Dear Editor,

I have just spent the past two hours browsing the stories and photos on your site. What a joy!

My Dad was born at the end of Rush Run, a few miles from Grantsville. My roots run deep in Calhoun County since several generations of my family lived there. My Parsons, Cottrell, and related families spent their lives in the hills and hollows of Calhoun County.

I even found some stories on your site about some of them. Thank you for sharing with me.

I live in Idaho, and have for most of my life, but Southeast Ohio and Calhoun County, West Virginia will always be my home.
