History of Parkersburg, WV and its surounding towns.

Parkersburg was once a boomtown in the heyday of petroleum. Murphytown was also once boomtown as-well-as CISCO, WV. Lets here it for the small communities.

I am trying to do research on my grandfather. It involved Nichols Bakery payroll robbery in 1951. Shot and killed by police when he pulled a gun, no gun was found. Police Officer Frank Snyder was the officer who fired the fatal shot. An informant and member of the gang was not present in the bakery at the time of shooting. I know the informants name, the gang was known as the Delaney Gang. My grandfather was Delaney. If anyone has information on this incident or the Delaney gang. Just found out it was my uncle Dearman Delaney. davidshockey1952@yahoo**** Any assistance would be appreciated It is possible that more than one of the perpetrators could have been killed.
