She was born on a Stewarts Creek farm to L.D. and Columbia Snyder McVaney. lust after the family moved to another farm along the Kanawha River, near Sand Fork. Mr. McVaney died. which meant that Laura and her mother looked after the farm and family. "I went to Low Gap School-a one-room, log house heated by a wood stove: the four school trustees cut the wood. I stayed 'till the 6th grade when we moved into Sand Fork. Mother operated a boarding house and I worked as a domestic until my marriage." she said. Laura married Charles Edwin Marshall in 1896. when she was 21 years old and they lived on a Stouts Mills farm Mr. Marshall worked as a farmer and teamster and eventually be became a State Road supervisor.

Mrs. Marshall was 50 when Mrs. Van Horn was born, according to Mrs. Hall. "Mother was very fond of television but doesn't care for it anymore." Mrs. Hall said. "Now she likes to visit with people here and I read her news stories and items from GRIT. She also enjoys magazine love stories.'" Mrs. Marshall says her happiest time was when her sons Aaron and C.L. returned from World War I and World War It. respectively. The saddest time for her was when her husband died, November 18. 1953. Despite the myriad of modern conveniences which have mushroomed over the years of Mrs. Marshall's lifetime, she feels that people aren't as happy as they were when life was simpler and people came together more. Other changes? "We were more self-sufficient in the old days," she recalled. "'We canned and dried and home-preserved all our foods then. We couldn't run to the store for cottage cheese when we wanted it. We had to make it then. And we did. Hard cheese, too. I studied my school books by the light of the wood fire or by kerosene lamp. We couldn't travel too far to quickly because of bad roads and slow transportation." she said. One of the styles that hasn't changed from her younger days is the trend towards long hair and moustaches for men. "She doesn't like the pony tails and unkempt look of a lot of younger men nowadays. But men wore their hair long and had beards and moustaches when mother was young," said Mrs. Hall.

Ike Mayfield, Director of the SBA office located in Clarksburg, stated, "small business in West Virginia has contributed so much to the economy and well being of the state. The 200th anniversary of our heritage is a great time to pay tribute to the small business people for their ac- complishments and to let them know we are interested in their continued strength and success." THE PROJECT OF THE SBA office is to recognize as many of the state's small business people as possible for their outstanding leadership in the social and economic development of their community; for their independence and symbol of freedom; for their hard work and determination in their strive for success. The type business, location, size of the building, number of employees, etc., makes no difference as eacla business has its own merit and each is worthy of recognition for in- dividual contributions to society. All are urged to join with the SBA in this project by recommending the small business people in your community so SBA can present them a "Bicentennial Salute". Submit a brief narrative, outlining the history of the business, along with any photos or illustrations which will further describe the business, to the SBA Clarksburg District Office, 109 North Third Street, Lowndes Bank Building, Clarksburg, 26201, Attention: Janie Watson.
