52 Ancestors: #2 Fred Rothwell DEMPSEY 1899-1975

This is my second post in the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge. I’m still experimenting with how I want these write-ups to look. This time, I tried working with a timeline generated by my genealogy program Ancestral Quest 14.

#2 Fred Rothwell DEMPSEY 1899-1975

Granddaddy and Daddy ca. 1973

Fred Rothwell DEMPSEY was born 30 October 1899 in Victor, Fayette County, West Virginia, to William Henderson DEMPSEY, a coal miner, and his wife Laura Belle INGRAM.1 The Register of Births for Fayette County lists his mother Laura as the informant.2 Fred was their 5th son and 7th child. He applied for his Social Security Number before 1951.3 This was most likely when he applied for his delayed certificate of birth which was signed by his older brother Ernest R. DEMPSEY. On the certificate, his father was listed as 38 years old and his mother as 31 years old at the time of his birth. Two children born to the mother had died before Fred’s birth. These angels were his sisters Viola (1885-1887) and Pearl (1897-1898).

Delayed Certificate of Birth No. 1368

1900 –  Fred is enumerated for the first time on the United States Federal Census.4

1904 – birth of sister Hester Ethel (1904-2001).6
1907 – marriage of his oldest brother William W. “Willie” (1888-1915) to Mallie Lee GRAY.7
In 1910 we see Fred for the second time in a census:8

1910 – birth of brother Earl Stanley (1910-1968) after the census.9
1914 – Fred, who attended 8 years of school, most likely began working at around the age of 15. World War I began. His three older brothers married during the year:
Oscar Lawrence (1892-1940) md. Fannie Belle NOBLE10
Roy Lee (1894-1947) md. Liliane Madelene NUNNERY11
Ernest Rupert (1890-1955) md. Virginia Lenora “Lee” WILLS.12

1915 – Fred’s oldest brother Willie was killed on 5 October 1915.13 He had gone into a small mine at his home, accompanied by his wife and little son Gordon, to mine some coal for home use. While his wife was watching him a heavy fall of slate came in on him, killing him instantly.

1918 – On 12 September 1918, Fred filled out his World War I Draft Registration Card. He was 18 years old, of medium height, medium weight, with black hair and black eyes. His middle name was written correctly (Rothwell) on the card but then corrected to match the spelling he used in his signature. He was working as a miner for Edward MORRIS in Jodie.14 Per the 1920 census Edward L. MORRIS was the representative of Gauley Mountain Coal. At about the same time in 1917-1918, Fred’s brothers Roy and Ernest were working for the Signal Knob Coal Co. in Ansted and Oscar was working at Pemberton C & C Co. in Affinity. World War I ends.

1920 – In 1920 Fred was enumerated twice on the census. Enumerated on 13-14 January, he was living at home in Victor with his parents and three youngest siblings: Clyde, Hester, and Earl.15

Enumerated on the 22 January, he was living in Jodie, in the same county, in his brother Roy’s household. Fred may have just moved in with his brother’s family or he could have been living at both places, spending working days in Jodie and free time at home.16
