But when your kidneys don't work, the rest of you won't work, either. That's why now is a good time to show these two fist-sized organs on either side of your spine some love. It's time to "Heart Your Kidneys" What Your Kidneys Do For You Kidneys are vital organs that keep you alive. They play the powerful roles of filtering everything in your system, keeping your body clear of waste and toxins, balancing your internal fluids, releasing hormones that regulate blood pressure, and controlling the production of red blood cells, among other things• That's a lot of responsibility, and kidneys live up to it 24/7 in order to keep your system running smoothly. Heart Your Kidneys. Be(ause when they stop working, so do youl Certain factors can cause chronic kidney disease. People with diabetes and/or high blood pressure are at a high- er risk, as are certain demographics such as African Americans, Hispanics and Asians. If you're in one of these groups, it's important to be diligent about main- raining your overall health, and to speak to your primary care physician about By Roy C. The Problem two simple tests (one blood, one urine) No further attempt was made at LOWELL, WEST VIRGINIA, ITS BEGINNING: Part 1. Culbertson's Bottom, now known as Crumps Bottom, was the first settlement in the boundaries of present day Summers County. About the year 1750, the pioneer, Andrew Culbertson, settled at Crumps Bottom on New River 120 years before Summers County was formed by an Act of the West Virginia Legislature. The second oldest settlement within the boundaries of Summers County was made by the pioneer, James Graham, about 1770, one hundred years before Summers County was incorporated. He chose a location on the Greenbrier River where the village of Lowell, on the C&O RailwaY, now stands. Here he built, on his own land, a two-story farm house of hewn logs for living quarters, strong enough to act as a house-fort for the protection against savage Indians that roamed the countryside. :' About ten years after Andrew Culbertsen settled on New River, Indians destroyed Archibald Clendenin's settlement and another settlement on Muddy Creek in Greenbrier County. All inhabitants were either killed, taken prisoner or fled to the eastern settlements. It was at the Clendenin massacre Archibald Clendenin was killed. His wife, Anne, and daughter, Jane, were taken prisoner. When crossing over Muddy Creek Mountain, Ann McSwain Clendenin escaped and made her way to the Cow Pasture River where she later married John Rodgere before moving back to Greenbrier County. When Jane was released by the Indians, she married John Davis. Their daughter, Elizabeth Davis, married William Preston Long, the ,great-great- grandfather of this writer.

Kevin Longino, CEO of National Kid- risk population. Fortunately, it's easy Although it had been twenty years since the destruction by the Indians of previous settlements, Mr. Graham was quick to recognize the danger and to defend himself and his family until suddenly, without provocation, an attack by Indians was made against him, killing his son and 'taking his young daughter, Elizabeth, age 7, prisoner. Some years later he found her among the Shawnee tribes at Chillicothe, Ohio, where she had been adopted by a squaw of one of the chief's of the Cornstalk family. After paying a heavy ransom, he bought her back after an absence of eight years. She married Joel Stogill in 1792 and settled on Han's Creek in Monroe County, Virginia (now West Virginia), to become ancestress of several prominent families of Monroe and Summers Counties. Because of the world-famous Greenbrier Hotel at White Sulphur Springs, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway chose the western route from Covington, Virginia over Allegheny Mountain though White Sulphur Springs to the Greenbrier River at Whitcomb. It followed the Grecnbrier River and reached the Lowell area, where James Graham settled, in 1872. Land promoters and enterprising men were to follow the railroad. Lowell was supposedly named alter two brothers, A. C. and Preston Lowe who settled there with the coming of the railroad, engaged in mercantile and hotel businesses• Mr. Collis P. Huntington, President of the C&O, was pushing for completion of the line and a connection with the Ohio River outlet. The entire line was single track throughout except over the Guyan River at Huntington, West Virginia, where there was double track. In most cases, ties were neither uniformly spaced'nor ballasted. Tunnels were lined and bridges built of wooden construction. After fifteen to twenty years, it was obvious heavy construction was in order or the railroad would not be able to handle the business that was expanding by leaps~and bounds because of the growing coal business. At one time, three main line tracks were considered for construction from the coal marshalling yard at Thurmond, West V'trginia, east to coal facilities at Newport News, Virginia.

Melville E. Inglas became President of the C&O in March 1888 and a year later brought Harry Frazier to the C&O from the L&N Railroad and put him in charge of the Maintenance of Way Department over the entire system. Shortly after this, Mr. Frazier put into motion necessary work replacing wooden bridges with steel, one of which was the bridge at Lowell over the Greenbrier River. Lowell, West Virginia, was a very important station for the C&O in those early days. It was an outlet for passengers from, and enroute to, the famous Red Sulphur Springs spa resort. Farm products such as milk, butter, eggs, ahd poultry, were shipped from the station at Lowell, as were cars loaded with tanbark, railroad ties, sheep and cattle. Lowell remained a big shipping point for the C&O in the area until well after a steel bridge was constructed over the river, at that place, replacing the original Wooden bridge. Prominent families residing in the Lowell area were Graham, Ballengee, Lively, Bryant, Kesler, Lowe and Keller among others. In later years, Bunnyan Lee Kesler resided in the old log farm house that was built by James Graham. Billy Gillispie Kesler remembers as a child living there with his grandfather who was affectionately known as 'Bun" Kesler. Bun Kesler married Jennie Lively. Their son, Marion Gwinn Kesler was a prominent freight conductor over the Allegheny Subdivision of the C&O Railway for over forty years. He married Willie • Eva Gillispie, a daughter of William Gillispie and Emma Woodson Gillispie. Marion and Willie Kesler were the parents of sevon children ' ~ ....... : ........... viz: 1. RUth' 2.
