Oops! Sorry about that I knew it was Ed instead of Joe but somehow posted the wrong name. They were brothers. All of them were good people.

Joe Lowe was not the one killed on election Day. that was Ed Lowe. Both were sons of Crockett and Virginia Lowe who lived at Jolo and ran the Lowe store across the stone bridge there where the old Jolo Post office used to be. Frank ran the Post office. Lenard Kelly stabbed Ed Lowe to death at the Jolo Elementary School. Ed was a Republican and Leanord was a Democrat and they had been friends so you see what arguing can do. You can find Joe Lowe's death certificate on WV cul; ture.org . vitals. It can tell you what his cause of death was if it is important to you.
If ed was the one that died...why didnt they name it after him??...what was it called before it got the name..."Jolo"

LOL.
O know that Bradshaw was called Dan WV at one time and some people say it was called Coal Junction, but all of the death records that i have collected in my genealongy research have called it DAn. WV and then later Bradshaw after the Bradshaw Coal Co. put in a mines. It was called Dan when the first postmaster , John Payne had to have a name for his PO so he called it Dan after his little son Dan Payne.

My momma said that one time when the surveyors were coming through Jolo, not named that then, they started talking to this kid who lived there. They needed a name for the place and asked the kid what his name was. He said Joseph Lowe. And so the big city of Jolo was born.

Chasing butterflies, I didn't know that about Bradshaw. Thank you.

I remember Ed Lowe and when he died. I was a very small child then. He was stabbed behind the Jolo School on election day. All those there were drinking heavily. That was back when even your hound dogs got registered to vote.

And amazing as it sounds, some people voted 20 years after they died. Those were the days.

Off the subject a little. I heard Jolo had an "NFL" Nerf Football League back in the 80's. Now those were the good ole days.
