Eli "Rimfire" Hamrick (1868-1945) was an frontiersman whose family helped settle central West Virginia. Records indicate that he and his brother posed for the statue of The Mountaineer on the capitol grounds in Charleston. John W. Davis, the 1924 Democratic presidential candidate, said the 6'3" Hamrick had a face as sad as Lincoln's. He campaigned unsuccessfully for the state senate in 1932 with the slogan, "You put him at the capitol in bronze, now put him there in person." He was born in Webster county and lived there and in Randolph county.
