  • Notes 
    • Uncle Harry Litteral, 89, one of the best known and well loved citizens of the Big Sandy Valley, died at the home of his son, Willie Litteral, in Williamsons, W. Va., Tuesday, January 1, after a brief illness. "Uncle Harry" was born in Johnson County where he spent a long and useful life. His imposing figure and his hearty laugh and jovial disposition distinguished him in and made him popular in any gathering, and was extensively known to the older generation of people throughout the Big Sandy Valley. For many years he conducted a general merchandise store at the mouth of Miller's Creek now owned by the Consolidation Coal Company and known as Van Lear, and conducted a prosperous business. Later he spent a few years in Catlettsburg engaged in the shoe business. He is survived by Henry Litteral and Willie Litteral of Williamson, W. Va., with whom he had made his home in latter years, and many other close relatives and numerous friends in this section.
      Funeral services were held last Thursday at the mouth of Buffalo and burial followed in the old Bill Darby Preston Cemetery at that place.
