Marian McQuade (1917-2008)
Marian McQuade (1917-2008) campaigned in West Virginia and later nationwide to set aside a day for grandparents. In 1973 West Virginia became the first state with a special day to honor grandparents when Gov. Arch Moore proclaimed May 27, 1973, Grandparents Day. In September 1978 the White House called her to inform her that President Carter had signed a bill designating the Sunday after Labor Day as National Grandparents Day beginning in 1979. In 1989 the U. S. Postal Service issued a tenth anniversary commemorative envelope bearing the likeness of Marian McQuade in honor of National Grandparents Day. She was born Marion Herndon in Caperton and later lived in Oak Hill.

  History of $2 Bill
History of $2 Bill
First of all have you ever seen a $2 dollar bill?

Back of $2 Dollar Bill



The reason the $2 Dollar bill is of interest to members of Art's List is the picture on the back. Former U.S. President Thomas Jefferson is featured on the obverse of the note. The painting The Declaration of Independence by John Trumbull is featured on the reverse. The design on the obverse (excluding the elements of a Federal Reserve Note) is the oldest of all current U.S. currency having been adopted in 1929; the reverse is the second oldest design having been adopted in 1976. If you look close at the names in this painting you will see some very familiar names; Hewes (Hughes), Livingston, Hall. We know that Hews connects to our Hughes on WV Route 87. I am still researching the Livingstons and Halls. A key to the names is included in this document.

Cecil Dale Roseberry (Smilin Dale) and his brother Lovell Lee "Bob" Roseberry were popular "hillbilly music" artist. They appeared on several radio programs and made many public appearances. They were on their way to becoming big stars. This dream was cut short when Cecil Dale was killed in a car wreck in Grundy, Virginia on 19 September 1941. Entertainers as a way to keep in touch with their listeners, keep their fans updated on what the artist was doing, where their next public appearace was going to be often wrote newsletters. They also wrote little books about themselves and songs and music they had written. These books were mailed out to the listeners. The cost of the books was a nominal amount. (usually just enough to cover postage) The request for these newsletters and books was a way to let keep the station manager informed of the artist popularity. After "Smilin Dale was killed in the car wreck people wanted to know what happened and how his family was getting along. In response to those request Bob wrote a small pamphlet about the life of his brother "Smilin Dale Roseberry". The book contained a short bio of Dale's life and some of the songs and poetry that he and Cecil Dale wrote. This booklet was mailed to listeners of their radio programs.

Anna Jarvis - Founder of Mother's Day

A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother—and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment.
—Anna Jarvis.
Anna Jarvis - Founder of Mother's Day A printed card means nothing except that you are too lazy to write to the woman who has done more for you than anyone in the world. And candy! You take a box to Mother—and then eat most of it yourself. A pretty sentiment. —Anna Jarvis.
The modern Mother's Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis in Grafton, West Virginia, as a day to honor mothers and motherhood; especially within the context of families, and family relationships. It is now celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, some of which have a much older tradition than the modern holiday (e.g. dating to the 16th century in the UK). Father's Day is a corresponding holiday honoring fathers.

The holiday eventually became so commercialized that many, including its founder, Anna Jarvis, considered it a "Hallmark Holiday", i.e. one with an overwhelming commercial purpose. Anna eventually ended up opposing the holiday she had helped to create.

Baden Store on WV Route 87
Baden Store on WV Route 87
On WV Route 87 in the 1940s and 1950s, Baden Store on Baden Ridge, Lloyd and Minnie Casto's at Gunville, and the Rolling Store which came through every Wednesday, were the only places to buy the staples of life. Going to the store was a treat.
Dad would hitch up the team about once a month and the family would go to the store. All of the other necessary things of life - salt, sugar, coffee, store bought candy, tobacco and chicken feed were bought at these stores. The chicken feed came in beautiful cotton print sacks. I have had a many a dress and quite a few pair of bloomers made from those feed sacks.
The Rolling Store was a semi-truck with shelves that held canned goods, and all of the other things we needed. If you wanted something special you would order it and the next week the Rolling Store would deliver it. When I went to Longview School the teacher would let us have recess when the Rolling Store came by; you could buy the world with a nickel back then. I was reminded in an email the other day that the 'ROLLIN STORE" was run by John Morgan. I did not remember his name just the fact the store came from Galpolis, Ohio.
