From “Virginia and Virginians, 1606-1888,” published by H.H. Hardesty, we find this entry for Major William Straton, who resided at Logan Court House in Logan County, West Virginia:
Was born in Logan county, W.Va., April 14, 1821. His wife, Mary A. Perry, was born in the same county June 1, 1831, and there they were united in marriage Sept. 13, 1849. Of the offspring of this marriage the following is the record: David, born Jan. 4, 1853, married, died May 15, 1890; Victoria, born Dec. 23, 1857, died April 23, 1858; Minnie, born June 12, 1859, married, died Sept. 17, 1886; Allen B., born June 7, 1855, married; Vicie, born Dec. 9, 1861, married; Mary B., born Mar. 20, 1864, married. The subject of this sketch was elected clerk of the county court in March, 1845, and was elected clerk of circuit court in Logan county in 1849, and served until 1852; was re-elected county and circuit clerk in 1852 and 1858, which office he retained until 1865. In the civil war he supported the Southern cause, in which he volunteered in 1861, and was commissioned major of the 34th Va. V.C.; In this regiment he served nobly until the close of the struggle. At the battle of Beech Creek, Logan county, W.Va., Aug. 7, 1862, he was severely wounded in the arm and breast; the last was almost a mortal wound, but recovering he again entered the Confederate army, and was one of its most gallant and efficient officers. When the war ended he came back to his family, and in his native county since has held many offices of trust and honor, esteemed and respected by all who have ever known him. His father, Joseph Straton, was born in Ireland March 4, 1794, emigrated to America in 1800, and died in Logan county, W.Va., Jan. 3, 1846; his wife, Polly Henderson, mother of Major William Straton, was born in Monroe county, Va., March 27, 1803, and died in Sequin, Guadalupe county, Texas, April 22, 1890. Major William Straton now practices law at Logan Court House, W.Va.; he was a member of the House of Delegates from 1871 to 1877.
