The Starcher homestead at the head of Jesse's Run,
and nearby log barn, the original family long gone

By Bob Weaver 2008

Jesse's Run is a small tributary off the West Fork of the Little Kanawha River, the highway runs between Liberty Hill (US 33-119) near Arnoldsburg to the West Fork, a few miles distance.

The stream, which empties into be West Fork below Alitzer, was named for one of early settler Phillip Starcher's descendants.

The highway is rocked, but often muddy when it rains, really muddy.

standing stone-cut cellars with cellar tops (right)
