West Virginia Beckley
Another West Virginian in exile in the Old Dominion is Paul C. Shirley of 10 College Circle Staunton, Virginia. On June 5, Shirley writes: "I have just read several hundred clippings of your column. They were saved for me by my niece, Mrs. J.P. Collins, Beaver, West Virginia.
Shirley Mentions he would like to contact any descendants of the late Price Gwinn. This family once lived on the road from Red Sulphur Springs to Greenville not far from where the road from Forest Hill now connects. Price Gwinn married Alice Ballengee, daughter of William Henry Harrison Ballengee who lived just northwest of New Hope Methodist Church. Mrs. Gwinn had a brother who was a Methodist minister.

Price and Alice Gwinn had about a dozen children. Paul Shirley attended public school with these Gwinn Children at the old Glenwood School. That schoolhouse is now a dwelling in the sight of the Forest Hill road as it runs from Indian Creek at the M.A. Belcher place. Some names of the Price Gwinn children were Homer, George, Edna, Nellie, John, Lina, Paul, Ross and Gordon.
When they came to school the oldest was in front while the youngest one brought up the rear. That bunch of children looked like a caravan coming out of a pine thicket! In order to better distribute their lunch they carried five dinner buckets, two children to each bucket.
