"I support international trade when conducted fairly, and it is a key part of our economy. But exporting our jobs is not in the best interest of American workers." In 2003, the senator introduced the ' Securing American Factory Employ- ment (SAFE) Act,' whichwould pro- vide manufacturers with relief on sev- eral fronts, including a tax break to reward companies for locating and maintaining factories in the United States; a tax credit to help companies cover the cost of providing health care for retirees; and provisions to strengthen our existing trade remedy laws. "For decades, manufacturing jobs have provided West Virginians with health insurance, pension benefits, and solid wages. Now manufacturing employment has dipped to a 41-year low," Rockefeller said. "If we are serious about keeping our jobs, then we must take action to implement a policy that shores up opportunity in our manufacturing base." Rockefeller conti nued, "Our nation cannot afford to send the jobs we have abroad, when we have people in need of work. I will fight every step of the way to preserve the jobs we have and promote the creation of new ones." JANE LEWIS MAXWELL July 17. 1767 - October 20 1835 (wife of Thomas Maxwell) Thomas died on his way to West Virginia. Great, great, great, Grandma Jane was a very sturdy lady.. She and her children moved to Harrison County from Pennsylvania. Here tl y settled in those early days (1799) When life wa ,a lot of work and not a whole lot of play. ! Her son, Lewis, helped layout the road from Jane Lew to Weston. This was before men floated logs to Creston. Lewis became a lawmaker of this Western Virginia state, While helping to open up more western gates. 1 (The Abner's (They In 1838, Lewis bought a 200 acre farm. He laid it off in lots and streets hoping not to cause alarm. Jane Lew he named it in memory of his mother. And Preston (now Weston) had been settled by Levi, his brother. first county court meeting in Weston was held in Levi Maxwelrs home..) Abner, Lewis's other brother, had settled in D(x ridge County. Abner's daughter, Amy Mary, married Jesse Lowther. Two sets of twins Abner and his wife did bring forth. (Lewis M. and Chades: Abner M. and Frances Jane) And twins are still roaming on my sister, Louella's, front porch. (grandchildren, Michelle and Matthew Stainaker) son, Lewis M. Maxwell, moved to Gilmer County and settled on Grass Run settled at Hardman. Grass Run empties into the Kanawha near Job's Ternole I Here he raised his family in the valley of the sun. All these memories pursue me from time to time, Because the thoughts of ancestors cause my life to shine. My dad, Albert Maxwell, went to school at Hardman on Grass Run. He, too, grew up in that valley of the sun. No task was too big, no person was too small, In this life, he favored them all. 1 1 1 "Never say never," was his motto in life, And this motto also became my guioe. With this motto aglow, he taught me to read That I, also, future children might lead. My dad smiles down from Heaven above Each time a child is showered with love, Leams more about his ancestors, his county, and his state, For he realizes, he will leam to march through GREAT future gates. Mary Ann Maxwell Radabaugh, May 6, 2003 (Lewis M. Maxwell was my great-grandfather. Charles Lewis Maxwell was mv grandfather. He carried the name of both twins.)
