Biographical or historical data
An act of the General Assembly, passed March 7, 1850, approved incorporation of the West Milford and New Salem Turnpike Company to construct a turnpike road from some point on the Northwestern Turnpike at or near Salem, in Harrison County, by way of West Milford and Jane Lew in Lewis County, to some point on the Staunton and Parkersburg road at or near George Lorentz's. Initially, joint capital stock was set at $12,000, with the Board of Public Works authorized to subscribe to $7,200; an increase of $6,000 was granted March 17, 1851, to finance a branch to Clarksburg. On February 24, 1860, the General Assembly authorized formation of a separate company by stockholders in Lewis and Upshur counties, called the Jane Lew and Upshur Turnpike Company.
