Their journey took them through many states ultimately settling in Clendenin, WV where they raised their family. Later, Jennie met and married L.H.

They move to Weston, WV in their retirement to be near Stonewall Jackson Lake where they spent several happy years together enjoying fishing, sight-seeing and spending time in nature, often accompanied by their children, grandchildren and eventually great-grandchildren. Jennie worked for the State of WV retiring in 1990. She was preceded in death by husband, L.H. Taylor, son-in-law Bob Broadwater, and the father of her children, Charlie Grindstaff.
