Descendants of Alfred Games


GAMES, ALFRED - One of the pioneer residents of Meade District in Marshall Co, WV, died at his home on Games Ridge Tuesday evening after an extended illness. Mr. Games was one of the oldest residents of that section of the county and was one of the most widely known men in the community. He was 89 years of age last January. He came to Bowman Ridge when quite young and lived the greater part of his life there, acquiring a good sized estate. Mr. Games was a veteran of the Civil War and was a member of the J. Elmore Evans Post of the G.A.R. of Glen Easton, WV. Until a few years ago when ill health forced him to retire from active life, he was a faithful attendant at the Memorial Day exercises of his Post. He was always expected to make an address at the memorial services, and many of the younger people, as well as the older ones will remember his patriotic and inspiring talks upon these occasions. Politically, Mr. Games was a staunch Republican. Besides his wife, who before her marriage to Mr. Games was Miss Lizzie Ogle of this city, Mr. Games is survived by one daughter & five sons. The daughter is Mrs. H. M. Cecil of Nixon Ridge. The sons are: A. D. Games, postmaster at Rosby's Rock; G. B. Games of Bowman Ridge; Frank Games of Rosby's Rock; Henry Games of Fanlight, Wetzel Co, WV; and Lynch Games, who lives in Missouri. One daughter, Mrs. Angeline Wayt, and one son, Daniel Games, are deceased. The funeral of Mr. Games will be held at the Bowman Ridge M. E. Church of which Mr. Games was a faithful member and an official for many years. The body wi be interred in the cemetery at that church. Funeral services will be in charge of Rev. A. J. Curtis and Rev. H. O. Teagarden.
