From William T. Price's Historical Sketches of Pocahontas Co, WV (reprinted by McClain Publishing, Parsons, WV, 1963; originally published by Price Brothers, Marlinton, WV, 1901):
"Henry Dilley went over to John Sharp's, the early settler of Frost, often enough to persuade his daughter Margaret to have him for better or worse, and they were happily married and settled on Thorny Creek, and as long as Dilley's Mill will be known his name will not be forgotten. Mr. Dilley never doubted the truth of the Bible - especially that place in Genesis where it speaks of the ground bringing forth 'thorns and thistles.' He had enough of these things to contend with on his Thorny Creek land, where he settled, opened up a home, and built a mill - one of the best of its kind at that day..."
