BARBOURSVILLE DISTRICT.
JAMES E. ERWIN, M. D.—was born in Bath county, Virginia, August 5, 1852, a son of John P. and Elizabeth W. Erwin. His father died in March, 1862, leaving four sons, of whom James E. was youngest but one, and three daughters. In July of the same year diphtheria made its first appearance in that part of Virginia as an epidemic, and in less than three weeks the brothers of James B. had fallen its victims. His mother kept her four remaining children together, until in September, .1866, she died of whooping cough followed by quick consumption. The doubly orphaned brother and sisters were now in straightened circumstances and without a natural protector. In addition to the rest of his deprivation the civil war had prevented James E. from acquiring an early education. In 1869 he sold his portion of the home estate for $110, and used the proceeds to defray the expenses incident on his attendance at a common school in Bath county for the period of ten months. He then taught his first country school, in what is now Anthony’s Creek district, Greenbrier county, West Virginia. From that time until he began the study of medicine he alternated teaching and attendance at school. September 7, 1876, he entered the Louisville Medical College, whence he was graduated with honor February 26, 1878. in June, 1879, he located at Barboursville, Cabell county, and here, by ability and close attention to the duties of his, chosen calling, he has built up a large practice. The partnership firm is: Erwin & Taylor, Physicians and Surgeons, Barboursville, West Virginia. Attend all calls, day or night. -HARDESTY'S HISTORICAL AND GEOGRAPHICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA
