I’ve been getting pop up ads that are for some amazon gift card raffle on your site. I just tried 3 times to read some Ed Haley stuff and could not opt out of these pop ups. Not sure if you are aware. Wound up just giving up. Also wondered if there is a way to read the Haley stuff in a chronological order. Any search I do brings the entries up as newest entry first, then I have to go back through pages of older posts. This is what I was doing (going through ‘older posts’)when the ad interrupted. I’ve never made it more than 4 pages back, haven’t gotten to the beginning.

Thé pop up ads are annoying but they are how WordPress (a free site) is mostly funded. Nothing I can do about it. Go down the left column to the earliest entries for 2012 and start reading forward on the Haley stuff OR search for In Search of Ed Haley 1, 2, 3, etc. Good luck!

I am looking for information about the Giles, Fayette, and Kanawha Turnpike, which is why I am on this older post of yours. I live in Jumping Branch, WV down below Beckley. Part of the turnpike is on property that my Dad and Mom just auctioned off not long ago and where I grew up. I now live down below that property near the end of the road. There used to be an old mill on Jumping Branch Creek. I live just above that sight. Do you know anything about this old mill? Dad gave me a couple of old buttons he plowed up near the road probably more than 50 years ago. Also my friend Alan built a home on this old turnpike on Mt. View Road, which ends up in Shady Spring. He saw ghosts of travelers. Dad named his road “THE OLD TURNPIKE ROAD.” when everyone named the roads around here in Summers County. Both have passed away in the last couple of years. I would like to make a map of this road, even though I read that there was no map available. I have made a list of some of the roads and towns it may have gone through and will make a map from those. Any ideas?
