| township that the people are thrifty,
Greenville township is one of the
townships of the county that, while
‘‘aeross the mountain’® has much to
do with the general prosperity of
Meyersdale. The central point of
Greenville is Pocahontas. Although,
there is no postoffice in the village,
at the present time due to the rural
delivery system which is in operation,
the village has a phone central, store,
a Catholic church, school house, etc.
Dr. F. E. Sass, the clever family phy-
sician, known favorably far and near
takes care of the physical well being
of a a large scope of country.
The schools studded here and there
in the township take care of the in-
tellectual needs of Young America,
while the churches, the Catholic in
Pocahontas, the Lutheran and Re-
formed out from Pocahontas, and the
Hostetler, the Church of the Breth-
ren, and perhaps others not known
to the writer, supply the spiritual
needs of the people. So far as the
writer knows there is but one minis-
ter located in the township, Rev. E.
K. Hostetler, of the Church of the
Brethren. Mr. Hostetler is a man
of liberal views, broad sympa-
thies, a student of history and in close
touch with the trend of the times,
interested deeply in religious and
social developments. He is broad
spirited and living the life of his
neighbors, a man of pleasing person-
ality, and held in the highest esteem
by all who know him.
There are many excellent farms in
Greenville township and the large
barns and the convenient dwellings
attest to the general prosperity of
the people. As a side help to their
general thrift in farming, the timber
industry requires much teaming to
transport the lumber to the mines
and railroads.
The saw mills of the township give
employment to many hands. One
gets the idea in traveling through the
comfortable and contented.
Farming, lumbering and mining
engage the attention of the men of
Greenville township.
There are many well known and
highly respected people in the town-
ship. One of the best known and
oldest and most highly regarded
families, is that of Noah Lint and
wife. Their days of hustling are past,
but their home life is most refreshing
and inspiring. Mr. Lint is one of the
substantial men of the township. The
three Hostetler brothers living close
together, J. C. Miller, who always
has the latch string out, Irvin Shock-
