The best part

The descendants of Andy and Rosa Chidester Edgell down on Rowels Run, actually the Village of Cremo, had a reunion Saturday at the Mt. Zion Community Park.

There were ten children in the Edgell bunch, Virgil, Junior, Veon, Irene, Blondena, Jennings, Emodee, Mona, Don and Betty. The old Edgell house is still standing down on Rowels.

Their grandparents sprung from around Doddridge and Tyler counties, Walter Vince and Mary Ellen Swiger Edgell.

The reunion has been held annually at Mt. Zion, according to Betty Edgell Smith, one of the organizers. Betty is married to Hur resident, Dale Smith of the Kerby Ridge.
