    Re: jesse james in wv

    Well, fellers,

    Do any of your family members remember any tree or rock carvings that could be checked out?

    Rock art is my thing! Let me know!

    Thanks,

    Re: jesse james in wv

    Hi, i'm new at this, this is a wonderful place I have enjoyed it so. I live in Tucker County were the snow is getting deep. I once had a old neighbor lady that swore jessie james come though here, which at that time St. George was the county seat and town. This is the oldest settlement in Tucker County. Her story was also that when he came though here that he had hid sum of he's money in a cave around here, she said she would not tell where because it was to dangerest for anyone to get. They had also visited with some of her family. I always wondered why wouldn't he have taken it with him. She's in the resthome now with old timers or i would ask for you. Good luck with your search

    Re: jesse james in wv

    Hi all..

    I just stumbled on this thread. My mom (recently passed away) was a Burdette from Clay county. My great grandparents lived on the Elk about a mile above Porters Creek around the turn of the century. That property is still in the family. There used to be quite a community at Porters Creek but there is nothing there now but nice bottom land. My grandmother told me of a safe being washed away into Porters Creek that was never found (supposedly) but I've never heard the tale of any relationship to the James'. Someone in the family has done some extensive genealogical work and that has never come up. Some of my fondest memories are of the Burdette family reunion on the hilltop not far from Porter's Creek.

    Re: jesse james in wv

    A silver bar sounds wonderful! Is there any way that you can take it to the local University that has a geology department and have someone do analyses on your bar? Of course, it's probably got collector's value, so maybe the best thing would be to have someone appraise it?

    After checking the date on the post, have you done anything with the bar yet?

    Sincerely,
    Cavers5

    I live not far from Barboursville, and if the James Gang stash is within 50 miles the DFX will be sure to sniff it out!!! It was said that he was going to rob the bank here in Point Pleasant, but the getaway would be to difficult with the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers would slow him down.

    Got ties to Webster Co . Family just up the creek from me came from there . They had an old granny that lived with them when I was a kid and spent a lot of time there . When she got in her cups she would tell us of Jessie and some of his gang spending time at the farm she lived on as a 'hired girl' before they robbed the bank in Huntington . Her bonafides was a holed gold coin on a leather thong around her neck for her 'buryin'money . Purportedly given to her by one of the gang members for an 'accommodation'.
    Other stories she told us checked out through the family I married into down there . They strangely remained silent about that one even though one bil named his firstborn son Jessie James .
