Tuesday, July 14, 2015 Isaac Junior Conrad (1927-2002)

Isaac Junior Conrad was born on 20 October 1927 to Anna Lea Conrad in Napier, West Virginia. Anna was not married at the time of his birth and his father is not known. He was known as June most of his life. He lived with his mother and maternal grandparents in Salt Lick, West Virginia. His grandfather was a farmer. In 1930 his grandfather owned his own farm but in 1940 he was a farm laborer on a farm on Bennings Run Road in Salt Lick. He had been out of work for 18 weeks in 1939 and made $150. He was not working at the time the 1940 census was enumerated. I imagine the Depression was hard on the family.

On 20 September 1949 Isaac was drafted into the U.S. Army; he was discharged on 18 December 1952 and was a veteran of the Korean Conflict.

He married Barbara Jean Muir on 15 January 1953 in Sutton, West Virginia. They were both living in Orlando, West Virginia, and neither had been married previously. They had three known daughters together before they divorced. Isaac apparently never remarried.

He died on 11 November 2002 at the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg, West Virginia, His last Social Security benefit check was mailed to an address in Stouts Mill, West Virginia, an unincorporated place in Gilmer County. He was interred at the Little Kanawha Memorial Gardens in Heaters, West Virginia.
