  Sennett Triplett was one of the earliest settlers of the Elk River Valley. He lived in Braxton (now Clay) county. Triplett was a man of fine intellect, well educated and was far above the average citizen in intelligence. He was very plain in his manners and dress. He was fond of hunting and kept a pack of well-trained dogs. Triplett was a surveyor, and was summoned to attend court in Nicholas county in a land suit of considerable importance. When he presented himself in open court he was accompanied by his gun and dogs, and was dressed in buckskin. He wore moccasins and coonskin cap with the tail hanging down his back. He had on the rudest kind of hunting shirt, girded - around his loins with a piece of leatherwood bark, and it is said that when he walked into the courthouse, followed by his dogs and set his gun down in one corner of the room and hung the shotpouch on the muzzle of the gun, the dogs all lay down by the gun. The people were amused and somewhat surprised to see such an outfit. The lawyers thought that the man was demented and consequently not qualified to give testimony, and the side against whom Trip- lett was to give evidence objected. The court said they could question the witness as to his sanity, and the lawyer thereupon asked him who made him. Triplett replied, "I reckon Moses did." Triplett then said to the lawyer, "Who made you?" The lawyer said, "I suppose Aaron did." Triplett, being well versed in Scripture, said, "I have read in the Bible where Aaron made a calf, but I didn't know that the darned thing was bleating around yet." Triplett gave testimony. https://archive.org/stream/historyofbraxton00sutt/historyofbraxton00sutt_djvu.txt
