A mule-powered wagon train passed through Marlinton enroute to Cass last Wednesday. Paul Fuchs, of New Martinsville, his son Paul, Jr., and grandsons Noah and Levi were transiting the 76-mile length of the Greenbrier River Trail on a four-day northward journey. The group has wagon-trailed extensively, including 1,400-miles over the Mormon Trail and California Trail. An Amish company manufactured the family’s farm wagon and the hoops and wagon cover were custom-built. An automobile trailer is used to haul food and other supplies. Pictured in the wagon, left to right: Paul Fuchs, Levi Fuchs, 8, and Noah Fuchs, 14. Pulling the wagon are mules Doc and Bugs.
