At the Tazewell County Library and probably the Historical Society
are a series of books named Annuals of Tazewell County.
Inside are wonderful, one of a kind, snapshots of our local
history preserved through the years and contributed
to the publication by family.
Two such photos are of Asa Davis, my mother’s father.
Evidently, he worked on the Maintenance of Way
for Norfolk & Western Railway and loved his job.
Everyone that I have ever heard speak of
him, has some railroad snipet in the memory.
See if you can find him, front row left and
somewhere on the trestle near Whitten’s Mill.
