Several of E.P.'s brothers also worked for the railroad - James Washington, Russell, and Walter Martin for sure. Their uncle George (brother of James Thomas) also moved to Alleghany County (Clifton Forge) and worked for the railroad. His obituaries are:

C. & O. Conductor Dies Suddenly
Funeral of G.G. Meadow to Be Held Today
[Times-Dispatch Valley Bureau.]
CLIFTON FORGE, VA., March 22, [1925]---Captain G.G. Meadows, freight conductor on Chesapeake and Ohio, whose run was west of this city, died suddenly last night from a complication of troubles of two years standing. His wife, one son, Frank, one sister, two brothers survive him.
Funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock.

My great-grandfather Nathaniel Robert Meadows was a brother of James Thomas Meadows, both sons of Madison "Matt" Meadows and Mary Ann Garten. N.R Meadows never worked for the railroad; he cut timber and was a farmer all his life as far as I know. He had two sons, Robert Clark and James Dowl. James Dowl was my grandfather.

I have been watching "Who Do You Think You Are" for several years now. I find it very interesting, most of the time. I have been researching off and on for over 40 years - my grandfather Willey (Mom's father) got me started because he used to tell us stories about his grandfather who drove a supply wagon for the Union Army during the Civil War. I have been interested ever since, and the internet has made it so much easier to search. I don't have as much time to spend on it during the summer but try to do a lot during the winter months.

I live on the east coast too (Maryland). I was born in Summers County, WV but my parents came to Maryland in 1953 when I was three years old. I have been here ever since except for three years when I was in the army.

Yes I have heard about the Indian raids at Kerrs Creek. Those people went through some rough times.
