McClain Printing Company Books

by William H. Rice

The 1774 Berkeley County Tithable List included in this publication has been virtually unknown to historians and genealogists in the past since it was safely tucked away in the James Wood Collection in the Handley Regional Library in Winchester, Virginia. It is the oldest known document of its kind in existence for a West Virginia county. A tithable list is the Colonial Period’s equivalent to a tax list. Paperback. 96 pages. Other books by this author are the Colonial Records of the Upper Potomac series, Elkins, WV, and Mortgage of America -- The End of U.S. Independence.

All Mountaineers Are Libertarians

ISBN 0-87012-867-1

by David Moran

This is a book about very special people – West Virginians.

The purpose of writing this book is not to convince you to vote for me for governor – although that would be nice – but rather to encourage you to expand your thoughts about the future of our state, especially as it is guided by current conventional political forces; and, to encourage you to re-evaluate your historical unconscious reactions to political issues and political presence, especially as you make your voting plans.

This is Your State – your voice is a powerful force in creating the future. You do not have to be limited by only a few or just two choices offered to you by politicians or bureaucrats. This is Your State and you have the right and the obligation to make it great, apart from the limited dictates of only two perspectives, two points of view, two political poles, the two entrenched political parties.

Think about it – our society and economy are based upon having multiple choices, not just one or two, and exercising those choices by our free will – why is politics the only place where there are only two choices. We are providing you with another new, enlightened and productive option.

The following pages present problems and solutions. They contain issues and recommendations for your consideration. These are problems and issues that are very familiar to us all, but they are also areas that are often painful for us to think about and issues that we would rather not have to dwell upon in our busy lives. But we do have to personally address them and develop our own individual and unique opinions. That is the nature of democracy. Paperback. 152 pages.

All Present, Unaccounted For

ISBN 0-87012-896-5

by Robert Flanagan

The war poetry began with the journal-keeping in 1964 Viet Nam, the same recorded memoirs that produced the trilogy. Many of the poems emerged in the 1970s—1980s as work produced for the MFA (Master’s in Fine Art: Creative Writing) at George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia, but took another 35 years to ferment into what the author felt was a body of work worthy of publication. Paperback. 126 pages. Other books by this author include Alternate Centres of Being, Bits and Pieces: The Middle Years, and Bits and Pieces: Windin' Down.

Appalachian Chains of Life and Love Poetic Musing

ISBN 0-87012-373-4

by David E. Tarr

Chains are connecting links that both unite and divide or protect and confine, often at the same time. The Appalachian chain of mountains has physically and socially done much the same. The hills and valleys have protected and sometimes restrained their people. Born in Appalachia, my family has been associated with the glass industry rather than coal. Therefore, Appalachia is not all mine shafts, floods and disasters -- at least not to me. Having lived and studied in several places across the country, I have found no greater latitude for the zest of living, loving or losing, than within the dignity and innate sophistication of Appalachians. These poems were written while living in the area and about such folk. David E. Tarr, author. Paperback. 80 pages.

Bedford County Virginia Militia 1774-1783

ISBN 0-87012-908-2

by Karen J. Dunn

After accumulating Bedford County, Virginia American Revolutionary War documents for many years it became clear if these documents were assembled into spreadsheets it would be easier to understand the people, militia, county government, and battles. These spreadsheets made it possible to follow the lives of soldiers and their families from colonial days to the end of the revolutionary war. Experienced colonial soldiers became officers of the revolutionary war and leaders of their communities.

Militia captains were active in the organization and administration of the county government. They held positions of County Lieutenant, Justice of the County Court, Sheriff, listed taxable property, and led militia companies into battle when called upon.

These positions were transferred from the colonial government to the independent government of the county after the Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

This is a book of spreadsheets. All names are in alphabetical order followed by the date of the event. Paperback. 172 pages. Other books by this author include John Jenkins -- American Revolutionary War Soldier, Just Butterflies, and Richard Nugen -- American Revolutionary War Soldier.

ISBN 0-87012-758-6

by Steve Bodkins

This narrative uncovers the exciting history that gave rise to the towns of Bemis, Glady, Flint, Montes, Woodrow, and Morribell and, eventually, their decline. Local cemetery, marriage, and census records covering periods from 1865 to the present make this book a genealogist’s guidebook into the past. Forty pages of biographies outline the lives of men and women who are the backbone of these communities, providing a crosssection of people who made up the towns. Completely indexed with the most important events, people and places identified. Nearly all information is verified with reputable sources which are identified in detailed endnotes. Three hundred pictures of the towns, people, schools, teachers, trains, mills, mines, bridges and government provide an excellent pictorial sampling of the area. Many of these pictures were uncovered during ten years of research and are presented for the first time in this book. The author is pleased to offer this narrative as his commitment to preserving the history of Bemis & Glady, its settlement by our ancestors, their industrial booms, and other important events. Hardbound. 616 pages. Another book by this author is Forgotten Towns....

Bits & Pieces: The Middle Years (ISBN 0-87012-906-6)

Bits & Pieces: The Middle Years

ISBN 0-87012-906-6

This collection is Book 3 of a four-book, on-going series by author/columnist Robert Flanagan to recreate and present a 6-year selection of his newspaper column “Bits & Pieces,” originally published weekly in the Hampshire Review, Romney, W.Va., over a 19-year period, September 1999 - June 2018.

A writer since youth, the author did not come to his advanced state by any route of convention. A long military career, followed by two corporate jobs, a stint of college teaching, with a durable marriage and family commitments, delayed educational aspirations, finishing his second post-graduate degree at age 46.

And his major work — “The ASA Trilogy,” three contiguous novels about a covert military intelligence world in Viet Nam and the Cold War — was not accomplished in the supportive atmosphere of agent reviews-publisher encouragement; “The End” was penned in a small hotel’s garden in Salzburg, Austria, in the late autumn dusk while on a 50th wedding anniversary gift journey, 43 years after the trilogy’s beginning with journals and notes in 1964 Viet Nam. Four more years remained before the third volume saw print.

The author lived/served in seven countries, traveled in 41 others; lived/served in 12 U.S. states, traveling in all 50, and his work is suffused with those experiences, perspectives and variegated life. Beyond international interests, his works embody varied subjects: cats, grandchildren, literature, wines, food, wars, Irish Whiskey and the improbable, intemperate behavior of fellow human beings.

A challenging, informative, fun read despite its factual basis, Flanagan — an ardent proponent and practitioner of the use of irony in all things written — cautions the reader on this and his other works: “Don’t take all this (his projected vision) too seriously. There’s no way any of us are going to get out of here alive!” Paperback. 364 pages. Other books by this author include All Present, Unaccounted For, Alternate Centres of Being, and Bits and Pieces: Windin' Down.

In the contest for land, Jesse Hughes bore a part far beyond that of the average settler. He was one of those woodsmen in whom was concentrated the hardihood, the daring, the fierce and uncontrollable spirit of our barbarous ancestors in the fens and on the swamp shores of Northwestern Europe. On the trail of the wild Indian, his soul hardened to iron and Jesse’s nature grew more savage than that of the man he hunted. He was grim, cruel, relentless, and bloodthirsty; but he was the product of the age in which he lived. (One of the Big Four.) Paperback. 520 pages.

The history of the Upper Potomac has been a rich one. The Colonial Period, however, has been somewhat neglected, primarily because the earliest records that relate to the Upper Potomac are not easily accessible. Volume I of Colonial Records of the Upper Potomac. . . is concerned with those records that provide information about this region from the earliest written sources in the 1600s up through 1744. It is a collection of documents and abstracts of records from a wide range of sources.

This volume includes documented information on Silver Mines on the Potomac, the Shawnee's "underground railroad," a trading post and horse race on the Potomac, as well as documents and maps throughout its 200 pages. Paperback. 208 pages. Other books by this author are The 1774 List of Tithables and Wheel Carriages in Berkeley County, Virginia, the Colonial Records of the Upper Potomac series, Elkins, WV, and Mortgage of America -- The End of U.S. Independence.

Down on the Farm With Three Little Girls

ISBN 0-87012-898-1

I was born July 8th, 1946 at Wetzel County Hospital, New Martinsville, West Virginia. My momma and daddy gave me two younger sisters, Nancy and Shirley. I lived in several different places during my childhood with my parents. We had a home on Doolin for a while, lived in Weirton in the country, and Beech Bottom, West Virginia. Momma passed away in June 1954 with Cancer. Her parents (my grandparents) took me and two sisters to raise because at that time, our daddy was working at Weirton Steele which was two hours away. We attended church regularly and my grandparents made certain we had a good education. My daddy passed away on July 9th, 1988.

After I graduated from Magnolia High School with the Class of 1964, I was employed as a telephone operator working in New Martinsville. I was married and had one son. In the summer of 1997, I moved to Sevierville, Tennessee. I worked at the Dollywood Theme Park in Pigeon Forge for four years at the Applejacks Restaurant. Also, I had a side job as a journalist for the Tennessee Star Journal for several years. I wrote a column about my life on the farm in West Virginia and I was known as ‘The Farm Gal’.

Also, in 1997, I met Greg Hoskins at a songwriters meeting in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. We became good friends working with our songwriting abilities. We became a singing group known as ‘Down Home A Livin’. We were regular performers at many of the local restaurants in the Smoky Mountain area before moving to Cuba, New Mexico in 2006. We now reside in Junior, West Virginia. We still continue to write and produce and perform our own songs. We have performed in Nashville and many other places throughout other states.

I enjoy writing because I found it a personal expression of love for everything. My ideas for songwriting come from nature, scenery, from folks who I have met, and most of all, from my heart because it’s filled with many wonderful memories.

As you read my book, you’ll get to know a little farm girl that would ‘cuss’ a little, and yes, Gram would ‘share’ her famous farm whippings! This little girl will give you laughs and tears but most of all, she will share a beautiful Walton Farm memory. Paperback. 326 pages.

Elkins, West Virginia 1889, the Magic City of the Wilderness

ISBN 0-87012-767-5

by William H. Rice

In the 17 July 1889 issue of the Cumberland Daily Times, the writer of an article about Elkins, West Virginia, refers to it as “The Magic City of the Wilderness”. That phrase accurately describes the sentiments of many people during the summer of 1889 as the city of Elkins began to emerge like a bright star rising on the horizon. Lots of “Big People” had lots of “Big Money” riding on the success of the new city. The livelihoods of thousands of laborers employed in building and railroad and running the industries that would fuel the development of the new city also depended on its success. And hundreds of families from throughout the region were headed for Elkins to stake their claims and establish their homes in a city which they believed had an exciting future. This book hopes to capture that moment in history by bringing together a large amount of information that relates to Elkins, during the summer of 1889. Paperback. 264 pages. Other books by this author are 1774 List of Tithables... and Index of the Estate Records.

Floriescence -- Foundations for Human Flourishing on a Thriving Planet

ISBN 978-17337084-0-1

by J. Dirk Nies, Ph.D. with Carmen Morales Nies

Floriescence is a groundbreaking, visionary synthesis of science, ethics, and aesthetics crafted to promote well-being in the 21st century. Its robust, comprehensive, multidimensional framework of fact and value - the Floriescent SEAview - affords a vantage point from which we can see where we ought to go, illumining ways of human flourishing that are in harmony with the ecological economy of the natural world. Simultaneously engaging the universal hopes and aspirations of the human spirit while nourishing the soul’s love of the personal and the particular, Floriescence creates a civil conversational space that invites both creativity and reverence as together we address the complex and often vexing problems of modern life.

J. Dirk Nies, Ph.D. is an environmental chemist, independent scholar, newspaper columnist, philosopher, farmhand, and the founder and Executive Director of the non-profit Floriescence Institute. Dirk enjoys composing music and he delights in creating meandering paths through the woods at Sweet Blue Farm in western Albemarle County, VA. Carmen Morales Nies, his beautiful bride of 45 years, holds degrees in Mental Health and Consumer Economics. Carmen is the Institute’s Director of Educational and Public Outreach Programs and she brought her childhood Puerto Rican “jíbara” experiences, her broad multi-cultural perspectives, and her practical sensibilities to bear on all facets of this, our first book project.

by Lud Gutmann, MD

These are stories about ordinary and extraordinary people—all patients with different neurological problems—but stories more about their personal struggles and coping than their diseases These accounts follow Dr. Gutmann’s forty years in medicine, from his training in New York City through his life-long University Hospital practice in West Virginia. Writing in his office, talking with medical students or his residents, hurrying down the hall to a clinic, listening quietly to a patient’s recounting of a traumatic event—Lud Gutmann has been collecting stories during all of his life. The stories in this book delve into different issues: from medical-ethical dilemmas; to misunderstandings or secrets or lies; to tracking down the causes of real or imaginary illness; however, the overarching theme is the patient and the patient’s history. Life stories are the focus of concern. Listening to and understanding is the first order in identifying the cause and prescribing care. Paperback. 144 pages. Other books by this author include Richard Road -- Journey From Hate and The Sunken Fang Society.

Jewel of the Meadow -- History of the Blue Sulphur Spring

ISBN 0-9993424-0-1

By Irma Smith Cadle

In March 2013, the Blue Sulphur Spring pavilion and two acres of land were donated and deeded by its then-owner, Mrs. Rebecca Fleshman Lineberry, to the Greenbrier Historical Society, with the hope that, under their umbrella, efforts could begin for the restoration of this beautiful little endangered relic of the Nineteenth Century. So much history is attached to this property and the surrounding area, and nearly everyone has a story to tell. As a member of the Friends of the Blue Committee and an avid history buff, I thought it might be appropriate to compile some of those stories and history for those of you who are, either supporting the restoration effort or simply interested in knowing more about this section of Greenbrier County, West Virginia.

My information and resources have been collected over many years, and I have, where possible, quoted the sources relied upon.

Thankfully, this resort has been the subject of much discussion over the years. It is also one of the most photographed structures in this area, and articles about “The Blue” have appeared in newspapers and magazines nationwide. I am so grateful to the Greenbrier Historical Society and its Archives for making available many of the articles and photographs included herein.

Our efforts to stabilize the structure have been completed and we anticipate undertaking the full restoration in the coming months. Much work has been accomplished, and much more is anticipated.

...kisses to last all day

ISBN 0-87012-924-4

By Rebecca J. Ferrell

I do not claim that my thoughts and words are any more profound, that my observations are any more humorous, nor do I claim they are any more substantial or relevant than those of anyone else. I’ve just chosen to write them on paper. The objective of this collection, is to give my written word to my children in the hopes that someday, when they have absolutely nothing else to do, they might read it. Nothing will please me more than having the run of the entire conversation. If perchance anyone else should have the misfortune of picking this up, I hope you enjoy it, as well. I hope that the pages will cause you to pray, think, and maybe even laugh a little. Disclaimer: This bundle of pages is for entertainment purposes only and is not intended to solve any or all of your problems. The Author. Paperback. 76 pages.

Lemuel Chenoweth -- Bridging the Gap

ISBN 0-87012-745-4

by Randy Allan

Lemuel Chenoweth was most likely the most accomplished builder of covered bridges in the United States between 1846 and 1861. During these years, he built about twenty covered bridges; however, the number of bridges he built is not so important as is the quality of his construction. This book not only describes in great detail the accomplishments of Lemuel’s professional career during the Civil War but also gives enlightening information about his family and their lives during this fascinating yet brutal time in United States history. Another book by this author is Civil War Legends. . . Paperback. 190 pages.

Levi -- His Hardships, Triumphs, and Impeccable Faith

ISBN 0-87012-882-5

Levi was born at a time when survival was a hardship for everyone, not just those who lived on mountain farms. Money was scarce and to earn any took a great deal of effort on the part of the person trying to earn it. Grandpa and his children spent many days toiling in the soil to have food, not only in the summer but to get through the extreme winters. The winters were often extremely cold and the snow often deep. For warmth, they only had a fireplace and a wood cookstove. There was no insulation in the old cabin, yet they kept warm with the love of each other and the bounty of food their God had provided.

My circumstances at birth were not much more modern than Grandpa's. I was born on Barkers Ridge, only a few miles from where Levi was born on the creek. I attended High School at Mullens and got a degree in Drafting. It wasn’t till years later that I attended college, part-time, at Concord College and at Bluefield State that life started coming together for me. A few years later my job transferred me to Lewisburg, I attended New River Community and Technical College, where I got an associate's degree in the Arts and where I became interested in creative writing.

Most of Grandpa Levi’s grandchildren only knew him as a soft-spoken, gentle, loving, caring, God-fearing man with a long white beard, a rounded top hat, and walked with the aid of a cane. I wanted to introduce to the grandchildren their Grandpa’s humanism. They should also understand his hardships while keeping the farm in check as his brother and sisters were there. Then it was his growing family. With both generations, there were more hardships than triumphs. Levi left a legacy for his family that can be matched but by a few. Paperback. 104 pages.

Illustrated by Heather Johnson

These Switchback Stories continue the characters and add others. They can be read in sequence or independently. Stories are set in the Greenbrier River Valley from Durbin to Cass, West Virginia. The Durbin Rocket Ride and the historic Cass Scenic Railroad capture the views and spirit of the area. Featured are Shay engine rides on the switchback tracks and steam engines on the river tracks. Both served in the lumber industry. The story's inspiration was a little yellow yard engine named Lil Leroi. The author felt he was an unsung hero who needed recognition for his life. The books tell how he and his neighbors live together and the stories highlight character-building events that occur in the adventures. Book 1, entitled Lil Leroi, gives life to a train engine that first led the ride. He was replaced by a steam engine and was given the job of a yard engine. The story develops how he grows and finds friends in his new job and in the railyard. Book 2 entitled Lil Leroi s Railroad Summer builds on the first book and both books share learning to like yourself, living with your neighbors, developing your talents, making the best of your opportunities, including others, enjoying games, sharing, cooperating, trusting, developing friendships and just having summer fun. Book 3 tells how life with his animal neighbors and railyard friends challenge them. Adventures test their values, abilities, and imaginations. Surprises lie ahead as they cooperate to meet their chosen tasks. Hopefully, the stories will teach about trains as well as positive behavior. Behaviors change like the switchback tracks. People conquer obstacles in their lives and move on in the same way. The author hopes children can enjoy the stories and imagine along with Lil Leroi. It is her hope that they learn to lead productive and fulfilling lives. It is a great privilege to encourage children to realize their potential. Paperback. 36 pages.

For seven and a half decades, I have been experiencing the voice of God. It came as prayer, Bible study, sacred literature, the Eucharist, other sacraments, and other people. You might say that this is not just my autobiography, but a collection of biographies of people who have touched my life. I have experienced or witnessed the lives of my mother, my wife, and my daughter, and even includes the person who is standing in front of me. All are gifts and opportunities to be present to God.

Thank the Lord for two eyes, not to look at things, but to see. For two ears, not to hear, but to listen. For two arms and hands, not for holding things, but people. For two legs and feet, to walk to the phone and call or to walk to the market to buy something that a person needs. I have only one mouth. Gratitude, gratitude, and even more gratitude become my final words. Paperback. 116 pages.

The Middle Ground -- A Book of Western Virginia Frontier Stories

ISBN 0-87012-903-1

by Shon Butler

These stories are historical fiction. Some are adaptations of true stories and local legends. Some of them are purely fictional creations. The Rogers family you are being introduced to in this book is the author's family.

The places mentioned are real places. Every ridge, stream, or rock ledge is somewhere the author has visited. From the Kanawha Valley to the Ohio Valley at Pittsburgh, the author has walked and studied these areas. He's hunted deer with the long rifle on the Buckhannon River; shot ducks and geese for Christmas dinners right in front of the site of Bush’s Fort; dug ginseng in the Kanawha Valley and Campbell’s Creek where Daniel Boone dug ginseng.

t is the author's hope that you, the reader, enjoy the tales, and possibly these stories will motivate you to study the history of the area you are in; to trace your ancestry; to get in touch with your roots, and to realize where you came from and where you are going; to turn your thoughts inward and find your inner fire, and to take better care of the earth you are given to live on. More importantly, the author hopes you live each day as if it were your last. Life comes and goes like steam above a kettle. Paperback. 110 pages.

by Ruth H. Uldrich

This book is a narrative beginning with my early life with more chronicled while I was in nursing school, followed by 26 years as an Air Force officer and, finally, the time since I retired from the Air Force. I made the Air Force a career after I realized everyone can be a part of improving America and keep her the greatest country in the world.

My life was greatly shaped by serving many years in the Air Force with the guiding principles of love, honor, duty, and country. The national anthem, our song of praise and gladness, awakens my heartfelt love of country, often shown in overflown tearful eyes. I think serving one’s nation in uniform creates an everlasting loyalty and allegiance to one’s country.

Taking my acceptance oath into the Air Force, I vowed to defend and protect America, Land of the Free. I felt very honored doing my duty as an American citizen in uniform. I hope my readers enjoy the story of my adventurous life, often containing unknown dangers. Paperback. 128 pages.

Working in the coal mining industry is like working in another country with a different language. Its social rules are feudal. People come to power with little experience and knowledge of that industry and are placed into high-pressure positions where they must fake the job or bully others to make it look like they are capable of managing. When they fail, people get killed. I think it is the last industry where the Master-Slave attitude is still fostered. Paperback. 160 pages.

For me, the Aid Station is the truth center in combat. Here the wounded, the dying, and the dead are brought. The wounded say how they 'got it’ or what ‘got them’. The dying have their last say, and, for the observant, the dead may speak even more eloquently than the living.” Paperback. 272 pages.

ISBN 0-87012-913-9

By David Kennedy

It is a story of the workings and whisperings of God to the people of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints who were born and lived in our part of West Virginia. It is a story of their adaptation to life, of overcoming the hardships of life, and their success in that process. The difference between the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and all the other Christian sects is communication we call ‘revelation given by the Holy Ghost. It embodies two working models: One or the entire church; which is granted to the body of Priesthood and Women leadership Quorums from the tiniest of Branches to the highest-level Stakes and Mission Districts.

The other model being the personal revelation given to the prayerful individual to operate his family and direct him or herself in that humble process. The so-called Christian world tells us that revelation is no longer needed because the scriptures are fulfilled, and God no longer speaks to man...that he is dead; that all those things existed in a world long ago and times have changed. That is not the message our church carries to the world. The brightness that Mormons carry on their faces is a testimony that God does indeed speak again to man and he is directing their course. In 1900, the entire membership of the church was just over 300,000 people and most of those members lived in Utah or Mexico...they used only 4 Temples. Today the membership is worldwide with a congregation of 16 million, the Book of Mormon has been translated into 130 languages and we use over 200 Temples. Revelation from God is the reason the message of Jesus Christ is filling the world. Paperback. 180 pages.

by Helen Groves Hedrick

On the high plateau of the Allegheny Highlands in West Virginia lies a picturesque scenic spot called Dolly Sods. Historical importance and natural beauty are presented in this third book for children by Helen Hedrick. In their childhood, Boo and Eze found a breathtaking patch of spring wildflowers beneath a hemlock tree. To their surprise, a timber rattler nearby was enjoying the warmth of a bright spring day. While it lay very still on a big rock, the girls silently slipped away from the poisonous snake. Years later, Miss Eze became a teacher and inspired many children to look, listen and learn about all living things. The book presents adventurous danger in a unique manner that you will remember for a long time. The secretive riddle is revealed as you explore the story. 48 pages.

Rattlesnake Riddle

ISBN 0-87012-687-3

by Helen Groves Hedrick

On the high plateau of the Allegheny Highlands in West Virginia lies a picturesque scenic spot called Dolly Sods. Historical importance and natural beauty are presented in this third book for children by Helen Hedrick. In their childhood, Boo and Eze found a breathtaking patch of spring wildflowers beneath a hemlock tree. To their surprise, a timber rattler nearby was enjoying the warmth of a bright spring day. While it lay very still on a big rock, the girls silently slipped away from the poisonous snake. Years later, Miss Eze became a teacher and inspired many children to look, listen and learn about all living things. The book presents adventurous danger in a unique manner that you will remember for a long time. The secretive riddle is revealed as you explore the story. 48 pages. Other books by this author include, Flying Moments, Life and Times of Ole Roan and Sis and the Singing Hens. Hardbound with dust jacket.

by Karen J. Dunn

This is an account of the life of Richard Nugen, a member of Captain Henry Buford’s militia company in Bedford County, Virginia, in August 1777. The lives of the men in this unit are intertwined again and again for years to come.

You won’t find Richard Nugen’s name listed in Virginia Soldiers in the American Revolution or another list of soldiers in the Revolution. Records about privates in the war are few and far between. Records about those killed in the war are fewer yet.

In the case of Richard Nugen, the situation in Virginia became critical when Lord Cornwallis invaded Virginia in 1781. J. T. McAllister put it this way in his book Virginia Militia in The Revolution: “In 1781, practically all of the available militia of Virginia were summoned into service, taking part in the Battle of Guilford Court House, and serving with Lafayette and at the Siege of Yorktown”.

Col. Charles Lynch took three hundred Bedford militia to the Battle of Guilford Courthouse in North Carolina. Lord Cornwallis’ army met General Nathaniel Greene’s army on March 15, 1781. The bloody battle lasted for two and a half hours. Lord Cornwallis’ army chased General Greene’s army from the battlefield. Hundreds of British and American soldiers lay on the battlefield dead, dying or severely wounded.

On May 28, 1781, five widows gathered at the Bedford County Courthouse to initiate the process of settling their husband’s estates. The widows were of three captains killed in Col. Charles Lynch’s Company of riflemen. The husbands of Elizabeth Nugen and Anna Greer were most certainly killed in the Battle of Guilford Courthouse as well. Family and friends gathered to support these widows. Fellow militiamen of Richard Nugen, Sr., Thomas Pate, and Samuel Shrewsberry would be appointed to appraise his estate.

In the case of Elizabeth Nugen, she would die before a year passed.

On May 27, 1782, the three youngest children of Richard and Elizabeth Nugen were bonded to Daniel Huddleston. Daniel Huddleston and his wife Rachel cared about the orphans of their neighbors Richard and Elizabeth Nugen. Daniel Huddleston brought John Nugen, the youngest bonded child, to Kanawha County, Virginia, in 1790. Kanawha County was on the frontier at the time. The Indians still raided the area. Daniel Huddleston and John Nugen served in the Rangers to protect the settlements in 1793. Richard Nugen, Jr. (older brother of John Nugen) and Rachael Nugen Huddleston (older sister of John Nugen) moved to Kanawha County too. Richard Nugen Jr. served in the Caperton Rangers in 1793. Richard Nugen, Jr. returned to Bedford County where he died approximately 1808 or 1809.

Richard Nugen, Jr’s children, David and Hannah Nugen came to Kanawha County, Virginia, after the death of their father in about 1808 where their Aunt Rachel Nugen Huddleston and Uncle John Nugen lived at that time.

Numerous descendants of David Nugen live in Kanawha and Fayette Counties, West Virginia, today. Many Nugen descendants moved west with the expansion of the nation to the Pacific Ocean. The events of the Revolutionary War changed the lives of Richard Nugen’s family. Richard Nugen gave his life for our freedom. He deserves to be remembered and honored. We need to guard our freedom for which he fought and died. Paperback. 130 pages. Other books by this author include Bedford County Virginia Militia 1774-1783, John Jenkins -- American Revolutionary War Soldier, and Just Butterflies.

The Store. . . takes us back to the days of the old fashioned general store, where a person could find just about anything he needed and sell his wool, eggs, butter, ginseng or chickens as well. The author grew up in an apartment above the Peoples Store and Supply, on the banks of the Greenbrier River in Marlinton, West Virginia. You will find his vivid memories of The Store as delightful as did the readers of his hometown paper, the Pocahontas Times when they were first published as a series of articles in 2006. The story focuses on the years of Sam’s boyhood, the 1930s, but it looks back to The Store’s founding in 1915 and ahead to its final days in the mid-1980s. Paperback. 56 pages.

The Great Depression crushed the main character, Elmer, like the grinding heel of the wood hick’s corked shoe on a rattlesnake’s head. His life as a timber beast with a worn-out portable sawmill, coal miner, and his dream of owning his own mine produced a man of stature and self-worth achieved through the gift of intelligence, desire and love. From the first to the last page, Sugarlands is a vivid account of what life was like for these poor struggling hill folks who gave in but never gave up. Paperback. 422 pages. Another title by this author is Capasheea’s Leadmine.

The stories of J. S. Zimmerman came to me many years ago in the form of a small homemade booklet with a pale green cover titled, RECOLLECTIONS.

I was fresh off of the publication of the Hanging Rock Rebel: Lt. Blue’s War in the Shenandoah Valley and West Virginia. I was looking for someone to tell a story. Writing has never been my “thing”, but I certainly know a good story when I read one. Both Lt. Blue and Mr. Zimmerman could certainly tell a good story!

I can’t even remember where I found the RECOLLECTIONS book; an auction, a gift; or just a lucky find. Immediately, I began typing the story (pre-scanner days) and once that was finished, I moved along on my plans for publication.

At the time I was serving as president of the newly formed W. Va. Schools for the Deaf and the Blind Foundation and the Zimmerman Family were interested in donating to the school in honor of a past generation of relatives who worked at the school. From a letter dated Oct. 9, 1998, from Mrs. Archie Oliver Jenkins, II, “Penny”, granddaughter of Mr. Zimmerman,

“The real connection with the West Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind is more through personal relationships than through blood relationship – Kitty Campbell Zimmerman McCracken and Mildred Sites Zimmerman both taught at the Schools, as did more recently a cousin, Mary Rose Pancake Hicks; and as I have told you, I even spent several nights ‘sleeping over’ at the school with the superintendent’s daughter, Mary Harris, in my growing up years when I was visiting Romney. In addition, the Zimmerman’s were quite close to the Seton [Seaton] Family too; so our present interest in the school is actually a natural continuation of a long-term relationship with the school itself and with a number of people connected to the school.”

Plans for publication were waylaid that year by work and life in general. It wasn’t until 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic that I was motivated to work on this project and had the time to it.

As you will be able to surmise in the biography of Mr. Zimmerman, he was a well-educated man, but as with all men of the early to mid-20th century, he was remarkably diverse in his interest. Not only was he an accomplished attorney, a member of the W. Va. House of Delegates but he was also an avid outdoorsman, as a bass fisherman and a turkey hunter.

His time spent with his peers, both in the woods and out, would have been something to behold. I think it would have been very interesting to be a “fly on the wall” while these men sat around the Courthouse and told stories.

His recollections are rarely dated and told in a way that reflects a less complicated time. This was on the front page of the original book:

Father wrote these stories while he was recuperating from an illness during the latter part of his life, and I have transcribed them for the pleasure of his children.

Talking out of School

ISBN 0-87012-895-7

by Lexsana Pilewski-Carr

Occasionally my husband and I act like we’re important people (Republicans), like people in smoking jackets and rich brocade lady jackets (stained jeans and “West Virginia Cutie” T-shirts). We sip our finest tea (ice-cold Coke Zero in measuring cups when dishes are washing) and dive into (we don’t swim) the minefield of education (Boom!) We recall rousing key events (hell-on-earth whole chapters) of productive moments (all students awake) in our own teaching careers. During one busy morning (of drooling nothingness), I decided to publish my “essoir” (essay parts morphed into a memoir). Husband’s interest piqued (feigned).

“So, should I finish that book I started ten years ago? A memoir, maybe?” (begging the question), I asked him one evening as we ate smoked salmon at the table (popcorn in our lounge chairs).

“A memoir? Of what, teaching? Do teachers do that? I don’t think I ever read a memoir by a teacher,” he reflected, deeply (never taking his transfixed eyes off a NASCAR race).

That was my epiphany about the profession both of us had just polished off like donuts (teachers’ holy wafers). The inference from his teacher-author memoir question was that the reading public (some actually can read, and still read actual books), would resist parting with $17.95 to buy anything written by a teacher (profession with apparent zero side talent, but still manages to teach all the earth’s other professions). The second inference was that teachers’ supposed lackluster lives lack a life because they are machines who never, ever veer from a forty-year daily grind. To paraphrase Lin Manuel Miranda (who knows about love of any kind and that mildly successful musical surrounding a ten-dollar bill on Broadway): “Teaching is teaching is teaching is teaching….”

We ruminated in the Hamptons one patriotic weekend (upon our hilltop mini patio, twirling sparklers), and let the juices flow (grilling hamburgers on a $19.99 Walmart lopsided charcoal grill).

“You’d better do the memoir while it’s still all fresh in your head,” hubby said (meaning, write it down NOW, before you ask me each morning why the Easter eggs are all dyed brown and hidden in an Eggland carton in the fridge).

“I intend to, and I am going to get started tomorrow!” said I (meaning in a future decade).

“Good, because no one else can tell your story but you.” (silently repeating the earlier question, but only in his head: Do teachers write memoirs, really? Well...better not quit my retirement job.)

I had a rich story to tell (and private parts not to tell), something out-of-the-box, epic-like (marginally appealing, with that pity clap feel, destined never to become a major motion picture, like The Bouncy Castle or Thursdays with Sidney or Goodbye, Mr. Cheetos). Paperback. 328 pages.
