and Mary Wise. He was born about 1839, and died Bet. 1891 - 1900.

      Notes for Phoebe Jane Huffman:
      1880 census Randolph Co. WV, Dry Fork: Waybright, Phoebe 34 servant in home of Sampson & Elizabeth Snider.
      1900 census same: Mallow, Phebe b. May 1848, wid., 10 children, 6 living, 3 at home, Rosa B. b. June 1888, Lena C. b. March 1891; Judy, Florence b. Oct 1876, married, 0/0 children; Viva, niece, b. June 1898. [Viva was Florence's daughter, as shown by her birth record]

      Phoebe reported 10 children, 6 living in 1900 but only a possible seven can be accounted for and only five known to be alive in 1900. The unnamed daughter born 1871 would complete the account, if she survived. There was a 9-year-old Carrietta Waybright back in Pendleton Co. living with Jane Waybright, relationship not stated. Jane's late husband, Jesse, was Columbus' uncle, but whether Phoebe's daughter would be living with that distant a relation is unknown.

      Phoebe apparently remarried to Abraham W. Mallow, but no marriage record found. Abraham Mallow was living very near Phoebe and the Sniders in 1880.

      Notes for Columbus P. Waybright:
      Is he the Columbus P. Waybright who died Oct. 20 1878 and buried in Greenwood Cemetery, Greenwood Co. KS? If daughter Florence was born in Kansas, as given in 1910 census, perhaps the family went to Kansas in the 1870s where Columbus died and Phoebe and the children returned to West Virginia. The infant (1877) and L. K. Waybright (1879) in Greenwood cemetery may be their children?

      Marriage Notes for Phoebe Huffman and Columbus Waybright:
      Marriage recorded in Randolph Co. but took place at Laban Huffman's, who were not known to live in Randolph.
      There is a death record for an unnamed male Aug 12 1867 s/o Columbus & P.J. Waybright. They lost a child the year before, and Mary was born in June 1867 so there is no real accounting for this child other than a glitch in the records. Or, if the death was supposed to be in 1868, the child would fit in that year.

      1870 census Pendleton Co. WV: Waybright, Columbus 25, Phebe J. 21, Mary D. 3, Martha J. 11/12 born August. Next door to Laban Huffman's.

      Phoebe's sister Ann Rebecca and husband Abraham Smith had two nieces living with them in 1880 census Randolph Co., Bella 13 and Laura 6. They must be children of Columbus & Phoebe but Bella must be same as Mary Della, and Laura must be same as Florence. Living very near the Abraham Smith's that year were his parents and brother, James K. Smith, and James K. married 14 year-old Mary D. Waybright in 1881.

      Notes for Abraham W. Mallow:
      1880 census Randolph Co. WV, Dry Fork: Mallow, Abraham W. 40, wid., Sarah 36 sister, and children George Amos 9, Rebecca Virginia 7, Mary Susan 6, Charles Edmond 5. [Charles E. married Mary Della Smith’s daughter and the others married Smith relations]

      Notes for Martha Jane Waybright:
      I have seen dates of Aug 17 1869 - March 5 1952 online but no verification.

      19i.Phoebe Katherine5 Summerfield, born 1887. She married Caleb White; born Aft. 1880.
      20ii.Floda Alice Summerfield, born 1893.
      21iii.Harrison Goffe Summerfield, born 1888.
      22iv.Alfred Stelman Summerfield, born 1895.
      23v.Andrew Summerfield, born 1897.
      24vi.Howard Earl Summerfield, born 1898.
      25vii.Carrie Mabel Summerfield, born 1902.
      26viii.Ruth Elaine Summerfield, born 1908.



      6. Florence Mary4 Waybright (Phoebe Jane3 Huffman, Laban2, Christian1) was born October 1876 in Randolph Co. WV, or Kansas37,38. She married (1) Noah Harper Judy about December 05, 1896 in Randolph Co. WV39, son of Martin Judy and Christena Harper. He was born April 1855 in Pendleton Co. VA/WV40, and died 192241. She married (2) Abraham J. Speck Bef. 1910. He was born about 1870 in Pennsylvania.

      Notes for Florence Mary Waybright:
      Unknown why Florence claimed to not have children in 1900 census nor why her daughter Viva was called "niece" to head of household Phebe. Not sure about Florence’s birth year, could have been earlier, could have been later.

      Notes for Noah Harper Judy:
      1900 census Pendleton Co. WV, Circleville: Judy, N.H., Dr., born April 1855, divorced, living in household of mother Tena Judy.

      More About Noah Harper Judy:
      Burial: Martin Judy Cemetery, WV 28 at Nelson Gap, Pendleton Co. WV42

      Marriage Notes for Florence Waybright and Abraham Speck:
      1910 census Allegany Co. MD, Cumberland: Speck, Abraham J. 40, mar. once for 13 yrs., PA/Ger/Ger, Florence 29, mar. once for 13 yrs., 3 children, 3 living, KS/VA/WV, Viva 11 WV/PA/KS, Rudolph 9 WV/PA/KS, Regina 3 MD/PA/KS.

      Now Florence says she was born in Kansas! 1880 and 1900 census, and her 1st marriage record, gave no hint of that. This census record also completely covers up the fact that she was married before, and strongly implies the children all belong to Mr. Speck.

      Mary D. Smith's obituary (1937) lists surviving sisters, Mattie Summerfield and Florence Speck, thus tying the family together.

      Children of Florence Waybright and Noah Judy are:
