Title

Reminiscences

Description

This document has focused on the memories of many residents from videotaped interviews (converted to disks) north and south of U.S. Route 460 in eastern Roanoke County and southern Botetourt County to the Bedford County line, and west on Alternate 220 toward Read Mountain. There are certainly other families of significance that do not occur on the list that follows this page. To those families, apologies are in order. Those residents who agreed when approached are the ones that appear.
Families with the surnames of Callahan (Callaghan), Davis, Dent, Donald, Gordon, Hall, Leonard, Martin, Smith, Swartzel, Tyler, Whitt, and Witt have been important contributing members of the southern Botetourt communities of Coyner Springs, Webster, Blue Ridge, and Laymantown.
