Ford Run School, Barbour County

Ford Run School,
Barbour County

Submitted by Crystal Boggs


The photo was taken at Ford Run - Philippi, Barbour County, West Virginia approximately 1935. There must have been a school at Ford Run at that time. I do not know any of the other other names.

The children named are: Ray Boylen (b. 1925), Melrose (Boylen) Simpson (b. 1926), Troy Boylen (b. 1928) and Kenny Boylen (b. 1931). They are the children of Samuel M. & Edna Marie (Lyons) Boylen. Ray and his siblings are the great great grandchildren of Abner & Margaret "Peggy" (Glascock) Boilon who originally settled in Taylor's Drain back in the earlier 1800's.
