Thank you so much for your help. I'm not sure this is the one I'm looking for . Since there was no parents listed or any dates . I'm really interested in his step-mother or one of them Mary George Foster Campbell ( my grandmother) I don't know where she is buried . Again I thank you for taking the time to answer me . Regards Helen Litchford Kinsley Lynchburg , Va

Hi Helen,
try this link in the rootsweb mentions a
Roscoe Guy Perdue
may not be who you're looking for, but there is a John William Perdue, with wife Sarah Foster Perdue. Franklin County is next to Roanoke County, where the newspaper used to be called the "Times and World News".
Hope this helps some.
