  • Notes 
    • After their marriage, Berlin and Loula lived at the Carpenter place midway between McDowell and Doe Hill. In 1924 they moved to the Dan Hiner farm at Doe Hill (now owned by the Delbert Rexrode family) located near the WVa. border., where Berlin managed the Jared Hiner farms which were located in Highland, Pendleton, Pocahontas, and Augusta counties. At Jared's death the farms passed on to his daughters, Lura Hook (Burton) and Miss Leta.
      In 1939, dad (Dice) started building his homestead on the WVa. side in sight of Uncle Berlins. I spent many hours playing with Glen and Gene. Later, Uncle Berlin bought a farm just south of the Jake Armstrong farm-about 2 miles upriver fromwell. Berlin, a World War I veteran, served on the Highland County Board of Supervisors from 1948-1960. He also served a wide area as an unlicensed, self-taught veternarian. I remember his skill at castrating bulls and horses and spaying heifers.JHA 3/2001.
