Notes for V
ELMA BEATRICE LAKE:
Velma has supplied a lot of the Lake family information in this book. Her interest and enthusiasm have spurred me to dig deeper for more information (the author). Poker was the son of Edward B. (Beany) and Lula Jane Sanders Conner. He was born at Coffman, Taylor County, West Virginia (near Grafton).

Poker's first job was delivering groceries for the Kingmont Country Store. He drove truck for Kenneth Haught coal mines, worked for Osborn Construction during the paving of the Levels Road, drove truck for Marion Storage to New Jersey, Illinois and Indiana and worked on the R. H. Dollison farm at Levels. He also worked at the Fairmont Box Shop for 13 years. He retired in 1988 from Martinka mines after 15 years service.

Velma and Poker live at Powell Road, near Fairmont, West Virginia.
