About this title


This narrative uncovers the exciting history that gave rise to the towns of Bemis, Glady, Flint, Montes, Woodrow and Morribell and, eventually, their decline. Many stories and historical events unfold for the first time. This work includes thousands of names of those who worked, lived and attended the schools of these towns, and the many individuals who died prematurely in their struggle to settle a virtual wilderness. 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 cross section 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 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.

About the Author:

Steve Bodkins was raised in the Randolph County, West Virginia, mountains primarily in the Bemis and Glady area.The stories he heard throughout his childhood about the timber and mining booms in the area planted the seed for him to write this book which would take him years in research, collecting materials and photos, and interviewing individuals who helped uncover the history of Bemis and Glady.
