Three of my uncles did time at Moundsville. Andy, Durwood and Dillard Wright. Durwood did the most time. Andy was the youngest and had the distinction of being shot during an escape attempt. He survived a round into the back and out the chest.
This would have been late 60s or very early 70s. They were all really great guys. One thing was that they appreciated children, having been locked up and away from them, including in Dillard's case his own, and would treat us kids like humans instead of some nuisance.
I was wondering if anyone here remembered them.
