COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER


I am a coal miner's daughter from the mining town of Dehue in Logan County, West Virginia. My name is Dolores Davis, and I married Donald Davis who is also from Dehue. I am an author of two books, and a researcher of our family history. We have lived east of Cleveland, Ohio since 1966. We are blessed with four children, Alisha, Donnie, Kristy, and Heather, and with granddaughter, Jenny (20) and grandson, Josh Gifford (17). Now, we have a new crop of grandsons via Heather which is Sam (2) and Ben Watson (1).

My parent's were Rev. Emmett B. Riggs, Sr. & Gladys Marie Brickey-Riggs. I have one brother, Emmett B. Riggs, Jr. who lives near me. Dad's favorite flower was a dogwood, and that's why I choose this background. Mom and I had a spray of dogwood put on dad's headstone, and it brings a smile to my face every time I go there to visit. Now mom lies beside dad, and the praying hands on the headstone are for her.

MEMORIES OF WEST VIRGINIA

Memories of West Virginia,
I miss the old homeplace.
Memories of West Virginia,
Where a true friend is to be found.

I'm going back to West Virginia,
Where the mountains meet the sky.
I'm going back to West Virginia,
Let me stay there till I die.
