Family homestead and cemetery is on Big Sycamore Creek about 5 miles
from its
confluence with the Elk River, near Indore, Pleasant Twp., Clay Co., WV.
County
road # 12 traverses Big Sycamore Creek many times from Indore down to the
Elk
River, then down the Elk along the old B&O railroad track, past the old
train
station to Little Sycamore Creek, then up Little Sycamore Creek past
Warfield to
County Road # 1 near Indore. Eldorado is at the mouth of Big Sycamore
Creek.

County Road # 12-1 runs from Warfield to near the Homestead on County
Road # 12, completing the circle of roads # 12 and # 12-1. Supplies were
shipped from Charleston up the Elk River on the B&O railroad to the train
station and then by wagon up road # 12 to the homestead. Some supplies
were
purchased at Warfield, the nearest settlement, and at Indore, a larger
settlement but somewhat further away. The road to Indore was better than
the
road to Warfield. Information from uncle Joseph Monroe Arbogast by
conversation and letters. The roads through this area are not improved.
Many
are now only logging, gas pipeline and other utitity maintenance roads.
