I am looking for any information on a Paris Pelphrey from Morgan Co. KY. Pairs married Mary Ellen Hamilton 1892-1922 of Morgan Co. KY October 5 1909. She is buried in the Benjamin Hamilton Cem. Morgan Co. KY. I have no dates or info on this Paris Pelphrey except to say that he died and is buried in the area of the New River Gorge in Raleigh Co. WV.
He was killed in a train accident and was a coal miner and boxer. Any information that anyone has on this man would be greatly appreciated
