Welcome to Cole Branch

Welcome to Cole Branch of Harts Creek, Lincoln County, WV. The tributary is reportedly named for C. Crane & Company, a timber firm active locally at the turn of the century. My great-great-grandfather Bill Brumfield once lived on a farm shown at the center of this photo. My great-grandparents, Pat Kirk and Eva Brumfield, were married here in 1911. My great-great-great-uncle Enoch Adkins built the house shown to the left in the 1920s. Photo taken on 2 April 2017.
