Biographical or historical data
Joseph Holt Schofield (d. 1954) married first Nettie Louise Elkins. The couple resided in Caretta, West Virginia. She died at Bluefield Sanitarium on 5 February 1922 due to complications from childbirth. The child, Bryce Pinkney Schofield (1922-2006) seems to have lived for at least part of his childhood with an uncle, Norman S. Schofield (b. 1886) of Culpeper, Virginia. His father married a second time, to Katherine Wisecarver (d. 1961), and settled in Savannah, Georgia. Bryce Schofield, who at one point worked on the Manhattan Project, eventually settled in Richmond, Virginia, where he worked for the Virginia Department of Health, Bureau of Occupational Health. Other family members represented in this collection include Dr. Frances Armstead Schofield (1907-1976).
