    Notes 
    • Numerous errors exist within the 1920 census. Per FamilySearch™ West Virginia Births 1853-1930, Genealogical Society of Utah (GSU), records exist to reflect that twins were born on 26 Sep 1914, named Robert Edward Robey and James Robert Robey. The ages of both during the 1920 are not indicative of being twins. There is a probability that one twin later died and the subsequent birth of a son resulted in the parents using the same given name. However, no record of the death of Robert Edward Robey was found on FamilySearch™. [6]
