George W. Belknap

The Gilmer Free Press

George W. Belknap

Age 103, of Cedarville, WV departed this life November 04, 2014 in Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, WV.

He was born in Old Field Fork in Lewis County, outside of Weston, WV, March 01, 1911, son of the late Dyer and Dora Bennington Belknap.

The family soon moved to Sand Fork in Gilmer County, WV.

Being about 17 years old, he worked on the bridge being built across the Little Kanawha River coming into Glenville on US Hwy 33/119.

He went from there to Harry Deckers Garage in Sand Fork for 13 years and taught himself to be an auto mechanic and drove one of the big new school buses in Gilmer County for three years.

After three years he married Hazel Greenleaf of Cedarville, WV on May 05, 1939.

Soon after he was drafted into the navy for the last two years of World War II.  When he was discharged he and his wife opened a country store and bought two large farms and raised cattle (85 to 95 heads) on them.  He put up all the hay by himself and fed it to the cattle every day without help.  They were honored for Farming For A Better Living about three years.

Hazel passed away in 1983 leaving George alone.  Because of his failing health, he went to Morgantown, WV to live with his niece, Lillian Eddy the rest of his life.  He made many friends in Morgantown during those years.  His last four birthday,  parties were held for him and pictures and write-ups were in the Morgantown Paper by Ron Rittenhouse and the Dominion Post the next morning.  Never having lived where he could eat out often, he loved it.  Every day he and Lillian went to Wendy’s where his 100th birthday party picture is placed on the wall.  To get different foods, they went to Bob Evans in Westover ever day.  He enjoyed all of the attention he got going there.  In March 2008, Secretary of State, Betty Ireland, came from Charleston to the Glenville Courthouse to present George with a certificate and medal for being the oldest active voter in Gilmer County.  He was 97 at the time.  It would take a large book to hold all of his accomplishments in his 103 years.

Friends may call 5-8 PM, Saturday, November 08, 2014 at the Ellyson Mortuary, Inc., where funeral services will be conducted at 1:00 PM, Sunday, November 09, 2014 at the Mortuary with Elder Larry Fisher officiating.

~~~ Readers' Comments ~~~


The family of Wendel Beall would like to thank everyone for their prayers, calls, kindness, support,
and love during his brief illness and death.  For three weeks in October, our lives came to a standstill
and were both the longest and shortest 3 weeks of our lives. 

To those who brought food, medical supplies, newspapers, anything that we could imagine that we didn’t even know we needed, we will forever be grateful.

To those who helped dig the grave and cover it after, thanks just isn’t enough.

To those who sat with us, not needing entertained, just to offer support and do whatever needed to be done, you will never now much it meant to us.

To the Hospice Care nurses and support staff, there are no words that can express our gratitude for
all your compassion and caring in this excruciating situation. 

To those who have donated to the cemetery fund, those that sent flowers and the dozens and dozens of cards, each one lifts our spirits.

To the Fire Department for their loving and touching tribute, we and all that were present were so very touched.  We don’t think there was a dry eye within hearing.  Dad would have been honored.

To Preacher Mark Minney, our thanks for your visits to both the hospital and home meant so much and Dad would have been very blessed by his final service.  You knew him so well.

May God bless you all for your love and kindness shown to our family.

Oklahoma Bound! Gilmer County FFA Land Judging Team Qualifies to Compete at Nationals

After two years of hard work and dedication, the Gilmer County FFA land judging team will get their chance to compete at the National Land Judging Contest in Oklahoma next May of 2015.

Land Judging has two separate components.

The first part is land judging, where students evaluate land for its agricultural use.

The second part is homesite judging, where students evaluate land based on how good it is for a home.

Both contests are done at the same time using the same field sites and soil judging pits.

The Gilmer Free Press
(L-R) Advisor/Teacher Nick Cox, Hunter Smith, Adrea Peggs,
Hunter Moore, and Lucas Steele


The Gilmer team started its year off in mid May at a practice contest in Roane County where the placed third in each of the two contest.

In a little over three weeks, they worked to improve for the regional contest which was held on a local farm in Gilmer County.

At the regional contest the team placed second in land judging and won the home-site contest which put them first overall to qualify for the state contest.

A month later, they headed to Ripley, WV to begin practicing with land and soil like they would see in the state contest.

On July 11, Gilmer County High school FFA had placed fifth in land judging and third in home-site judging out of thirteen of the best teams in the state.

One of the GCHS team’s members, Lucas Steele, was the second place individual in the home-site evaluation contest.

The GCHS team placed fifth overall which qualified the team for national competition, as the top five teams in each state are allowed to do.

West Virginia is one of the most competitive land judging states in the country and has a history of doing well at nationals.

In the past Gilmer County has had state and national winning teams.

Some of the skills that students had to master were erosion (judging how much top soil is present and how much has eroded), slope (judging how steep or flat the land is between two wooden stakes), and permeability (judging how quick water moves through the soil based on the soils components).

The team would like to thank everyone in the county who helped them achieve this great honor.

On the team was Hunter Smith (son of Roger and Tammy Smith of Cedarville) Hunter Moore (Son of Arch and Tammy Moore of Glenville) Lucas Steele (son of Jeff and Royce Steele of Stouts Mills) and Adrea Peggs (Daughter of Mike and Mellissa Peggs of Sand Fork).
