Hi! I am looking for information on the Shock, Gilmer Co, WV.
Are there any local newspapers about1880-1940's on Shock (town),Gilmer Co.,WV??. Also are they any local graveyards around Shock area?? I believe my great grandmother Martha Dobbins Cottrill is poss. buried nearby. My grandfather Alfred Cottrill was born Jan.13,1888 in Shock, Gilmer Co.,WV. Alfred was born on January 13,but his birth year on documents he lists two to three differents years. The years he used are 1888,1890 & 1891.He lived there until he was 27-or more in the 1915's in Shock. Alfred's mother is Martha Dobbins who is d/o Thomas Dobbins & Emsy Shock. I am looking for proof of her parents, history of Shock(town)& any information on the Cottrills,Shocks,&Dobbins families. Thank you for your time.
