    My friend Janie Wells White from Dehue were and I were just talking about the ham salad sandwiches from Franklins. Loved them….

    Lived at McConnell WV for 34 years. Went to Logan East Junior High, then Logan High School. Graduated in 1965. Does anyone have pictures of the Gold and Blue above Logan East Junior High or Franklin’s in Logan. My uncle Charles Oney worked at Lewis Furniture Co. in Logan and on his lunch on Friday evening would come and take me and my aunt to Logan. We would shop and go to Franklins and have their ham salad sandwiches. Loved it so much.

          Barb, Knocker Chafin here. Peach Creek was home, but we looked forward to going up to Franklyns after going to the middle burg theatre. I have such great memories my life in Logan Cty.

      • Nancy Carter says:

        I think my Dad was the dentist. His office was on the second floor at 101 Stratton. I rode the bus to town too and went to movies and the Mercantile.

        • Bob Piros says:

          Nancy, I hope that you have
          a photo of your Dad that you can
          post to this site. I don’t recall what
          he looked like but I still remember
          the grinding drill he used.Probably
          in his chair from 1958-1964.
          What was his full name?

  9. Paul Sammons says:

    This reminds me of the 35mm movies we had of the family and what my Great Aunt Mary had to say about them many years ago…”I can’t watch them, I just want to reach out and give everybody a hug!”

  10. "Larry" Ellis says:

    This is such a trip down memory Lane. I actually remember playing on the red merry-go-round at Justice Grade school in 1959-60! And we still have a piece of the marble taken from the walls of the old Logan County Courthouse when they were razing it! It is now a marble top on a 150 year old antique cherry hand carved dresser! Thanks to all for sharing your photos!!!

    • Brenda White Beechner says:

      Love the pictures and have a question about one of them. There is one from B. Kirk..”Blood in WV: A caption on it says, “Hick White” Watermill or the Old McDonald Mill”. Was wondering if you might have more information about the Old McDonald Mill, like the name of the McDonald family that would have had it. I am a descendent from the McDonalds. My G Grandfather was Boliver McDonald from Crooked Creek (Logan Co) WV. I grew up there and go HOME often. Brenda White Beechner
