Legend of Mamie on Mine Road 22. Mamie Thurman was a young woman living in the city of Logan in the 1930s. On June 22, 1932, her slain body was found and recovered on 22 Mine Road near Holden, WV. According to authorities at the time, her death resulted from a gunshot wound before her throat was cut from ear to ear. Found along side the body was one shoe and her purse containing $8-10. Two diamond rings and a wristwatch were still on her body, thus ruling out robbery as a motive. Local legend still thrives with Mamie's story. Some say she walks Holden 22 Mine Road. Tales of her ghostly appearances may cause one to wonder if she still cries out for justice. Since her death has never been solved, rumors have survived and some feel her ghost will continue to walk up and down the mountainside until someone finally tells the truth about her death.
