     Make The Best of Things
by Dorothy Lytton (Tabb)

The bird that sings in the tree
Sending forth a soft melody
Telling of what each day bings
It making the best of things.

The butterfly that flies high
Then lights on a flower close by
Although it could never sing
It makes the best of everything.

The pebbles on our highway
That never have a word to say
They hear all the birds that sing
They make the best of everything.

So when we have cares of woe
For always God knows best, and so
Just try a happy song to sing
And make the best of everything. Dorothy's occupation: She was a local artist who was known for her pastel and charcoal portrates and pen and ink drawings.. Dorothy was born at Ripley, Jackson County, West Virginia, on 24 September 1919. She married George Elliott Tabb at Ripley, Jackson County, West Virginia, on 27 October 1945. Dorothy Lenora Lytton died on 30 September 2006 at Jefferson Memorial Hospital, Ranson, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at age 87; She died from pneumonia that resulted as a complication from a broken hip.

George Elliott Tabb
     George Elliott Tabb was employed at Ranson, Jefferson County, West Virginia. My father (James Elliott Tabb) had two cousins, Jim and Tabb Janney, who lived in Vanclevesville in Berkeley County, West Virginia. Vanclevesville is located adjacent to the main line of the B & O Railroad between Martinsburg and Kearneysville. The cousins visited frequently. On one particular visit to the home of his cousins, my father and Tabb Janney hit upon the idea of trying to catch a slow moving freight as it moved up the grade from the Opequon Creek. The boys were successful in climbing on the moving train cars and were so delighted with themselves that they decided to ride for a short distance. In the mean time, however, the train picked up speed and when it came time for the boys to get off, it was no longer an easy task. The decision was made to jump and both did, going head over heals after hitting the ground. The conductor saw the boys jump and as the train moved by them he scolded the boys saying "I don't want to ever see you boys doing that ag ain." Needless to say, they learned their lesson and never did do it again.

My father (James Elliott Tabb) also had a white nanny goat that was constantly getting into my mother's flowers and shrubs. My mother finally laid down the law and said that the goat had to go. My father and I (George E. Tabb) loaded the goat into their model "T" Ford and took the goat to look for a new home. We knew that a one Mr. Glover on the Sulfur Springs Road in Berkeley County had several goats, so they set out to see if Mr. Glover wanted an additional goat. Upon arrival at Mr. Glover's residence they found that no one was at home. Knowing that we could not take the goat back home, we led her to Mr. Glover's barn and simply left her there. Can you imagine the surprise when the Glovers returned home to find they had a new goat and no clues as to where she came from? Nothing was ever said to the Glovers and nothing was ever heard about the white nanny goat again.

Goats are quite amusing animals. My father (George E. Tabb) told me a story about the same white nanny goat mentioned above. It was the habit of the Tabb family at "Vinemont" when chopping wood for the cook stove, to throw it up against the side of the smoke house. In time, an immense pile of split fire wood grew that reached the lower edge of the smoke house roof. The roof of the smoke house was covered with wood shingles. Goats are known for their climbing abilities. Well "Nanny" was no exception to the rule. On several occasions she was seen on top of the smoke house roof standing on her two rear legs eating the tree leaves which grew over the smoke house.

As told by George E. Tabb to George E. Tabb, Jr. on 5 Jan 1987. George was born at Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, on 8 November 1914. He married Dorothy Lenora Lytton at Ripley, Jackson County, West Virginia, on 27 October 1945. George died on 7 June 1996 at Martinsburg, Berkeley County, West Virginia, at age 81. His body was interred on 10 June 1996 at Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at Edge Hill Cemetery.

James Elliott Tabb
     James Elliott Tabb was employed at Vinemont Farm, Jefferson County, West Virginia. My father, George Elliott Tabb, related the following story concerning my Grandfather, James Elliott Tabb.

My Grandfather was responsible for delivering a horse to his brother Lyle Campbell Tabb at Newport News, Virginia. He rode the horse from his home at Leetown, West Virginia, to Dranesville, Virginia, the first day. He spent the night there and the next day rode into Washington, D.C. where he loaded the horse on a boat bound for Newport News. He traveled with the horse on the over night boat trip and the next day delivered the horse to his brother.

We speculate that he returned by boat to Washington, and then caught the train from there back to Jefferson County, West Virginia.



Just prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, in 1941, the U.S. Army proposed the construction of a large ammunition storage facility in Jefferson County, West Virginia. The facility would have covered the area from Middleway to Kearneysville to Shenandoah Junction and back to Middleway. It would have destroyed some of the most productive farm land in Jefferson County.

My Grandfather, James Elliott Tabb, served on the County Commission at that time. He and a delegation including Joe Warrenfeltz and other prominent men from Jefferson County decided to visit Senator Harry F. Byrd (of Virginia) in Washington, D.C., who was serving as Chairman of the Appropriations Committee at that time. Senator Byrd owned large orchards in Jefferson County which were not affected by the Army's proposal.

Senator Byrd graciously received the delegation and escorted them to the inner sanctum of the War Department to meet with Army officials on the mattter. Senator Byrd strongly supported the position of the delegation and shook his finger at one of the Generals present saying "You will not build that facility in Jefferson County because I will not appropriate funds for the construction."

Needless to say, the delegation was quite successful. The facility was built at Letterkenny Army Depot in nearby Pennsylvania. If the proposal had been made after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, no one would have questioned the need for the construction of this facility in Jefferson County.

The above stories were related by George Elliott Tabb to George Elliott Tabb, Jr. on 28 March 1990. James was born at 'Vinemont', Jefferson County, West Virginia, on 12 October 1873. He married Anna Lea Carter at Charles Town Presbyterian Church, Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, on 27 November 1912. James died on 31 December 1959 at Ranson, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at age 86. His body was interred on 2 January 1960 at Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at Edge Hill Cemetery.

Virginia Burns Duff
     Virginia's occupation: Housewife. at Vinemont Farm, Jefferson County, West Virginia. Virginia was born at Coraopolis, Allegheny County, Pennaylvania, on 17 October 1925. She married Lyle Campbell Tabb II at Avon Bend Farm, Jefferson County, West Virginia, on 18 January 1946. On 9 October 2015, the following story was related to me by Virginia Duff Tabb.

The gunshot hole in the hallway at Vinemont occurred when James E. Tabb thought he heard something during the middle of the night in the hallway. He got his gun and started down the stairs when the gun went off, the shot passing through a cherry drop leaf table and lodged in the wall of the hallway. We believe that Jim Tabb’s family ended up with the table. This incident happened shortly after Lyle and Virginia were married. Grandmother Tabb thought that Jim had shot himself and was quite upset about it. Virginia Burns Duff died on 1 May 2017 at Hospice of the Panhandle, Kearneysville, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at age 91. She was buried on 5 May 2017 at Edge Hill Cemetery, Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia; She was cremated.

Elliott Creighton Tabb
     Elliott Creighton Tabb was employed at Vinemont Farm, Jefferson County, West Virginia. Elliott Creighton Tabb, eldest son of Bailey and Sarah Campbell Tabb, was born December 23, 1825, in Berkeley County, Virginia. He attended the usual private schools in the country and later the Martinsburg school. He was a farmer, stockman, a Free Mason, and attended the Presbyterian Church. In politics he was a Whig, as was his father before him, until the Whig party went out of existence, when they became Democrats. On January 19, 1856, he married Emily Miller Campbell, youngest daughter of James Lyle Campbell and his wife Rebecca Burns Campbell, of Berkeley County, Virginia. A few years later he moved to Allegheny County (now Garrett County, Maryland) where he owned and operated a stock farm. Later he engaged in merchandizing and lumber business. In the fall of 1872, he returned to the Shenandoah Valley, Jefferson County, West Virginia, and settled on a farm five miles from Charles Town where he spent the remainder of his life. He died January 31, 1904. The death of his widow occurred on October 6, 1908, and both are buried in the Edge Hill Cemetery in Charles Town, West Virginia.

Excerpt From The Diary of Elliott Creighton Tabb

12 July 1851
I went to Charles Town to masonic procession laying the corner stone of the new Presbyterian church. There were about 100 in procession. I came home by old Mrs. Strider's. Grigg Buckle was with me. There was Miss Balch there from Frederick, MD. We took tea and then I came on home through town (Martinsburg). The Marriage of Elliott Creighton Tabb and Emily (Emma) Miller Campbell

(Excerpts From the Diary of Elliott Creighton Tabb)

January 18, 1856
I received a note from Emma about 8 o'clock at night saying if I would drive up to their house in my sleigh next day about 10 o'clock that she would go with me to be married. So I went to town that night and made some preparations and came home about 11 o'clock.

January 19, 1856
I went up to cousin Lyle's. Got there about 9 1/2 o'clock. Found Emma nearly ready. Cousin Lyle and Rebecca were (away) from home. Emma got in with me and we came down the back road to our house. John Lyle fell in with us as we passed down by his house. We stopped at our house. Jack Thomas met us there and sister and Jack and I and Lyle went with us to Uncle E's to take the cars (the train). We went to Cumberland, Md. Got there about 5 o'clock and were married at the Revere House kept by Mr. Heffle finger at about 7 1/2 o'clock [Saturday night]. The Reverend Y. H. Gymes performed the ceremony. Cousin Mollie Campbell and Ed and James Orrick were to see us married. Emma took the mumps. A very pleasant day.

January 20, 1856
Emma and I spent the day at the Revere House in our room. She having the mumps, we did not go out to church. James Orrick and Ed Campbell called to see us. Cold and snowing a little.

January 21, 1856
We left Cumberland about 10 o'clock and got to Martinsburg at 4 and got in our sleigh and came home [a very cold day].

January 22, 1856
I went into town (Martinsburg). Met with a great many congratulations. The boys shelling corn. I made with Frederick Hess trade him my burkshire hog for 14 sheep.

The Marriage of Elliott Creighton Tabb and Emily Miller Campbell

Virginia Duff Tabb states: "We have the diary where Elliott tells about getting the sleigh ready, going past the campbell house but Em's parents were home so he drove on by. Returned several days later. Got her, went to the train station and went to Cumberland, Maryland, and were married. She got the mumps while on the honeymoon. When they returned to Berkeley County, her parents were furious and wouldn't let her enter the house. The drove on to the Bailey Tabb home and were welcomed. She placed her b onnet on the shelf of the Lyle cupboard which is now at "Vinemont." The cupboard was built by Daniel Doll and finished in September 1829 at the cost of $13.50."

Dear Sade;

This is to let you know that Pa died this morning at one o'clock.

He passed away very quietly without a struggle, was uncontious nearly all day yesterday and the doctor said that he did not suffer at all. He will be buried Feb 1st. services taking place here at half past ten o'clock. Cam said when he was here that he would not come back to the funeral and I think it is just as well. I am so glad you and he came when you did, it was so much better than coming now.

We will write you fully in a few days. Ben has a right bad cold. The rest are well. I will write now to Cam and Hope.



With love,

Fan


"Vinemont" West VA.
February 2, 1904

My Dear Sade

I suppose you have Fan's letter telling you of Pa's death by this time. Dr. Hirst was here about 4 o'clock Saturday and said he could not live till midnight. Mr. Sechrist came about six for his mail and said he would go home and come back and stay all night so if he did die he would be here so he did and he and Jim washed and dressed him. Fan and Beck sat up but Ma and I went to bed about eleven. The next morning Mrs. Sechrist and Cora and Miss Pet came. Frank went to Berkeley and he phoned to Holmes and Uncle Harlan and Tabb and to Martinsburg and to Mr. Mace Hiednobel went to town and we got Mr. Rissler for the undertaker. He had Col. Gibson's funeral that day at 2 o'clock so he did not get out till after three. He brought a nice shroud black and looked very much like a coat and vest and showed the white shirt collar and neck tie and he looked nice and very natural. I had heard him say that he wanted to be buried in a nice walnut coffin not cloth or metallic . So they brought a very nice coffin. The plate had "Father" on it. Mr. Rissler put him in the casket and put it in the little hall as we were obliged to use the lower room and they could not take the coffin into his room very well. Tabb came about eleven o'clock Sunday morning, and during the day Mr. & Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Jim Watson and _______ Campbell and Mr. Floyd Watson. There about five Uncle Harlan drove up and a few minutes Uncle Jimmie and May came. The bearers were Mr. Mace Hiednobel, Mr. Sechrist, Mr. Mose Trussell, Mr. Ramey, Mr . Jim Watson, and Mr. Ephrim Watson. Mr. White did not preach a sermon. He read the 90th Psalm and part of the 22nd Chapter of Revelations. They sang "Nearer My God To Thee" and "Rock of Ages" and made a beautiful prayer. The singing was very sweet. Fannie Campbell and Bessie Taylor and Maria came and Fannie Campbell and Jim Strider I think and the Hiednobel girls and I don't know who else sang but it was very sweet. The Littletons brought us their veils and bonnets and Miss Kate's cloak for me. Kat e and Fannie were both sick and could not come. Beck and Jim and Tabb and I went in the Littleton's car - Madge and Fan and Holmes and Mary Campbell and Frank in our carriage. Ben has had a slight attack of the grip and we were afraid for him to go to the cemetery. Dr. Hopkins was at the grave and made the prayer and Mr. White pronounced the benediction and we came away as soon as the casket was lowered and the prayer said.

We got a beautiful bunch of carnations pale pink and white and smilax and were tied with milk white ribbon. There were a good many persons here. Mrs. Henderson came. Mazie and Ed Henshaw came down. Cousin Seaton came but none of the girls which is just like them, but we thought one of them might have come, but there may be reasons that we do not know. George Porterfield came out and was so nice about helping us in and out of the carriages at the cemetery. Lots of the Moores came and Tom and Rebeckah and a good many Smithfield people, Mr. Lem Dandridge and lots of the neighbors. Lillian did not come as Emily had a cold and she was afraid to take her out. Uncle Harlan and Uncle Jimmie did not go to town and Uncle Harlan started home soon after we went away as the wind was getting up and they were afraid the roads would drift. Uncle Jimmie and Mary and Holmes and Mr. White went home after dinner and it was very rough and windy but it got calmer towards night. Mr . White has had three funerals since last Thursday. Creighton did not go to school today as he has a little cough. Fan says I could write a chapter on Creighton. I heard him tell Fan this morning that he liked Uncle Harlan better than Uncle Jimmie because he gave him for or five cents and Fan tried to argue with him and said he must not love people because he could get money and that she can get Uncle Jimmie to hug him so he ought to love him for that and Creighton sa id " no sir money does you a heap more good than hugs" and then said "I love my Aunt Sade better than any of my aunts because she gave me 15 cents." I think they nearly came to blows about that time and Fan crawled out of bed. He has improved like everything and says please right well and yes mam and knows "yourn" is wrong. He is as smart as a tack and is reading quite well. He has gone everyday for three weeks but we won't let him go while he has a cold. He said about five minutes of ten today that he felt badly. His head hurt and he was going to bed so he went and I watched the clock to see how long he would stay in bed and after I came in from the kitchen ten after ten there he was in the dining room telling Ma that he got up but he was not able to walk down the steps so he just sat down and slid down. Good for the headache wasn't it? He wants to go to house keeping under the piano with little Ruth Watson. Says Ruth can sleep next to the wall and he will sleep at the outside. Ma had a letter from Hope today. She had seen Pa's death in the Sun Monday morning.

I must stop. Beck is nearly through with your ______ has the collar yet to work and that won't take long.

Jim says he has eight little black calves now. Three came this last week. Ma and the girls send love. With love to Mrs. Pollock.

Lovingly,

Vird. Sarah died on 9 April 1948 at Jefferson County, West Virginia, at age 83. Her body was interred on 11 April 1948 at Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at Edge Hill Cemetery.

Benjamin Parker Tabb
     Benjamin Parker Tabb was employed at Vinemont Farm, Jefferson County, West Virginia. Benjamin Parker Tabb (Uncle Ben) was constantly teasing his nephews (George, Jim, and Lyle) about a small airplane he supposedly had hidden out in the woods. He would constantly tell the young boys to finish their meals quickly so they could take a spin in the airplane. Uncle Ben percisted once too often and Jim told him "Quit your lying Uncle Ben or I will pour molassas on your head." Uncle Ben kept up the teasing. Jim quietly sneaked away from the table, got the molassas and proceeded to dribble it on Uncle Ben's head.

Grandmother Tabb (Anna Lea Carter Tabb) heated some water for Uncle Ben to wash his head. He commented that the molassas foamed up a great deal.

After washing his head, Uncle Ben walked to town to releive his anxiety over the incident. He returned later in the day in a much better humor and stated that it was no longer necessary to purchase any shampoo for the household since there was a good supply of molassas.

Uncle Ben never married but did go courting quite often. When courting, his nephews always had to take him since he never learned to drive. He always wore an overcoat even during the hot summer months to "hide" the box of candy he always took with him for his lady friend.

Lyle C. Tabb II related these stories to George E. Tabb, Jr. on 3 May 1992. Benjamin was born at Berkeley County, West Virginia, on 7 December 1869.1 Benjamin died on 4 December 1950 at Jefferson County, West Virginia, at age 80. His body was interred on 6 December 1950 at Charles Town, Jefferson County, West Virginia, at Edge Hill Cemetery.
