How d' ye!

The reference was (said to be) from a Morgantown hunter.
I never had, or saw, greater or more in depth detail or attribution reference.

Morgantown is in the eastern part of Virginia. West of D.C.
That is if I read the map right.

Dunno.

I had always assumed it was the county seat of Monongalia County, located along the Monongahela River and close to the Pennsylvania border in the north-central part of (now) West Virginia.
And home of WVA University.

We used to eat there coming or going to Prickett's Fort doin's...

Just looked again.There is one in Virginia and one in West Virginia. I think that you are right.I looked up some history on the wiki site and the one in West Virginia is probably the one you are talking about. Why can't there be just one Virginia?

"Why can't there be just one Virginia?'

Because in 1863, the eastern part of the state was Secessionist, and the western part Unionist.
And then the South lost the war.

Thanks. I have 4 pairs of moccasins, as I wear moccasins all the time. I found it easier to sew another sole onto my centre seam moccasins than make a pair of shoe-packs.
I have sewn a double sole on before of course, but not with this method before.

For those of you who sew a second sole on their moccasins when building them here is a cite on the same from the early 18th century:

"Their shoes, when they wear any,are made of an entire piece of Buck-Skin;except when they sew a piece to the bottom,to thicken the Soal. They are fasten'd on with running Strings,the Skin being drawn together like a purse on the top of the Foot, and tied around the Ankle. The Indian name for this kind of shoe is Moccasin.

"The History and Present State of Virginia In Four Parts" MDCCV [1705], by Robert Beverly, PP.162-164.
Robert Beverly lived in King and Queen County in the tidewater area of Virginia


Tom Patton



If a second sole of thicker leather is sewn to the moccasins, do you all sew it to the inside of the moccasin, or to the outside of the bottom?

I'd choose the outside if I were doing it.
