    Roger, all of my siblings acquired your History of Noble Country around the time of my grandmother’s funeral – Amy Carter Johnson Jan 3, 1990. She was daughter of Hiram D. Carter and Florence Clay of Whigville where my mom was born (Emily I Johnson Wolfe). Because I am undertaking my family tree / genealogy now I finally am reading it in detail. Wow. You did a wonderful job of recreating the history rich in detail about the times, people, culture, events, business and everything. Just as I am reading chapter Mines and Machines the WSJ published the article “Shale Lifts Propects in Ohio” about shale oil development. The link is here if you haven’t see it. The WSJ article sort of opens another chapter on oil/gas in SE Ohio. Thank you so much for your book, I will highly recommend to others.

    As a repatriated Buckeye (50+ years), I recently had the opportunity to see your 1996 article in “TimeLine” of the Ohio Historical Society on the BC&Z railroad. As a former resident of Powhatan Point, Ohio, I can remember my parents telling me about riding that road in the early 1900s.

    About twenty years ago, my wife acquired a watercolor painting of a BC&Z scene (by an Alberta Hatmaker of Frederick, Maryland who told her that she had copied the painting from an old photograph she found at a relatives’ home in Little Washington, Ohio). That 30″ x 20″ painting shows a engine numbered “52” at a stop labeled “Unity Rail Station”.The engine bears the name “Powhatan Arrow.” A small residential and business community is depicted in the background.

    My wife has decided that she would like to donate that painting to the community depicted in the painting, so that the painting will finally rest where it truly belongs. Can you help us on this matter?

    My father, Arnold VanHorn, saw your article in the crossroads magazine about the book written by Ken Williams titled “rustic reflections some folksy stories”. Do you know where we can buy a copy of this book? Thank you very much for your help.
