OLD WOODSMAN DIES EASTER
Webster Springs April 2
The master woodsman who so typified the "free mountaineer" that his figure was portrayed in bronze on the West Virginia state-house grounds, died last night in his home.
Eli "Rimfire" Hamrick, 77 year-old forrester, hunter, and guide, had been ill for 2 weeks. He had lived in virtual retirement for the last two years.
Tales of Rimfire's exploits, ------- ran for Republican nomination to House of Representatives in Webster Co.,----- catch phrase, "You have me there in bronze, now send me there in person."-------
Rimfire was born in Bergoo, Webster Co., WV. One of 14 children born to Mr. and Mrs. Benjamin Hamrick. two brothers are Felix Hamrick of Rodnay, O., and Rev. Simpson Hamrick of Salem, O., 1 sister Mrs. Cameron Beale of Elkins, WV

I found this in my grandmothers scrap book. I left alot of the middle out, I put in the most important parts. I didn't know if anyone was interested in it. I'm not sure of the date, but it is on the same page as Pre-Pearl Harbor clipping of her brothers.

If anyone would like a copy of the clipping, leave a message on the board and I will try to get it out on Mon the 22.

I would love a copy also. My Grandmother was a Hamrick ( Nellie E. ) from Webster Springs/Bergoo. Have not been able to find out much on her or her family. Would be interested if you have anything on her. She was born on Nov 30, 1896 in Webster County. She married Grover Cleveland Baughman on Feb 28, 1914.

Thanks for you info,
Dana

Did it mention if she had any children? My grandfather was Haze william Baughman, his mother being Nellie Hamrick. They were orginially from Fort Wayne, Indiana. Not sure what your obit states, but it doesn't seem to similar?

In my records Eli "Rimefire" Hamrick and Zella Cogar had only one child who died shortly after birth. The child is buried next to Rimfire in the Hamrick Cemetery in Webster Springs, Webster, WV. I do not believe Rimfire had any descendants. Does anyone have any different information?
