    MARSHALL COUNTY, WV - HISTORY OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
    Second Edition

    By Joseph D. Parriott.

    Moundsville author, Joseph D. Parriott, has published a second edition of Marshall County, West Virginia - History of the Twentieth Century. Like the first edition, this book is of great importance because little else has been published that describes the changes affecting most aspects of daily life in Marshall County in the last century.

    In his new book, Mr. Parriott writes about early communities, farm life, religion, health, transportation, business, communications, natural resources, crime & punishment - and more.

    According to Mr. Parriott: "The purpose of the book is to leave younger and future generations a glimpse of how life was lived in Marshall County one hundred years ago, and to be thankful for the changes that have transpired. We should be grateful to have a government that rewards hard work, innovators, and entrepreneurs, for it is they who have brought about the dramatic improvements in our lives."

    Mr. Parriott has spent countless hours piecing together the history from original sources, such as courthouse records and old newspapers on microfilm at the library. His research is meticulous and he is able to organize and present it in an accurate historical context. He personalizes his books by including anecdotes based on his own experiences and his knowledge of the community and events.

    VERSES FROM THE HILLS
    by
    Flora Downey Parriott - Published by her son, Joseph D. Parriott.

    Verses from the Hills provides a window into the austere life of rural America in the first half of the twentieth century. Flora Downey Parriott (1897-1988) spent most of her life amidst the rounded ridges, narrow valleys, and steep hillsides of Marshall County, West Virginia. - While Flora started writing poems as a grade school student, most of this collection was composed after she was 65 years old. Her observations, philosophies, and life experiences are depicted in these verses, reflecting the abundance of joy and humor that can be found within modest means and hard work. No matter where you come from, you can find a part of yourself in Flora's memories of friends, family, faith and fun.

    THE OLDEN DAYS ON FISH CREEK
    Marshall County
    West Virginia

    by HALCIE O. CROW

    The book is a collection of Halcie's memories of growing up on Fish Creek at Meighen in Marshall County. - She was born in 1911 and died in 2000. She was a member of the Marshall County Historical Society.

    This wonderful little book was published by Mae (Anderson) Crow. Mae married Halcie's nephew, Donald E. Crow (s/o Elmer), and they were very close to Halcie.

    The book is nicely bound in a soft cover; 36 pages. The cost is $14 [including shipping].

    Send orders to:

    MAE CROW
    RR #5 Box 277
    Moundsville, WV 26041-9709

    Halcie's words paint a picture of what it was like to grow up on Fish Creek. It is wonderfully nostalgic, with an abundance of information about how life was in those days - like getting teeth pulled at Bill Richmond's store!! She tells how they did things in their daily lives, such as canning, baking, making molasses, shoeing horses, etc. - - Then she tells about the families in the area. Her wonderful stories about the people can't be found in court records or on the Internet. Especially for descendants and relatives of the families, these stories are a treasure!


    DAKAN Family Book

    The late Dorothy DAKAN Sedosky, of Moundsville & Roseby's Rock, WV, published a book about the DAKAN Family.

    Titled, "Descendants of Simon & Elizabeth Martin Dakan," the book contains 472 pages, with an additional 83 pages in a section about Roseby's Rock, the village where Dorothy was born and raised, and where her family still maintains the family home place.

    The book is not the kind of genealogy book we often see today, that is nothing but names and dates. Rather, it reads more like a story, with an abundance of pictures and documents telling much of it.

    Someone told Dorothy she should call the book, "Dorothy's Scrapbook." And it is very much like a scrapbook, with all the items carefully labeled and described.

    The DAKAN book was quite obviously a labor of love for Dorothy and will be a wonderful resource for researchers of this family.

    With a hard cover, the book is $55; $45 for soft cover. This price includes shipping.

    To order the book, contact Dorothy's daughter, Maxine Sedosky Wayson, 300 William St., Camden, Delaware (maxnbob@verizon.net - phone 302-697-6725)
