The above brick house was started in 1824 and finished in 1826. The brick was made on the farm with slave labor and burnt in homemade kilns. There was a front porch with two decks and a door on the second floor which was replaced by a window when remodeled by the present owners.  About 1819, 0-1-3 John Plymale built a two room log cabin which he connected to the brick house with a breezeway. The two log rooms were removed in 1915 and replaced with the back wing.  Here in this house 19 children were born and raised, 17 of them raising families.  This house is located on Twelve pole Creek, Wayne County, West Virginia, about 1/2 mile off state road #75 from the mouth of Plymale's Branch.  In the picture is 0-1-13-10-5 John Gilbert (Bert) Plymale of Montana and Warner Craft of Gallipolis, Ohio on the right.
