HISTORY OF BELMONT AND JEFFERSON COUNTIES. PAGE 321
In 1847 the dwellng house of Dr. William Folger and another dwelling built in connection with it on West Main street, south side were totally consumed by fire. The dwelling connected with the doctor's house, was occupied s a carpenter's shop, and the fire commencing within it among shavings and dry lumber, enveloped the buildings in flames in a few moments. So sudden was the destruction of the buildings that only a few articles of the doctor's household goods were saved.
