Kanawha County Biographies

Book Description:

We've gone through three volumes of West Virginia biographies and extracted over 125 of them to make this newly printed 8 1/2" x 11" booklet. The biographies are for persons living outside of the City of Charleston, but within Kanawha County, West Virginia, during or prior to 1928. With 85 pages of newsprint-size type, it's obvious they're full of detailed info -- ancestors, occupations, business enterprises, education, military service, siblings, spouse, children, honors, etc. The biographies were taken from West Virginia in History, Life, Literature and Industry by Morris Purdy Shawkey, published in 1928. The booklet is printed on 60# opaque paper with the front cover protected with a vinyl sheet. A similar booklet is available with biographies of Charleston residents, while a History of Kanawha County, compiled from 8 books, can be found in a third booklet. The Biographies in this booklet include: CABIN CREEK JUNCTION James R. Palmer, Walter A. Gilman, Oliver Bernard Wendeln CEDAR GROVE Roger W. Thompkins, James B. Kennedy, James Harvey Maloney, John A.
