Looking for info on my g/gps Rev. Luther Testerman and 2nd wife Vertie Jones, both lived in Ashe County, NC. I do know that my g/gf was the oldest of 21 children (combo of two marriages). Luther and his first wife, name unknown, (who died either during childbirth or some time after giving birth) had five children, Ethel, Lydie, Stella, Lillard and another daughter.
Luther then married Vertie Jones (9/10/1899 - 2/14/1998) who may have been the younger sister of first wife. They had eight children: Ruby, Ruth (my grandmother), Sam, Virginia, Mildred, Ella Mae, Ray and Ralph. Luther was b. 1879 or 1880 and died November 1953.

Also looking for info on g/gm Ellen Testerman who married Wiley Eldreth. Have info on Eldreth family, but cannot find anything on her. Do know that she is about 5th cousin to my grandmother Ruth Testerman Eldreth. She may have been born in TN, when she was a child, her father and younger sister were killed in a house fire. Do not know about her mother or possilbe other siblings.

Hi,
I think Luther Testerman was my great grandfather. My grandfather was his son, Avery Testerman.

Avery Testerman was Luther Testerman's younger brother. Avery first married Maggie Jones and then after her death, married her twin sister Minnie. Both Maggie and Minnie were sisters to Vertie Jones (my g/grandmother)who was married to Luther.
