Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly passed March 2, 1838, approved formation of the Holliday's Cove Turnpike Company as a corporation to construct a turnpike road from the lands of Jesse Edgington on the Ohio River, in Brooke County, through Holliday's Cove to the Pennsylvania line at the termination of the turnpike road leading to Pittsburgh. Capital stock was set at $10,000, and the company was authorized to augment capital not to exceed $25,000. On March 26, 1839, approval was given to increase augmentation to $30,000, with the Board of Public Works authorized to subscribe to 2/5. Toll gates were approved every five miles, and on March 11, 1840, the General Assembly authorized the company to dispense with stone or gravel surface on the road where unnecessary.
