'Late 1940's flood picture taken from the porch of the Gorby home at 663 Maple Avenue, New Martinsville, W. Va.  Maple Avenue is 6-8 feet beneath the boat.  My sister Martha; Sam McColloch has the oars; and Aunt Mary Louise Gorby in the far end.  The rowboat belonged to the Gorby Bros. store.  It had many uses during the floods from delivering groceries, moving the store stock and furnishings, and taking us to the church to help move the church furniture.  When the work was finished, there was time to row around town and explore where everything familiar was submerged.  Then later, the cleanup would begin.  It was a big adventure for the children but not for the adults.'
