Anyone have Hardestys West Virginia Heritage Encyclopedia Vol.2? Attached is an old posting from who knows where from someone saying George Strunk Riffle m. Susanah Mccauley And George Strunk Riffle Jr. are both mentioned in it. However, the body of the text looks remarkabley familiar.
Once again, The Following is merely a post from yr 2000 from who knows where and is in no way intended to imply fact. Just curious if anyone has the text mentioned at bottom!
