    Notes 
    • May be in 1880 census as "Ava E.", a son, age 7, with father.

      Birth record is indexed as Wanlop at WV Museum of Culture & Archives website.

      Courthouse reports that marriage bond does not contain any parentage or additional info.

      In 1894, her sister Maggie Heavener registered the birth of a child just a few entries away from Rosa's daughter Maggie's registration.

      It looks like she & Charles W. Slaven must have divorced, as he is living in the 1910 census in Green Bank, Pocahontas co, age 45, said to be widowed, with his mother still living with him, and also a niece Lola B. Gragg or Grogg and her infant Thelma L.
