His first wife died several years ago, and in 1911 he married his second wife, Mrs Haley, a widow of Martinsburg, who survives him.  The surviving children, all of the first marriage are:  Mrs M Schaidt, of this city; Mrs Gertrude Looms, of Buffalo NY; Mr James Durrett, of Russell KY; Messrs James C, Roy P, Alfred G and Miss Annie Durrett at home.  The funeral arrangement have not been made.  Mr Durrett left his home here Thurs morning for duty at 10:50.  He took a train westward to Grafton and was on his home run when killed. –Cumb News July 20, 1912
