History Of The Great Kanawha Valley [West Virginia] With Family History And Biographical Sketches. A Statement Of Its Natural Resources, Industrial Growth And Commercial Advantages - Brant, Fuller & Co. The picturesque Kanawha valley spans Fayette, Kanawha, Putnam, and Mason counties in West Virginia with Charleston resting in its mid-section. The valley's Kanawha river runs 98 miles to its junction with the Ohio river at Point Pleasant. Volume I opens with the early history of the valley, from pre-historic mound builders, to the Cherokees, to the early settlers including the Ingles-Draper settlement. Notable historic spots and events, plantation life, Daniel Boone, Lord Dunmore, the murder of Cornstalk, a chronological record of border events, and much more are covered in this volume. The bulk of Volume II is devoted to hundreds of brief biographical sketches, arranged alphabetically by county. This volume also covers the medical history of the valley from 1790-1890, Point Pleasant, Fayette County, Kanawha County, Putnam County, Mason County, and banking institutions.
