In 1935, my Uncle, John Beane, Jr., was working with the C.C.C. camp in Alvon, West Virginia. [Greenbrier County]. On 4 June his grandmother, Annie Level Burdette, died. [John's mother, Ada had died in 1929, a few days after giving birth to her last child, Jack. So John felt especially close to his grandmother.]
Above is the pass that John received in order to return to his home and be with his family at the time of their mourning.
Annie Level was born 08 Jan 1866 in West Virginia to William Francis Level and Sarah Ruth Gibson. She married Hugh Burdette [1860-1944] in 1881. The couple went on to have at least 12 children:
Ada L. [John's mother] [1883-1929]
Sarah Ozella [1885-1966]
Susan M. [1889-1963]
Anderson L. [1891-1959]
Isabelle M. [1893-1970]
Charles C. [1895-1972]
George W. [1898-1983]
Fred H. [1902-1925]
Harry C. [1907 - 1972]
Ada's son John was born 08 Oct 1908 in Waiteville, Monroe, WV. He died in Jul 1972 in WV. He is buried in the New Zion union Church Cemetery in Waiteville. He married Mildred Tolley, and the couple had 4 children: Betty, Johnny, Cathy & Darrell.
