Notes:
The fact that a listing of businesses in West Virginia is included in a Maryland directory is an indication of the close ties between the two states. The railroad brought the coal and lumber that was then transported down the C&O canal. The advertisement for the railroad, in the front of the book, reads:

The road opens up three immense coal fields... It passes through and opens to market, thousands of acres of the best timber land in West Virginia, of almost every merchantable kind, including walnut, cherry, ash, oak, hemlock, spruce, etc.
