Hello. I am the great granddaughter of N.H. Atwood. His son Talmedge is my grandfather. I know that Nathan is buried in Sarah Ann, WV. in the Hatfield grave site. I haven't visited yet but I would love too soon.
I didn't know Mabel was shot in a movie theater. Does anyone have context to that they would be willing to share with me? My uncle told me that Nathan was drunk messing around on some sort of handcart and passed out and was hit and killed. Obviously that was just something that he had heard.
i was also told that N.H. Atwood's first wife Sarah Wagoner sent a letter to R.J. Reynolds to help her get down to NC because they didn't have the funds to do it and R.J. Reynolds sent a slave of his up and brought Sarah and all of her children down to NC.
