Word was received in Grafton of the death of Mrs. Bridget Malarkey who passed away at the home of her son at Weston March 29, 1909. A history of the settlers of Grafton would be incomplete without mention of this pioneer woman who with her first husband, John Doughtery, Sr., came to this section of Virginia at the time the Baltimore and Ohio railroad were building through the town in 1852. With their small son and a very few belongings they came over land by wagon, the husband seeking employment on the railroad. On their arrival they found no place of sanctuary except a long barn on the land that is now 113 East Long street.
