In 1904 Dr. Rodney L. Swope was the Rector of All Souls Episcopal church in Asheville, NC. Dr. Swope and six other gentlemen were discussing starting a literary club. Dr. Swope is said to have said he was familiar with the Twilight Club in Wheeling, WV. The Pen and Plate Club was begun in 1904 and has met almost every month since then when an essay (well over 1,000) is presented by a member and responded to by another. I was interested in whether the Twilight Club every existed and, if so, what might have happened to it. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you. Phil Carson

During the 1940's five Zapatka children went to a one room school house. Can you give us the name of that school and would you have a photo.

My great great grandparents - James and Mary Parker arrived in Wheeling about 1845 from New York via Greenville, IL. I'm grateful for all the help I got from Historical Society some years ago. Still have never found WHERE in New York they came from.

Just checking to see whether anyone has also been seeking information lately on the Parkers? James Parker and 2 infant children are buried in Wheeling Cemetery.

Also, does Society have name of one of their children, Charles J(?) Parker , among Civil War veterans from Wheeling? Thanks again to the Society. James Landberg

Wow. Just found out about this website through classmates. I grew up in Wheeling 1961-1978. I recognize the picture of train stop as my great aunt and uncle rented the little house adjacent to it. I went to Carl Sandburg, Jack London and WHS. Graduated 1978. Married at St. Joseph's Church 1978. My husband, Terrence Guy, who also graduated from WHS in 1976, extended family, owned Peterson's Food on corner of Dundee and Milwaukee. I worked at McDonald's during HS. Left the area after marrying due to military life. My heart will always belong in Wheeling and I usually visit my Aunt every couple of years. Would really like to return but taxes in Illinois so high and I have lived in Florida since 1989 and love it. Lots of fellow Chicagoians here in Sarasota so feels a little like home. Looking forward to reading up on history of Wheeling.

Is there anyway to let me know what existed on our property in the late 1880 and early 1990s as we have found odd things buried in our backyard. We are located on Wille Avenue right across from the Walt Whitman Elementary School. Thank you

We are located in Wheeling Il. did you mean West Virginia?

The Wheeling, WV society is not longer available, but has transferred all their documents to the local library.

Sorry, Good luck.
