    Notes 
    • Information from Mariana L Zuelsdorf:
      The children of New Martinsville used to collect bones, and when the bone boats would come down the Ohio from Wheeling, the children would take the bones down to the river where they would be weighted. In return for the bones, the children would receive chits, which could be used to buy items on board the boat. As a child, Anna Harman did this, and with her chits, bought two lead crystal cut glass bowls for her mother. These bowls were eventually given to Mary Martha Allen Harnbrok by Anna Harman Allen. We always referred to them as the "bone bowls." (Mariana Zuelsdorf has one of them now)
