Piney Mae Venters 1899 1918


Jesse Wright was married four time, 1st to Elizabeth Moore, 2nd to Mary Brummitt, 3rd to Maggie Perdue and last to Nickotie Vanover. After he and Mary divorced, she married at least two more times. Her second marriage was to John Venters, the son of James & Emeline Slone Venters. John had been married before, too. Mary raised and her step children stayed with her throughout her other marriages. John and Mary had one child of their own: Piney Mae Venters. She was born April 14, 1899. She had a child Gurna Charles Venters on February 26, 1918. She died on March 3, 1918. I found Gurna Charles in census records with a Potter family in West Virginia. He did end up living in Neon. He married a Hazel Hall. He died on June 23, 1946 of a heart blockage. His birth certificate listed his name as Gernia C. Wright parents Martin Wright and Piney Mae Venters. His death certificate lists Piney Mae as his mother and Martin Wright as his father. The informant was Roy Venters who was one of John Venter's children who stayed with Mary Brummit. Gurna Charles is buried in Neon.
