REMARKABLE GROUP OF FIVE
We present to our readers this week
a very true likeness of a somewhat
remarkable group picture which was
taken at the first annual reunion of the
Plymale family and all their
connections by blood or marriage near
Yellowtown on August 30, 1902. They
Plymale family is one of the oldest and
best in the county and are noted for
their progressiveness and ability. The
reunion marked the first annual
gathering of this family, but
Providence permitting it will not be the
last. During the course of the day these
persons were grouped and the picture
we present in this issue was taken.
The group, while a five generation
one, is broken at one link in the chain
of descent, a daughter having been
removed by the hand of Death and her
place is supplied by her husband.
The eldest person in the picture is
Mrs. Rebecca E. Plymale aged 84
years, who makes her home with her
son, James A. Plymale, the produce
dealer, living on Third avenue in this
city. Her other sons are John A.
Plymale, our efficient and capable
county treasurer, who is filling his trust
with much ability, and Eugene
Plymale, a successful business man of
Cleveland. A daughter, Rhode E.
Plymale, who became the wife of
Squire John A. Martindale, is dead.
The next person in the order of
descent is Mrs. Martindale, and her
place was taken by her husband, Squire
Martindale. He is one of our county's
best known citizens, a successful
farmer and a highly respected
gentleman, living about three miles
from Addison in the vicinity of
His son, Hugh Martindale, comes
next in the family tree. Mr. Martindale
is a pharmacist located at Milton, W.
Va., and one of that city's most
Fred Martindale, son of Hugh, is,
like his father, in the drug business at
Anstead, W. Va., and is doing well.
His son, Irwin Martindale, aged 5,
stands for the fifth generation in this
remarkable group and we hope he will
grow up to equal his line of progenitors
in a successful career.
It is an occurrence somewhat rare
when members of one family in direct
descent for five generations stay the
destroying hand of death for so long a
time and we are sure that we voice the
sentiments of our many readers in
wishing the principals in this picture
and all their relatives who saw it taken,
a long and happy life, with peace and
prosperity at the end and may they live
to enjoy many more such happy
gatherings as was that of the clan of
Plymale on August 30, 1902.
