An unnamed local correspondent from Wewanta in Lincoln County, West Virginia, offered the following items, which the Lincoln Republican printed on Thursday, June 22, 1922:

Mr. and Mrs. P.J. Williamson entertained a number of friends Sunday, among whom were: Mrs. Rachel Adkins, Mrs. Shirlie Hankles, Mrs. Elias Williamson, Jackson Mullins, of Maynard, and Mr. Elias Williamson.

Arthur Napier and Boyd Wiley, of this place, attended singing at East Fork of Fourteen, Saturday.

Milton Nelson, of Gill, tells of finding a dead man in the Guyan river near Gill. Inquest was held by Wm. Adkins at Ranger. Dr. Crockett was called and after examination, stated that he had been dead about three months. He had very costly cuff links, and a fine bill-book. He also had insurance papers on which his name and address, John Smith, of Huntington, W.Va., appeared. His bill-book contained $2. His body was in such a bad state that not much could be told of his features, but it is believed that he was a colored man. The body was found by Sherman Nelson and his son, Milton, while out fishing.

Garrett Webb was a visitor at Wm. Webb’s Sunday.
