Facts about Jolo
Jolo is also known as: Jolo.
Jolo (pronounced "Joe-Lowe") is an unincorporated community on West Virginia Route 83 in McDowell County in the U.S. state of West Virginia. The community was mentioned in the book Salvation on Sand Mountain by Dennis Covington for being the home of The Church Of The Lord Jesus With Signs Following, a renowned snake handling church. Services at the church have been filmed and widely shown on television.The name, according to a grandson of the postmaster, derives from the name of the son of the first postmaster, John Crockett Lowe. Crockett was the postmaster of a substation of the Bradshaw Post Office two miles from Jolo. Because the mail went first to Bradshaw, it frequently got mixed up. To prevent this mixup the US Post Office decided the substation needed to have its own name. The USPO then asked Crockett to recommend names. As Crockett watched his son, Joe, and a friend, Bogle Day, play in the yard he wrote down their names and came up with the names Jolo and Boda. He submitted these two names and the USPO chose the name Jolo for the post office. Their Post Office is still active. I am happy to say I am that grandson, Jay (Joseph Edwin, Jr.) Lowe. For a short time in the 1940s Joseph Edwin Lowe Sr (Joe) was the postmaster and his brother, Frank, followed him and served for many years.The Jolo Post Office was located in the Lowe's General Store owned and operated in succession by Crockett Lowe, Joe Lowe, and Frank Lowe for many years.The community is mentioned in the 2008 novel Final Theory.
