McGraw reunion set July 17 in Saulsville - Wycoreport

Monday, July 11, 2016

McGraw's 1918 obituary.At the age of 24, John McGraw married 16-year-old Mahala/Mahalia Cozort. The young couple was married Nov. 2, 1848, at Shockley's Fork (which is now Glen White), by Gen. Alfred Beckley and initially lived on land owned by Gen. Beckley, according to historians.In 1852, John McGraw bought a tract of 100 acres for $400, from Amos Shumate, on Milam's Fork. Some historians say the couple didn't move to Wyoming County until 1853.He paid off the debt by splitting fence rails for 50 cents a day, according to "Reference Book of Wyoming County History," by Mary Keller Bowman (1894-1983).The couple had 11 children."He moved his family into a one-room log cabin, surrounded by two acres of cleared land," according to Bowman's book.Their farm averaged 200 sheep, 100 cattle, hogs, chickens and horses."In addition to the daily routine, Mahala took care of the wool, made soap, prepared food for winter and at night sewed or knitted while John mended shoes or harness, sharpened tools, and otherwise prepared for the next day's work which included grinding meal on a hand-mill which was much like a coffee grinder, except larger and heavier," according to Bowman.Over the years, John McGraw purchased additional land. He had a general store, with a post office, at Joe's Branch (the Itmann tipple site) and served as the postmaster.Later, he opened a store at Pine Grove, now Ravencliff, and established the post office in 1878, also serving as its postmaster.McGraw also had a store in Norwood, in McDowell County, for a time.He also established a sash sawmill and a grist mill.At one time, according to historians, McGraw owned 1,900 acres of land on Milam and Laurel forks, in addition to other locations.In 1866, McGraw was elected, from the 6th District, to the 7th West Virginia Legislature; but, he refused to take the "test oath," and was disqualified to serve, according to Bowman.The "test oath" was required for all attorneys, postmasters as well as elected and appointed civil officials, Bowman explained in her book.The test oath required the person to swear he'd not, "since the 20th day of June, 1863, borne arms against the United States nor against the State of West Virginia," along with promises that he'd not supported in any manner hostile opponents to the authority of the nation or the state.McGraw, however, was elected twice more, serving from 1869-71 and again in 1879, according to West Virginia Archives and History.In 1875, he served as deputy sheriff under Humphrey Hatfield.McGraw was a member of the Rockcastle Baptist Church, and transferred his membership to Pine Grove Church, w...
