NEW STATE
First Constitution

Pages 118-144

WEST VIRGINIA was admitted into the Union as a state on the twentieth day of June, 1863. Its constitution differed from that under which the people had lived and it was necessary that laws be made to conform to the new constitution that the new system of government might go into effect as soon as possible.

The Legislature convened on the morning of Statehood and remained in session until the eleventh of December following.

The constitution provided for a township system for county government. The county court consisted of the justices of the peace of the county, held its last session on the nineteenth of June, 1863, the day previous to the admission of the state into the Union.

Article VII, Sections 1 and 2 read:

1. Every county shall be divided into not less than three nor more than ten townships, laid off as compactly as practicable, with reference to natural boundaries, and containing as nearly as practicable, an equal number of white population, but not less than four hundred. Each township shall be designated, "the township of ..................... in the county of ............ ........ ," by which name it may be sued.

2. The voters of each township, assembled, in stated or special township meeting, shall transact all such business relating exclusively to their township as is herein, or may be required -by law or authorized. They shall annually elect a supervisor, clerk of the township, surveyor of roads for each precinct in their township, overseer of the poor, and such other officers as may be directed by law.

They shall also every four years, elect one justice of the peace; and if the white population of their township exceeds twelve hundred in number, may elect an additional justice; and every two years, shall elect as many constables as justices.

The supervisor, or in his absence, a voter, chosen by those present, shall preside at all township meetings and elections and the clerk shall act as clerk thereof.

That the counties of the state might be divided into townships as required by the constitution of the state, the Legislature passed an act on the thirty-first of July, 1863, appointing persons and directing how the work should be done. It read:

The persons named in the schedule of this act, being one for each magisterial district, in each county of the state, a majority of whom may act, are hereby appointed commissioners to divide their respective counties into townships, in accordance with the provisions of the first section of the seventh article of the constitution; and shall as soon as practical, first being dully sworn, proceed to make such divisions. When a city or incorporated town necessarily constitutes a part of two or more townships, and is divided into wards, the boundaries of such townships within such city or town, shall, if practicable, be so located that parts of the same ward are not thrown into different townships.

The act provided-That commissioners for each county shall employe a competent surveyor who shall attend them when required and shall run and mark such lines as they may designate.

The commissioners appointed for Marshall County were John Winters, Jeremiah Jones, Wm. McFarland, Sr., Alex Kemple, G. W. Evans, Wm. Stewart, John Burley and John Alley.

The commissioners employed Michael Dowler as their surveyor and divided the county into nine townships, viz.: CAMERON, CLAY, FRANKLIN, LIBERTY, MEADE, SAND HILL, UNION, WEBSTER and WASHINGTON.

The first township election was held on the fourteenth of January, 1864, and was called by the supervisors by authority given then at a township meeting. It was for the purpose of filling the township offices that the work might be started at as early a date as possible.

The supervisors met on the twenty-sixth of January of the same year, as provided by law, to canvass the returns of the township election held on the above date. After the first township election they were held annually on the fourth Thursday of April.

The term of office of the first officers elected at the township election was provided in a special act regulating the term of office and read as follows:

The term of office of the officers elected at the first township election, if the same are held before the time for holding the state and county elections in the present year, shall commence on and include the tenth day after the respective elections, but shall continue and be computed as if the same had begun on twentieth day of June in the past year. But if the time of holding the first election occurs after the said state and county elections, and before or at the time appointed for holding the annual township election in the year one thousand eight hundred and sixty-four, the term of office shall be computed as if the same began on the twentieth of the next June.
