From the book by Bradford Spiker The Good-Will Community. A History of Holbrook, W.Va. 1814-1945"

 

 

"Good Will Community is located within 81.1 east latitude and 39.2 north longitude, and is part of South West District, Doddridge County; and Union District, Ritchie County.

"Union District was named in  honor of the 'Union Cause,' which at the time so dear to many hearts. The name was suggested by Q. Manly Zinn.

"South West District was no named because of its geographical position in the Country."
