Thin place wan "laid out" by Kobcrt
Humphrey in the year 1790, and wan
mimed West Alexander in honor of his
wife, whose maiden name waa Martha
Alexander. In laying out the town, Mr.
Humphrey aligned a portion of ground
in the northern part of it to l>e used perpetually
an a commons for the use of the
inhabitant*. He gave thin an a free gift.
The town in situated on the National
road, equidistant between Washington
and Wheeling, and by Shriver's survey,
is 1,792 feet above Potomac tide-water.
It now contains about 500 inhabitant.
Ita growth wan Mow and steady until
1811, when, on Wednesday, the 4th day
of May, it waa visited by a destructive
tire, which consumed over twenty dwelling
houses and other building*. tf'heae
buildings were in a few.years replaced by
more modern structures. Jlobcrt Humphrey,
proprietor of tlie town.died on the

' ciWRCIIta AND MINISTERS.
Tin's place and vicinity was first setI
Ifd by "Scotch Presbyterians." The
tirst noted minister of the Presbyterian
Church hero was Kev. John Brice, who
was its pastor from 1790 until 1809. He
died August 20,1811. His successor was
the Kev. Joseph Thomson, who administered
to the spiritual wants of his
charge until 1824, when he removed to
Logan county, Ohio, where he died a few
yearn ago at the age of ?SG years. In 1828
the Kev. Johu McCluskey received a call
from the congregation, and was installed
and continued in the pastorale until April
1854, when tho Kev. Win. 11, Lester, of
Long Island, New York, became its pastor,
nnd has faithfully nerved them in
that capacity for 22 years, and fully
merits tho tribute of "Well done, good
and faithful servant."
The Associated Reformed Presbyterian!
had a church at West Alexander, over
which Rev. Alexander McCoy officiated
us pastor in 1800. IIi? successors wero
Kev, John Patterson and Kev. JoBeph
Shaw in 1845. During Mr. Shaw's pastorate,
the churnh# becarao scceders and
afterwards "United Presbyterians,"
whose pastor was Kev. Jonas Thornton.
It lias now for its pastor tho Kev. Marcus
Ormoud, who has had charge of the
congregation some four years and who is
a zealous energetic worker in the cause
of his Master. The Methodists have as
their minister the present year tho Kev.
Cummins. Their membership is small in
pointof number but in point of Christianity
nnd morality,good. In giving a history
of the Presbyterian Church a very
important omission occurs. In the year
1845 a nortion of the anti-slavery element
of tho congregation dissented, and
formed n new church under the name of
the "Free Presbyterian Church." In
1800 they erected a neat church edifice
and had as their fir?f minister, the Rev.
l.S. Pogue. In afewyears their number
being decimated by removal* and deaths,
and slavery having beeu abolished by the
results of the "rebellion," their organization
was abandoned, and a largo majority
of them "have returned to their hrst
Jove*' and are active co-workers "in season
and out of season," in everything
pertaining to the church and its inter*
?ssta,?)(>iritually and temporally. The Presbyterian
Church has been lately frescoed
and otherwise handsomely fitted up, and
will compare favorably with many of
(he modern churches of the cities. Tho
U. P. Church built in 1872 atr a cpst of
some $19,000, rellects credit on its architect,
(Mr. S. IT, Howard, of Wheeling)
and is quito an ornament to our
"Borough."
SCHOOLS.
The first common school was opened
and taught by Mister Kobinson,
about the vcar 3800. The next teacher
wasSamnel K. Magel, who taught some
years previous to 1810. The other teachers
who have been engaged in that
capacity here at different periods, were
as follows: Gilbert Marshall, ThomaA
J. Uolliday, John Gordon, William
Dickey, George McDonald, Miss Jane
Pollock, Miss A. C. Bell and .[pines McICIroy.
These parties were all proficient
in teaching the young idea how to shoot,
and wc know from practical experience
that the latter knew how to "wield the
birch." We have a convenient public
school house, divided into two depart*
menu, which will accommodato 120
scholars comfortably. The school has
J?een under the superintendance of T. B.
McCain, (a gentleman of refinement and
scholarly attainments,) for the last year.
The Academy was first (Spened in 1829,

pal, and Mr. Thomas Cratty as awdistant
teacher, and it proved a success. In 1854
the present building was erected, and occupies
a very prominent position in the
western suburbs of the "borough." It is
now under tbo supervision.ol the Rev.
Willimn II. Lester, arid Mis* Marv Pollock,
assisted by Mr. J. AT. Sprouts, and
from their known literary attainments
and capacity for imparting instruction
must prove a success.
I*OSTMA8TERS.
Jn tlie year 1809. Mr. Maine*. Stephenson
was appointed Postmaster (the first
one), and held the ofGce up to tho time of
his death, which occurred on the 18th

MERCHANTS "-i\ .
In the year 1801 the first store waA
opened by John Craig, and hU ledger
shown lie kept his.accounts in "pounds,
shilling and pence." Since that time the
following named persona and firms have
engaged in the mercantile business with
varyjngsuccess: James Stephenson, John
Maves, John Alexander, George Wilson,
John Qftllaher, G. W. A W. B. Hall. Hall
A Waddle, James T. MoVay A Co., A.
K. Howe, Bryant A Craien,' McVar A

in business here aro as follows: Yates A
Anderson, Dr. 8. A. Craig (drug store),
Murray A Bro., W. A. Barry, Porter A
hunmons, M. Daugherty A Son, J. 8
. Waltz. These firms are all fair dealing,
reliable gentlemen, and do a safe business.
In the evly settlement of the place the
merchant received his goods in about six
Keeks from the time of their purchase in
* mladclphia, at a cost of from $8 to $10
j*r hundred for transportation. Now
tuey are brought out in something like
-"hours by the "Iron Horse" at a cost of
oj cent* per hundred.
TAVKRKS.
The first tavern opened in the town was
by Duncan Morrison in 1797, who hid for
R0AD8.
The Pioneor road from Philadelphia to
Wheeling waa made'.about the rear 1790.
In .laying out this road the vfewera did
not act upon the .principle that "the
furtheat round waa the neareit," aa they
always went straight over the highest
hilia, instead of windiog them. The road
not being macadamized, consequently in
the aprfng of the year waa almost impassible
on account of the depth of the
mud, and it waa wltK difficulty that the
teamsters could make more than" six or
eight miles a day, and were often compelled
to "double teams."
In the year 1810 this "Old Wheeling
Road," aa it waa called, waa superceded
by the "National Road." Wnen the
civil engineers located this road and
drove down their stakes, ehowlng where
the road was to be made, and walnut
trees to be taken up by the roots and cuts
to be made, perhaps 15 or 20 feet deep, it
waa thought to be a matter of impossibility
to accomplish aurh an undertaking,
and many of the old citizens raid
"It would exhaust the treaaury of the
world to complete It t" When the road
waa finished in 1818-19 and wagons passed
over the road at the rate ol 26 or 30
miles a day, they thought Iheneplut ultra
of human improvement had been attained.
RAIROAD AMD TELEGRAPH OFFICE.
In 1851 a charter waa obtained from
Louisiana, Washington, D. 0., Missouri:
Illinois, and ono from tho "Isle of Man;"
thus showing an aggregate of 3,843 couples
married by the teven magistrates and
the two. ministers named from 1799 to
July 4. 1870. In looking over these
"records" we find quite a number of
prominent citizens of the city of Wheeling,
some of whom have paused away and
gono ''where there is neither marrying
nor giving in marriage," we see the
names of Hon. James liurley, Lord G.
JTnghes, Jacot) Hornbrook, Hon. J. H.
Good, William IT. Caldwell: Esq., and a
host of others of the "Nail City." In
passing allow mo to say that John C.
Hervey, Esq., who contributed officially,
to swell the number of the happy parties,
"still lives," and worthily fills the office
of "Superintendent of the Public Schools"
in the city of Wheeling.
west alexander cemetery.
This beautiful "City of the Dead" is located
a Bhort distance north of tho
borough, and was incorporated August 31,
1871. It contains ten acres, and was purchased
by the company from W. A. Hagerty
at a cost of $300 per acre. It Is
handsomely laid ofFaml embellished with
a variety of evergreens, and tho view
from the highest point is grand and imposing.
The first burial was in the fall
of 1871, that of Thomas McConn, Esq.,
who a short timo before his death requested
that it should bo noted on his tombstones
that he had the honor of being the
firtt tenant of the new cemetery. Suffice it
to say, that his executors complied with
his grave request, Its first officers were:
Thomas Frazier, Esq., President; Jool
Truesdell, Secretary and Treasurer;
Board of Directors?Samuel Kimptfns,
William Armstrong, E. Buchanan, Wm.
Reed, E. Brownlee, David Blaney, Joel
Truesdell, James Todd, and Alexander
McClearv. Esq.
Tlio fiict that no license id inquired
in the Slate of Pennsylvaniaaccount*
for the large number of
"lovyers" who come to this "Gretna
Green of America" to have their happiness
consummated. From these records it
appears that of the 400 married by
Joseph Alexander, 120 were from the
city of Wheeling; of the 930 married by
Isaac Mayes, 2?2 were from the same
city; of the 007 by John Sutherland, S60
were from the same place; of the 200 by
William S. Alexander, 70 were from the j
city of Wheeling; (we have not been in-1
formed as to how many oi the parties!
married by the Rev. gentleman 'above I
named were from the city of Wheeling).
Of the 1071 married by Joseph P. Mayes,
732 were from the State of West Virginla,
451 of whom were from the city of
Wheeling, 2G0 from the Stale of Ohio,
and the remainder hailing from the following
States: Massachusetts, Vermont,
New York. Pennsylvania, Kentucky,
Treasurer, Samuel kimmina, Street Commissioner,
Christopher Sheldon;- Secretary,
J. F. Mayes; High Constable, James
F. Sutherland.
JUSTICES OFTHE PEACE.
The Constitution of Pennsylvania of
1790 provided "That Justices of the
Peace should be commissioned ' by the
Governor, and were to hold their offices
as long as thejr behaved themselves well.
For any official misconduct they were
liable to impeachment before the Legislature."
By a change in the Constitution
in 1837-8 they were made elective by
the people and commissioned by. the
Governor for fivo yoars. The noting
Justices of the Peace, who have resided
in this place since 1799 up to the present
time, are as follows: First, Joseph Alexander,
commissioned February 9, 1799,
and who died October 1,1834. Second,
Isaac Mayes, commissioned October 6,1
1811, died July 10, 1844. Third, John
Sutherland, commissioned April, 1843,
died December 12, 185GI Fourth, William
S. Alexander, commissioned April,
1857, died January, 1874. Fifth, John
C. Henry, commissioned April,. 1800.
Sixth, Joseph G. Mayes, commissioned
April 14, 1802. Seventh, Q. S. Waltz,
commissioned April, 1874. The last two
being the acting Justices of the borough,
with jurisdiction within the county of
Washington. In addition to their other
legal business we find on examining thoir
respeffive "Records of Marriages,' that
Joseph Alexander married, wiiile in ofiicc,
400 couples; Isaac Maves, 930; John
Sutherland, 907; William 8. Alexander,
200; John Ilenrv, 72; Joseph G. Mayes,
I,071 (we also learn from the Rev. W.
II. Lester that ho has joined in marriage
over 500 couples, and Rev. Marcus Ormonth
40). and O.S. Waltz, 23.
hia iiign tho "American Eagle," and that
"he had food for man and beaat." Liquor
was then sold at the tavern by the naif
pint and gill, and it waa a customary
practice for partiea who enjojdd a social
glass to meet at the tavern and drink and
relate stories, vieing with each other in
telling marvelous incident. An old citizen
of that place was well acquainted
with two old gentlemen of tho vicinity,
who on one occasion mot at the tavern
and after taking a social drink together,
one of thorn having told a "tough one'
the other responded by saying that, "in
Ireland ho know of a gentleman who
owned an estate through which the King7*
highway passed for six miles and on either
side of the road there was a /ence five
rails high, the rails of which were tchale
bone and tho points ivory. The other replied,
"No doubt it was all true but then it
murt hat* icut a pwrr of vxoney1' This
practice was often continued for seyeral
day*. The parties who have kept hotels
I since tho lirst one opened by Mr. Morri/son
were as follows: Charles Mayers,
Zebulon Warner. John Gooding, John
Wood burn, William McCall, Solomon
Cook, Jamea Sargent, Charles Hallam,
I Mary Warner, James Bell, Silver GilfilIan,
Samuel Eeymer, James Mathers,
John Irons, Moses Thornburg, Samuel
Doak, Joseph Lawson, John iJonuai,
William F. Gordon anil William McCatcheon.
At present we have two hotels
the "Wheeling House" anil tho "Centre
Hotise." The former is conducted by our
genial friend D. B. Frazier (and pleasant
fatly) and the latter by our hospitable old
landlady Mrs. Warren and daughter.
Those who atop at either of these hotels
will find they know how to keep a hotel
"THE BOBODOHOP WE8T ALEXAHDEB"
On the 18th day of August, 1873, tho
town was incorporated (in * accordance
with the prayer of tlie petitioners), by
the Court of Quarter Sessions of the
Peace of the county of Washington, by
the name and style of "The Borough of
West Alexander." The first election for
officers of .the Borough was held on tho
23d day of September, 1873, and resulted
as follows: Burgess, 8atndel Kimmins;
Council, Christopher Sheller, Thomas
Frazier, William C. Anderson, Samuel

the Legislature of Pennsylvania for the
construction of a railroad from Hemp*
field township, in the county of Weit
Moreland, to the State line between
Pennsylvania and Virginia. On the 24th
day of May, 1862, the first ground was
broken on the line a few yards east of the
depot at this place. It was chartered
under the name of tho MHempfield Railroad
Company." Some live or six years
ago it was purchased by the B. A 0. ii. R.
Co., and is now called the Wheeling,
Pittsburg & Baltimore Railroad Co. The
first passenger car ran as far as West Alexander
on the 4th day of July, 1850. Two
daily trains now (each way) between
Wheeling and Washington, a distance of
23 miles. The road is in good order; the
cars handsomely and comfortably arranged,
and its officers gentlemanly and
polite. They are doing a fair business,
and when they make the connection with
the Connellsville road it will be the best
paying road in tbe country. The depot is
kept by our genial friend, J. R.Bell. The
Western Union Telegraph office is in the
same building, and Is operated by Mr. S.
Bell, Jr., who attends promptly to all
business in his department, and if he is
notable to put a girdleround the earth in
forty minutes, will at least attend to your
business with "dispatch."
MECBAVICfl.
We muBt not omit the mechanic*
of our borough. They are as follows:
Three carpenters, two blacksmiths, one
wagon maker, three painters, one marble
worker. ,two shoemakers, one baker and
confectioner, one saddle and harness
maker, eight mantua makers and milliners.
two cigar makers, one tin and
sheet iron worker, one livery stable, and
nna iimlurliil/nr TIiAM IMFtlM SM ill
good workmen in their several branches
of business, and 'good, moral, indnstrlona
citizens.
MORALS/
In a moral point of view, the borough
of West Alexander is almost without an
exception. There la not a drop of spirituous
liquors, beer or alo sold in the place,
and it has long been proverbial for ita
order-loving and moral inhabitants. Relieving
the history and incidents set forth
to be in the main correct, and as they
were handed down "frotii aire to aov" It
wo have "extenuated or set down aught
in malice," we-hopeto be forgiven, knowing
that "to err is human, to forgive divine."
