    Yeah, the Egnor's were in Virginia before the state split at the start of the Civil War. We fought on both the Union and Confederate side (the WV obviously on the Union side) and my dads family came from a place called Lego Holler.

    Getting Democrats together and keeping them that way is like herding cats that are high on meth, through L.A., during an earthquake, in the rain -6.25, -6.10

    •  Schnyders wandered over the Potomac (5+ / 0-)

      from Keedysville, MD about Lewis and Clark's time. Took them 70 yrs to get from Philly to western Md.

      And that was the end of the migration. We have always been over here in the EP, the two counties with no coal, but limestone. I am West Virginian, but an outsider to those in Beckley.

      A relative wounded in the First Battle of Bull Run was murdered in his parlor outside of Shepherdstown two years later while re-cooperating. Lots of hanky-panky over here with deeds back then. There are too many Church of the Brethern in the tree to have many soldiers.
