Biography* Mrs. Jane Huffman. Mrs. Jane Huffman, one of the pioneer citizens of Nicholas county, died at her home at Mt. Nebo on Friday, February 6, 1914. Mrs. Huffman was born at Alderson, Greenbrier county, on March 7, 1824, and was at the time of her death, aged 89 years, 11 months and 29 days. Her death was due to the infirmities incident to old age.

Mrs. Huffman was married in April 1848 to Mr. Joseph A. Huffman and to this union were born ten children, seven of who survive as follows: Henry C. Huffman of Pearl, Mrs. A.N. Boley, of Mount Nebo, Mrs. W.S. Thomas of Lansing, Mrs. A.D. Pancake of Kenova, Mrs. Emma Duncan of Middleport O and Mrs. C.W. Rader and Miss Laura Huffman who reside at the old home place at Mount Nebo.

Mrs. Huffman was a consistent member of the Baptist church. Her grandfather, Joseph A. Alderson founded the first Baptist church west of the Alleghany mountains located at Alderson and know as the Greenbrier Baptist Church. She united with this church in early girlhood and later moved her membership to the Fowler Knob Baptist church, of which church she was a member at the time of her death.

She is also survived by one brother, Hon. George Alderson of Alderson, and a sister, Mrs. Grey of Texas, beside 60 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren. She had resided in Nicholas county for more than 60 years.

After the funeral service at the Fowler Knob Baptist church on Sunday following her death, conducted by Rev. A.C. Ruckman, her remains were laid to rest in the family burying ground, there to await a glorious resurrection.

Mrs. Jane Huffman

"Sunset and evening star And one clear call for me, And may there be no moaning of the bar When I put out to sea."

The clear call came to Mrs. Jane Huffman nee Alderson at the home of her daughter, Mrs. C.W. Rader, of Mt. Nebo, at noon February 6, 1914, and her spirit winged its flight to be with Him whom she had loved and served for seventy seven years. Mrs. Huffman was born where the town of Alderson now stands, March 7th, 1824. She professed faith in Christ when she was thirteen years old and united with the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church, which was instituted by her grandfather, the Rev. John Alderson, the first Baptist minister to cross the Alleghenies. She came from a distinguished family, being the daughter of John and Nancy Alderson. She was united in marriage to Joseph A. Huffman, of Alderson, in 1847. Unto this union was born ten children, eight girls and two boys. She is survived by one son, Henry Clay, and six daughters, Mrs. Nancy Pancake, of Kenova, W.Va., Mrs. Emman Duncan of Middleport Ohio, Mrs. Mary E. Thomas, of Lansing, W. Va., and Mrs Martha Boley, Mrs. Malinda Rader, Miss Laura Huffman of Mt. Nebo, W.Va. She also leaves to mourn their loss one brother, Hon. George Alderson and one sister, Mrs. Katie Smith, both of Alderson.

The funeral services were conducted in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends in the Fowlers Knob Church by the Rev. A.C. Ruckman, after which her body was laid to rest in the cemetery on a beautiful eminence overlooking her old home, there to rest in peace till the morning light of the resurrection shall gleam from the east. It has not been the privilege of the writer to know a more estimable woman than Mother Huffman. She was one of the pillars of her church, and one who spent much of her life ministering to the suffering. She and her husband gave the lot on which the Fowlers Knob Church now stands, were the prominent factors in the errection of the church, and gave also the cemetery which marks her last resting place. She was true to her God and her church, and in her last years she loved to repeat that old hymn, I LOVE THY KINGDOM LORD. She was a subscriber of the Baptist Banner since its first issue. Mrs. Huffman was a woman of remarkable intelligence, and she retained her intellectual powers and youthful disposition till the last, having almost lived out four score and ten. She said to those who stood around her that she had no fears of death and like Robert Hall passed away sighing for the everlasting rest repeating that old hymn, OH LAND OF REST FOR THEE I SIGH."

"Mourn not the dead whose lives declare That they have nobly borne their part, For victory’s golden crown they wear; They rest with glory wrapped around, Immortals on the scroll of fame; Their works their praises shall resound, Their name-and everlasting name. Drop the warm tear-for Jesus wept; Sorrow shall find relief in tears, But let no secret grief be kept To waste the soul through nameless years, They rest in hope; their hallowed dust Is watched, and from the grave shall rise; Earth shall restore her sacred trust, Made all immortal for the skies."

George Alderson

M, #2738, b. 13 Nov 1833, d. 18 Mar 1924
FatherJohn 'River Jack' Alderson b. 4 Sep 1783, d. 25 Jun 1852
MotherNancy Robinson b. circa 1803, d. 9 Feb 1836
Biography* Hon. George Alderson, who was born November 13th, 1833, is the grandson of Rev. John Alderson, who settled and built his house where the Alderson Hotel now stands in the town of Alderson, W.Va., in 1777. He was the youngest son of John Alderson, known as "River Jack", who was the youngest son of Elder John Alderson, which explains the remarkable fact that a grandson of the first preacher who settled and established a charge west of the Alleghenies is yet living (1917), while great-grandchildren several times removed have passed on. George Alderson was born in the same house in which his father first saw the light, the homestead first built by John Alderson. This house was burned with valuable historical documents in 1863.

While a lad, he attended the county schools and Rev. James Remley's School near Lewisburg, and was later sent to Holland's Institute (now Holland's College) at Botetourt Springs; when this schoool ceased to be co-educational he attended the Palestine High School, just established by Prof. Oscar Stevens, a graduate of Richmond College and a noted educator.

Upon the death of his father in 1853, George Alderson inherited the old farm, a part of which he still owns and resides upon, always having devoted his life to agriculture and stockraising.

In the war between the States, he served in the Confederate Army, Co. A., 36th Bat. of Cavalry. He was detailed as orderly first to Gen. Loeing, then Gen. Williams, and for Gen. Echols, later, serving with these most of the War. He honorably discharged on account of an illness from which he suffered at times all through his life.

Mr. Alderson was twice married, his first wife being Mary J., the daughter of Maj. R.C. Hines, his second wife, Virginia, daughter of Jeremiah and Miriam (Gwinn) Stevens. Three children were born to the first union and six to the second, all of whom are dead but three; two died in childhood, four in youth were laid to sleep in the old churchyard of the Old Greenbrier Baptist Church.

Of the children (1918), Miss Emma C. is the Principal of the Alderson Baptist Academy; J.C. is President of the Guyan Valley Bank at Logan; Bernard Carroll was Professor of Latin and Greek at West Virginia University and the first Principal of the Alderson Baptist Academy; William W. was a physician of much promise and practiced in Texas; George Jr. who possessed rare literary talents, represented Monroe County in the Legislature two terms; Virginia married C.B. Rowe; Cabell and Otey died when but a few years of age.
