This picture was copied from a newspaper clipping. Odbert Moore, far right in the first row is my father. I have tried to locate Sand Ridge but was unable to. My father grew up in the Hunters Fork area, below Belington so maybe Sand Ridge is close by. I am originally from Belington.

Note from Margaret Lew: Found in the DeLorme West Virginia Atlas & Gazetteer, page 37: Sand Ridge is an area just southeast of Vannoys Mill and west of Meadowville. County Route 40-4 runs by on the southwestern side of it. Both the Sand Ridge and Hunters Fork areas are shown north of Belington on this map.
