Former Calhouner Tim Miller MD of Kingwood, discovered this item from the website Chronicling America, published in the Wheeling Daily Intelligencer following the Civil War:

"Proceedings of the (Reorganized) Virginia Legislature in Wheeling. Discussion regarding the bill changing the place of holding courts in Calhoun county."

"Mr. Williamson said the place where the court is now held - Arnoldsburg - was the last place in America where the war would be settled, and the people would not hear of it for ten years after it was settled. There were other loyal sections in the country where courts could be organized."

"Mr. Farnsworth said he knew that these Calhoun people were aggrieved, and he thought they ought to be relieved."

"Mr. Williamson, in answer to Mr. Zinn, said that the present county seat of Calhoun was about forty miles from every place except Arnoldsburg."
