I am a retired USAF Lt. Col. doing genealogy on the Richmond family. My father and grandfather, both David W. Richmond, were born in Silver Hill, WVa, where many of my ancestors lived and died. My descendant line runs through Henry Griffin Richmond, David B. Richmond, Abraham Richmond, and John Richmond. I am working with county clerks of Wetzel, WVa, and Washington, PA to locate records of 19th and 18th century ancestors. I would be interested in corresponding with anyone researching the Richmond family.

My great-great-grandfather was Henry Spencer Hayes (1858-1930), born in Wetzel County, and son of Edmund and Elizabeth Hays. Henry married Charlotta Jane Moore of Wetzel County and had 14 children. I spent several years researching the descendants of Henry Hayes and eventually published a book in 2007 called "The Musical Hayes Family of West Virginia" about them. A good portion of the book focuses primarily on the family of their firstborn son, Homer Tennyson Hayes (1885-1950), my great-grandfather. Henry and Charlotta were musical, as were all 12 of their children who survived infancy/childhood. Homer and his wife were also musical, as were all 10 of their children. In fact, the musical genes of Henry and Charlotta carried on through dozens of their descendants, and this covers the remainder of my book. If anyone remembers these families or knows the Hayeses of Wetzel County, you may find this book a enjoyable read. Contact me if you're interested. You will find several free previews online by "Googling" the title.

Hi there!

I went to an organ recital given by 9 students of Juilliard's in a church in Manhattan a couple of days ago. No, they did not play together, they played one after the other.

The middle one of these very gifted and advanced musicians was James Wetzel, from Pittsburgh.

I collared him afterwards, complimented him on his Saint-Saens, and told him that I am half a Wetzel also: my mother was a Wetzel, from Ennetbaden, Switzerland. I was born there in 1933, came to the States in 1961, and am now a dual citizen. James told me that there is a Wetzel County in W. Virginia. I googled it this morning, and here we are.

My older brother, as a college project, traced the Wetzels back to I believe 1475 or so. They always lived in the area of Baden - Ennetbaden - Wettingen, three adjacent communities in the Kanton Aargau of Switzerland, near Zurich. They were farmers.
My Wetzel cousins are still farmers, but no longer in Ennetbaden, which became too urbanized. My Wetzel grandparents sold the farm in the 1930s and bought a nice large farm about 10 miles away, in Buchs, Kanton Zurich. You can have lunch with their offspring, by name of Wetzel, they have a country inn attached to the farm, and you can visit their old quartz sand mine under the property, which is no longer being exploited.

When a Swiss gal gets married, the new couple is known by both names, hyphenated, husband's first ... of course.
Thus my parents were Paul and Anna Bachli-Wetzel. We were known as the Bachli-Wetzels, to distinguish us from a couple of other Bachli families in the region. The children however, are named only after the father. Thus I am very truly yours,

Roman Bachli
155 West 68th Street, Apt 1111

E: bachiroman@mindspring.com

PS The Swiss are not only citizens of Switzerland, each Swiss is also a citizen of a specific village or town. I am a citizen of Wurenlingen. My Bachli grandfather was born there, but left it at about age 10, never to return. The village hall of Wurenlingen keeps my records: they always know where I live, if I get married the name of the bride is added to my name, children are added, deaths are recorded. And if I fall on hard times, they will give me bed and board in their Poor House.

Do you think that Wetzel County in W. Virginia will also look after me, should it becomes necessary? :-)

She married James Moran and had two sons, James Jr, now dead and the younger son Raymond D. my dad now 78. My dad married Elizabeth Louise yeater, the youngest daughter of Rachel and Bill Yeater. Grandad Bill died in the year of my birth or at least around that time...1956. Grandma Yeater raised 5 kids. Leo, my uncle, now long dead of cancer was the only boy. He and my dad were best friends... Leo lived in Hundred and Dad was raised 'on the hill' between Burton and Hundred.

Grandma Yeater was a seamstress for the town of Hundred. She kept care over her oldest daughter, Willa, who was crippled by polio at the age of 3 and stopped developing mentally. Her arms and legs were crippled as well...but she knew a few names and could fed herself.

I used to shop at Bell's market as a child. I was told my daddy Bill owned the hardware store where Leo and my Mom, Louise would help out with work. It was through Leo that my dad met my mom.

I was born the 3rd of 4 kids shortly after my folks had moved down from Buffalo NY to Springdale PA in 1956.

Yesterday, 4 AUG 07, I attended the Descendants of Col. Morgan Morgan 100th Reunion held at Prickett's Fort in Fairmont. They planned on maybe 100 people. There were 500+ in attendence in the sweltering heat. Col. Morgan Morgan was the first white settler in what is now West Virginia. A son of his, Zackquill, founded Morgantown,VA(WV). My wife Patricia and daughter Dakota Shyann are descendants of Zackquills' brother David Morgan, the Indian Fighter. Zackquill had a son Levi, his monument stands in front of Wetzel County Court House in New Martinsville. Morgan Morgan was born in Wales in 1688, died near Bunker Hill, WV, 1766. Patricia has been to the Morgan cabin. David the Indian fighter had a grandson called Paddy Mod who built a mill on the creek in Porters Falls, Wetzel Co. Paddy Mods' brother Aaron is buried in a small grown up cemetery near Slim Chance Hill by the RR. The one interesting thing I saw that day was during the auction. A man named French Morgan wrote a book called " A History and Genealogy of the Family of Col. Morgan Morgan the First White Settler of the State of West Virginia" in 1950. It was printed by Mrs. Virginia Tuttle of New Martinsville,WV in 1966. This book is no longer in print and is prized among Morgans. One sold for $3,100! A surpise guest was the Moutaineer, WVU mascot, which showed the 500+ that the reason we West Virginian's are Always Free is because of men like Col. Morgan Morgan.

The June 27,2007 Wetzel Chronicle had a photo of a water tank on Owls Head hill by Jacksonburg.It listed Owls Head as being 1,100 feet above sea level.Topographic maps of Wetzel Co. list it as being 1,476 feet above sea level. But... the maps also have the Honsocker Knob near Hundred as being 1,652 feet above sea level.Back in the 1980s I called a land surveyor who had a farm in the Big Run area with rows of walnut trees. I asked him what was the highest point in Wetzel Co., he told me it was Honsocker Knob near Hundred and Saint Cloud.In the 1990s another land surveyor told me the same thing,Honsocker Knob. So, is it Owls Head or Honsocker Knob?

I have a three quarter rope bed (from my father's side of the family.) great great aunties log cabin in Burton...the Elihu Lemley family, son was John S. Lemeley. I am trying to find out more about the bed. I have photos of the aunties in front of the cabin, and later photos of the land where it was located, and the home they lived in later into the 1940's.I also have a certificate from "The Department of Free Schools, Wetzel County West Virginia" dated 1883, to my great grandfather, John S. Lemely.
My mother was also born in West Virginia on Spruce Mountain. Her father was a coal miner there. His name was Leo Corrigan.
Is there anyone I could contact about the location of the farm/log cabin in Burton, and anything about this bed which has pansies painted in rows all over it? The pegs are hand carved and I was told that cabin was built in the 1840's. Is that possible?
Thanks for your help. I'm the only one in the family who archives things and is interested in preserving photos and other memorabelia.
Sincerely,
Anne Howard

Hello,
I was reading the Wetzel County site when I ran across this name in you listing, Janet Higgenbothem. My gradnmother was a Higgenbothem and I was wondering if perhaps this lady might know some of our family history....I have the Higgenbothem family bible which has been handed down through the family. If this is part of her family she might would like to see it also.
I would like to contact her if possible. Thank you for your time. Kristy Smith kristy142@hotmail.com

I am 71 years old & I am just starting on my family history.The Grave yard up Readers run has been renamed since my Grandparents lived there. It was called the Goodnight Grave yard. John Goodnight was my Grandparents son. My Grandparents had 3 girls, & 5 boys on this small farm. All my family is gone now and it is very hard to find things out. The family all came to Moundsville in the late 20's or early 30's & my father got a job at the Smelter Works. My Father married Mildred Garrison in August 9, 1930. I have traced back to Christian Gutknect (Goodnight) in Germany June 22,1722.

I came across this page while searching for information on the Fair family, my fathers mothers side. My grandmother was Vera Fair (Morris)grand-daughter of A.T. Fair. I've not been down to WV in some year and am planning a visit this summer (hopefully). I'm particularly interested in the Proctor Creek area. In 1987 a Mr. Olin Hall took my father and I to the site of the old A.T. Fair house and the grist mill. Only parts of the building foundations were still visible.

Great Site - very useful, best regards and keep up the great work!!

Thank you to all the good people of Wetzel county! My mother , Betty Burgess, is in the hospital here in Canton Ohio and has recieved many cards from you folks. Especially the people from the United Methodist Curch of Reader. Those really brightened her day. I am happy to say she is doing pretty well now, out of ICU and both eating and talking well. Mt dad, Howard Burgess, and I really appreciate the effort to make her day brighter. Also, thanks to Janet Higgenbothem without whom the cards would not have been written.
Thanks and God Bless

I certainly did enjoy getting on this website, and finding a picture of my Grandfather on the front porch of the Reader Hotel. I did not know that there was a hotel at Reader. It must have been before I was born in 1931. I also enjoyed the history of Reader, and the old pictures. My grandfather was J.D. Wayne. My parents are buried in the Cochran Cemetery, so I liked the list of people who are buried there. My mother died after 1978, so her name is not listed on the registry. Could you tell me when the hotel was in Reader, and where it was located? Thanks so much for giving me the pleasure of renewing some old memories.

Found this site and apprectiate the cemetary page so much. My father-Donald K. Dennison taught at the one room schoolhouse on Hickory Knob up Fallen Timber Run Rd. I believe it was in the 1950's. If anyone has any info. or pictures or memories of that school and that area please email me. My father and I hiked up that mountain many times to the cemetary at the top where the school used to be. He has passed on in 1996, but 2 yrs. ago I hiked back up there. My mother was Inez Inda Carson (Dennison) from the Pine Grove area. I know she worked in a restruarant/gas station in Smithfield while my father was in the WWII.
Please, if anyone knows the name of that school or anything, please take the time to email me. thanks so much for this website. It's so informative.

I am working on the Bertges family. They were were in New Martinsville for a very short period of time. Peter and his wife Anna had a child in 1876 who died in 1880. What I am trying to find out is what brought Peter to WVA from Pittsburgh. They were there for sure in 1880. He said on the census he was a laborer. I think he may have worked for the railroad.

I just recently started researching the PAUGH family, and your site is a great resource. My father was born in New Martinsville and I grew up in St. Clairsville, Ohio. We are descended from John and Elizabeth (POSTLETHWAIT) PAUGH. Here is the short version of my line:
John Paugh
Isaac Paugh
Jason Paugh
Lindsey Webster Paugh
Melvin K. Paugh
Dad
Me

I noticed on the cemetery page that the PAUGH cemetery on PAUGH Ridge, Proctor District has not been documented. I plan to make a trip there sometime this summer to document that cemetery. One of my uncles knows how to find it. When I get the info compiled, I will make it available for the Wetzel County page.

Also our family cemetary in Arches Fork is not listed in the cemetary index. Thank You. In addition other names in that family line that I can remember are Lowe, Carrol, and Prunty.

One probably unimportant question:

Why do you have that Lewis Wetzel is a frontier "character"?
To me it makes him sound like a fictional "character" perhaps like "Yosemite Sam" or someone like that. We had family in & they were interested in genealogical matters, I showed them this site & that was the first thing that they said. Sorry, I know this is a very small question. Other-
wise I really like your site & found it very interesting.
Also, have visited your museum in New Martinsville twice.
Thanks for all your work.

You have a great genealogy page. I responded to a Ross querie and had a response the next day from two people. Also, I sent an email to the wrong address and that person responded too. Still trying to find Edith Ross(1812-1912) from Fishing Creek (I think)

I have enjoyed your website this evening. I was hoping to find out why our district and high school were named Magnolia. Seems a strange name for a school in the "North". My family is still in NM. My grandfather was superintendent of schools way back when. My father was on the football team for Magnolia in the late 20's and early 30's. I didn't see anything about the Tuttle's on your site.

My mom & some of her siblings were born in Piney. We're working on our family roots & was trying to information. Put in Wetzel, WV and decided to send Bill a note to find out some information. He is most helpful and maintains excellent records....turns out we're related not only through the Cunninghams, but also the Cumberledges. My grandparents were Richard Hannon Miller & Amanda (nee Myers), her grandpaents were Cunninghams. Anyone else out there related to us. Keep up the great work Bill.....I enjoy reading the history & pictures are a bonus.

Thanks again, Beverly

My parents, now deceased, always indicated that we were direct descendants of Lewis Wetzel. I may have seen that in a genealogy record when I was quite young, but I don't have that record. I do have a book written about Lewis which I am sure is not that unique. My father's name was Miles T. and his father, my grandfather, was Milton. My father was born in I905 in Old Zionsville, Penna. If you have records that would identify these names on Lewis's
genealogy, I would love receiving some communique. I enjoyed viewing your site. Even tho I lived in the east for 35 years, I never took the opportunity to visit Wetzel County. Perhaps that will happen in the next year or two.
Sincerely,
Clark Wetzel

I was looking for some information on Wetzel County since we have just bought a place near Hundred, and hope to retire there, and eat ramps and fried potatoes. We just took a picture of an old store in Earnshaw at Thanksgiving and was looking for some information on it. Thanks so much for all the info. Seems there were 2 stores so I wonder which one I have a picture of? Don't know of any relatives out there in Wetzel County, but I did see a John Knight (my maiden name is Knight) listed in Piney! Most of my ancestors are PA German. I have a website (not related to beautiful WV) "Jann's PA Dutch Kitchen":

My father, Ashley E. Fleming was born in Jacksonburg in 1914. His family was originally from Ravenswood. I can find absolutely no records on his father and mother's (Guy P. Fleming, Amanda Pearl Ashley) marriage, where they lived, when and where they divorced. If someone sees this and can help me, I'd sure like to fill in the gaps of my family. My dad was an only child and has long since passed away.

You have a very impressive homepage, however, I didn't find my link to the past. I'm searching for the KAY FAMILY -- parentage of Mary, b. 1829; Harriet, Hannah and James Kay. Mary Kay married William Dye of Monroe County, Ohio. Mary had a sister (Harriet or Hannah) who resided in Sistersville, West Virginia, however, I do not know her married name. James died in the Old Soldiers Home, Sawtelle, Los Angeles County, California. From records of the Los Angeles National Cemetery, I have learned that he served with the West Virginia Cavalry, 5th Regiment, Company E. He died April 8, 1904. Can anyone help me find the parentage of these four Kay siblings?

I was going through an old family album and found that I am related to the Wetzel's. It was listed John Wetzel as the father and the children were Lewis and Jacob. The story my grandmother wrote was of the Indian massacre of the family while the two boys were captured!
Now I realize there are many Wetzel's out there.

My grandfather was Solomon Gamble Yoho, born in 1860.
He and the one mentioned as a civil war vet. are the only "Solomons" I've heard of, untill I saw one listed in the Yoho index on Tim Yoho's Web page. He nor my grandfather could have been in the civil war....
Just trying to dig around and see if I could find any more information. Thanks, you have a nice web page

This is the best setup I have encountered thus far in trying to do family research for both my and my husband's families. I have not had the time yet to explore all you have to offer, but I will certainly be checking in with this site often until I exhaust all possible leads.

You seem to be quite educated about this area. Do you happen to know where "Frances" or "Francis" WV was? Probably in Marshall or Wetzel Counties I would guess, back in early 1900's. I realize you get many e-mails and may not be able to answer, but just thought I would ask. Thanks.

This is a great sight, as it's the first place I've come across anything with my Stout's in it.

I was looking for something I had seen by Randy Starkey, which I found, but then also found this. I was looking for Randy Starkey, as my great-gr-gr-grandfather is old John Stout from Stout's Run in Wetzel County near Folsom and he was married to Margaret Starkey. I thought he may know more about the Stouts than I have. I have been to Stout's Run Cemetary and have met some of my relatives down there. Both my parents are from WV. We just happened to end up in PA. I'm trying to find out if anyone knows any more about old John Stout than that he came from Sancho Creek. I am told that this line of the Stout's originally came from Ireland. Does anyone know about that? Also, does anyone know what church they went to around Smithfield or Folsom. Thanks.

Visited New Martinsville last year and found some records of a relative, Jonathan Nixon Coulter. We know that he is related but don't know how just yet. Am searching for any of his relatives especially Samuel Nixon Coulter - his son.
New Martinsville very nice, friendly, helpful people. May get back again this Sept. Did see one e-mail re: Coulters in W.Va. from a K.Moore. E-mailed but received no reply.
Anyway, thanks much for your sight.

I like your page. It's easy to use. I especially liked the descendant charts. My grandma's mom was Ann Bland, born abt. 1849 in Greene Co., Indiana. I stopped at the Bland Family Forum and was told there that there were 2 groups of Blands, one from VA and one from Ind.(I think) and they usually didn't get together.

Originally from Wetzel County, I'm interested in the history of that area including information on ancestors, etc. I've found much of the cemetery info interesting and look forward to a complete listing of county cemeteries. I remember hearing stories of family history from aunts, uncles, etc. and have found many familiar names in these listings. I visit my family in Wetzel County several times per year, and this web site has given me an incentive to visit some of the county cemeteries in order to see the burial places of many of my ancestors. Good Work!
