BIAS, Roland Died - At his home on Guyandotte River, in Cabell County, on the 17th of May, 1875, Roland Bias, in his 82nd year of his age. The deceased was a remarkable man. He was over six feet high and straight as an arrow, a strong and robust healthy man til a few months before his death. He was full of girth, a genial companion, fond of sport, such as hunting, horse-racing, etc., and often boasting that he could beat any man West of the Blue Ridge pitching horse shoes, and throw any man down in the county. Yet withal, he was a man of tender heart and often helped those who were in distress, and very seldom refused to go security for a deserving person in trouble. He never went to school a day in his life, could not read or write, and yet was a man of good sense and of great influence in his section; was a member of the Board of Supervisors, President of the Overseers of the Poor, and an old time Magistrate. He was born in old Virginia, and moved to this country with his Father about the year 1802, when he was only nine years old. At that time there were only eleven families on the Guyandotte River from "its south to its Islands" , as it was called then, meaning to Logan Court House, all of whom and their decendants have disappeared from this part of the State. With his Father, he settled at the south of Tylers Creek on Guyandotte River near the Salt Rock, and lived in that vicinity all his life. He had been married three times surviving all his wives; had eight sons and eighteen daughters. His children, grand and great grandchildren numbered one hundred and sixty three, most all of whom now live in Cabell, Lincoln and Wayne Counties. At the time of his demise he was the oldest continuous resident of the County, having lived in this County seventy-three years. In those good old times, when game was abundant, he would spend three months every year in hunting, and would return home laden with deer, bear, coons, etc. The writer has often listened to his marvelous tales of pioneer life with intense interest and delight. His first wife was Dicy Brusfield, his second Tabitha McComas, daughter of old Joe McComas, and his third Martha Mitchell from Virginia. -Dated 19 June 1875, source unknown
