I am searching for my gggrandmother. She married my gggrandfather, Ephraim Calhoun in Pendelton co. W VA in 1887. The record states that she was a 23 year old widow. It doesn't say what her maiden name was so I am hitting a brick wall with her. Can anyone help? She must have died around 1900 because Ephraim remarried after that. Other marriages for Ephraim Calhoun are ,Louise Hoover,Prudy Eddy and ? Nelson. Ephraim's father was also Ephraim, his grandfather was Eli Calhoun from Pendleton co. W VA. Thanks for any help from anyone

Have you searched for the marraige between Mary and Mr. Propst? Since she was a 23 year-old widow, she couldn't have married him more than 10 years befor 1887. Also, you may find a search for Propst deaths and probates in the years preceeding 1887 useful. Of course, you should search for her death in 1898-1900 also. Sometimes the death record has information about the parents, although it is often not trustworthy.

I searched the 1880 Census at http://www.familysearch.org for Propst in Pendleton Co. VA, but there are LOTS of them! Is Mary with Ephraim in the 1900 Census? That might help you pin down the time of her death more closely.
