Page 8 -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathrmder --Thursday, May 20, 2004 GeraldineMarks 462-7477 Needing Rain Jack aM Martha Elizabeth Nutter Cottrill lived on Cub Fork when I attended the Cub Fork One Room School, during the 1930's and 40's. Often I watched Jack walk by the school on his way to the store to sell eggs, get a few groceries or pick up JACK COTTRILL his mail. If Jack got a sack of flour or something big he went to the store with the horse and sled. I thought these pictures might have been taken around 1900. MarthaEliza- beth Nutter Cottrill 10-18-1866 to 5-28-1945 is wearing a lovely dress with lots of embroidery work on it. Jackson Beaugard Cottrill, "Jack" 11- 23-1861 to 11-29-1943 and Martha raised their family on Cub Fork. I don't remember ever seeing Martha but according to her picture she looks like her daughter Rosetta "Rosie" Dobbins. My Gilmer County marriage book states that Jackson B. 23 (born in Doddridge County) and Martha E. Nutter, 18 ( born in Barbour County), were married Jan. 29,1885. They had two children, Rosetta Cottrill Dob- bins. and Bertha Ellen Cottrill Knapp. Rosetta married Jacob Jasper "Jake" Dobbins and Bertha married Howard Knapp. Great granddaughters of Jack and Martha, Ruth Ann Miller and Linda Frame helped me get these pictures so I could share them with my readers. Bertha Ellen Cottrill Knapp, Ruth Ann and Linda's grandmother died during the flu epidemic during WWI. Martha and Jack raised their mother Muriel. Martha, Jack, Bertha Ellen, and Muriel are all buried in the Crooked Fork Baptist Church Cem- etery.

Cousin Imogene Minney Miller plans to fly in from California for the reunion. Last Saturday I attended the Glen- ville State College graduation. Two grandaughters graduated, Rachel Marks Adams and Leslie Marks Turner. A neighbor Donna Boggs also graduated from Glenville. My grandson Matthew Marks graduated from Marshall University on Sat. too. The water is getting low in our creeks, a nice rain would be nice, but I sure hope we don't get a flood.
