Abstracts from early newspaper articles with a connection to Berkeley County, Virginia/West Virginia
and what was later referred to as the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. Berkeley County was created by an
act of the House of Burgesses and formed from the northern third of Frederick County, Virginia, in 1772. On January 8, 1801, Jefferson County was formed from Berkeley County's
eastern section, and on February 9, 1820, Morgan County was formed from Berkeley's western section.
Note: This information was extracted from the newspapers and is only as good as the
editors/reporters who wrote the information (i.e., errors in spelling, dates, locations, etc.). Often, it is
not the entire article and isn?t always verbatim; all exact wording is within quotation marks. However, all
names are exactly as they appeared in the newspapers, even though they may be misspelled. There may be additional
information in the newspapers mentioned (although all effort has been made to include all names, dates and
locations of those with a connection to the area); it is being offered here to provide a starting point for your research. Please note first names were not always given and exact locations were not always available; for example if there is a city listed here, such as Great Falls, but no state included,
then it wasn?t in the newspaper article and couldn?t be determined because there may be more than one city in the U.S. with that name. For cities that are recognizable and in which there is only one, i.e., Baltimore (Maryland),
Richmond (Virginia) and the like, the state wasn?t always included ? some of the more recognizable cities and their states are listed at the end for reference. All references to Berkeley County are to West Virginia, not South Carolina
(where a Berkeley County also exists) and all references to Martinsburg are for Berkeley County, not any other Martinsburg in the country. For more information on the newspapers, see the newspaper section at the end - note: not all
newspapers have additional information; therefore, research is being done to see if these newspapers are available. It is likely they are all available on microfilm at the Library of Congress and many of them through the
Family History Center?s microfilm library.
If there is no date given in the description of the events, one cannot automatically assume the event occurred the same date as that of the newspaper entry. Often, the newspaper article will say last
Tuesday, today, yesterday or other words that can indicate the date, based on the date of the newspaper entry. Other times, it will just have to be presumed the event occurred within a short time of the newspaper entry. All dates
given after the abbreviations for the newspaper are the dates of appearance in the paper, not the event date. If there is a question mark in parentheses following a name or location, it means the copy was so poor it was difficult to
read; the best interpretation of the characters is included. Please also note some of the information in the transcriptions may be ?distasteful? to some readers (explanation of injuries suffered in an accident) and can occasionally be
?politically incorrect,? but since it is history, it is being presented here in that light.
There is a website where you can determine the actual date for ?last Sunday? or the day of the week it was for a certain date — check out this page. Enter the number of the month, the date and the year and
click on Update — for example, enter 7 4 1906 and the date converter will tell you it was a Wednesday. Therefore, if someone married last Sunday, you can presume the actual marriage date was July 1. If it said "a week ago Sunday," the marriage date would have been

- STEIGHT, George E. of Sleepy Creek mountain is being hunted in connection
with the killing of U.L. CRAWFORD, a member of the West Virginia State constabulary. Transcriber's note —
In this newspaper article, the name was STEIGHT; in an article in the same newspaper the next day after
STEIGHT was found, his name was spelled SPEIGHT. This excerpt will be written with the spellings as they
appear in the two articles.
Clashes which have occurred in Morgan and Berkeley counties for a week culminated
June 21 in the killing of CRAWFORD. The trooper's body, riddled with bullets, was found at daylight on
Sleepy Creek mountain by J.F. HESSE, Berkeley County commissioner, who with 100 men was hunting for Crawford.
George F. STEIGHT's coat, covered with blood, was found near CRAWFORD's body. Following the discovery, a
search began for STEIGHT because CRAWFORD had gone to STEIGHT's home the day before with three officers to
serve a warrant on the mountaineer, charging him with threatening the life of George KEESECAUER, an
auctioneer who had the day before gone to STEIGHT's home to sell the place for taxes and had been driven off
the place by STEIGHT with a shotgun. Soon after KEESECAUER left, STEIGHT disappeared into the woods. The
three officers who accompanied CRAWFORD to the SLEIGHT home say CRAWFORD, tired of waiting for the mountaineer
to return, started out on a path through the woods saying "he proposed hunting his man up." Several shots
were heard by CRAWFORD's fellow offices at 8 p.m. on June 20. The body was later found about 300 yards from
the STEIGHT home. The dead trooper was from Roanoke, Virginia.
It was at first thought the crime had some connection with the shooting by
moonshiners on Monday of Special Officer C.M. WILSON of West Virginia, when a raid was being made on alleged
moonshiners. WILSON was so badly wounded that it was necessary to amputate both legs, which was done in a
Martinsburg hospital. Because of the possible connection first thought between the two shootings, farmers
all over the Sleepy Creek mountain neighborhood armed themselves with shotguns and rifles and joined in the
hunt for the killer of Crawford, "declaring that the moonshiners must be taught respect for the law." WILSON
was shot at the home of John and "Happy" WEIGLE on Sleepy Creek mountain. When he and other officers went to
the place to serve a warrant for assault on one of the brothers, there was no one home. The officers waited
for a time in the clearing which surrounds the cabin when suddenly there were shots from the woods and
WILSON fell. The other officers threw themselves face down on the ground and "so they say, saw Claud FILES
on the edge of the woods." Files was handcuffed and taken to Martinsburg. He said he had nothing to do with
the shooting of WILSON and was released on bail on a charge of assault — WP 22 Jun 1924. G.E. SPEIGHT,
a farmer wanted in connection with the killing of U.C. CRAWFORD, was shot to death by a posse on June 22 in
a battle lasting more than six hours. SPEIGHT had barricaded himself in a barn and was found fatally wounded
with seven bullet wounds in his body. He died a few minutes later — WP 23 Jun 1924.
