"Mr. Price is a son of the Rev. William T. Price, D.D., and Annie L. Price, his wife. He was born in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, January 29, 1871, and was educated in the public and private schools of the Greenbrier Valley, notably the Academy at Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, which offered a liberal education in the higher branches of studies, including the Latin language and the sciences; later he attended the West Virginia University at Morgantown, from which he graduated in 1892 with the degree of Bachelor of Laws. He was in the same year admitted to membership of the Pocahontas Bar, and has since practiced his profession uninterrputedly at Marlington, the seat of justice of his native county. He married Miss Grace Leigh Clark, February 10, 1897, and has two daughters--Agnes and Margaret--who are graduates of the Lewisburgh Seminary, and [went on to attend] West Virginia University." [Geo.
