Description:The Fall 2022 issue of GOLDENSEAL has a reflective quality to it that is reminiscent of the fall season. As the foliage falls and another growing season comes to an end, some of us may reflect back on years and memories passed. We take what we’ve learned and use this knowledge going forward to “Honor Past and Present.” The cover story is about the Mystery Stone Carver of Southern West Virginia. Gerry Milnes writes about discovering a series of headstones, all of a similar style by the same unknown carver “A. Potter” and his ongoing journey to discover just who this stone carver was. Mary Linscheid writes of Burnt Meetinghouse Cemetery, and Jonah Whiteaker writes of his time spent repairing and cleaning cemeteries with his Grandfather. In other articles, Robert Jeffries recalls fond memories of deer season with his father and the life lessons he found throughout those experiences, Ivan M. Tribe and Jacob Bapst take a look at the Death of Frank Bowen and the resulting Murder Ballad, Todd A. Hanson looks back at Campbell’s Creek in his Photo Essay “Then and Now,” Bill Mahoney recalls an impactful trip he took as a highschooler to a 1955 coal mine, Patricia Wilkins shares her research into U.S. Government Lock No. 5 and Burning Springs through family documents, Christopher Mielke tells of the Civil War era graffiti that was uncovered in the town of Beverly, Ed Michael recalls the mammoth bone he found as a young boy and his memories surrounding it, John M. Harris Jr. details Dent vs. WV, the supreme court case that resulted in the need for a license to practice medicine in the State, and Carl. E. Feather shares his visit with Morgantown’s Woodturning Rowan Brothers. In addition, this edition features an excerpt from Randy Safford’s An Act of Remembrance & Other Mostly True Historical West Virginia Stories, and state folklorist Jennie Williams talks of West Virginia Folklife Apprenticeship Program apprentice Christine Weirick and her time spent with Certified Nurse Midwife Angry Nixon.
