William Augustus Harless and Violet Wetherholt

William Augustus Harless son of William Hamilton and Anna Pauley Harless, was born 22 Mar 1911 in Lincoln Co., WV and died 28 Mar 1999 Putnam General Hospital, Putnam Co., WV. He married 3 Jul 1935 Huntington, Cabell Co., WV Violet M. Wetherholt, daughter of Steven O and Lydia Gothard Wetherholt. She was born 7 Oct 1906 Cabell Co., WV and died 18 Dec 1982 Huntington, Cabell Co., WV.

William and Violet were my maternal grandparents. William went by the nickname "Gus". He worked at a factory that made trains or train parts in Huntington, WV called American Car. They lived on Fudge's Creek, Ona, Cabell Co., WV. Early in their marriage, they owned a farm in Meigs Co., OH. My Mom said they gave it up due to Pappaw's health problems.

Gus was also a Church of Christ minister.
