Mr. A Hock is recorded in my roster book as having been hired 3 September, 1896. I'm sure that my Dad, ( Fireman T.C. Arnold Sr. Hired 7/29/26, deceased 12/17/50)
worked with him from time to time. I spent many happy hours standing on the Bluefield street corners, call office, and round house listening to Railroad Jargon. These guys were my heroes, which included a hobo introduced to me as "Uncle Sam" who was allowed, when in town, to stay in Mr. Dailey's garage on Giles Street..
Thanks again;
Gene A.

If you don't mind telling me, what was your Great Grandfathers name?

I have my Father's 1942 seniority roster and time book for the Pocohontas division and Bluefield yard that includes employ hire and promotion that dates back to 1893. Also in his hand writing are listed the crew members when he was out on the road.

Thank you;
