Looking for Records and Stories from Newcombe, 1920s/30s

I'm writing a book about Elliott County and am trying to find out what kinds of records and/or family stories those of you with family from the Newcombe area in Elliott County might have, or know where I could access them.

I am particularly looking for things from the 1920s and 1930s era -- if anyone has a family member who lived in Newcombe during that time, and would be willing to ask them a few questions about some things they may hopefully remember, I'd really appreciate all input (I am descended from the Cecil Fraley family who lived there for many decades). (Rice, Lewis, Gilliam, Sparks, Wagoner/Waggoner, Dickerson families, for example)

Records I would be particularly interested in, if anyone knows if they exist somewhere, would be:

*School records from Holly Grove or Fairview Schools

*Church records from James Elihu Fraley (Methodist) Chapel, Rocky Branch Enterprise Baptist, the Primitive Baptist church in Isonville, the United Baptist church, or information on any of the circuit riders of that time period in the Sandy Hook Methodist circuit.

*Store records (if they kept ledgers of credit extended to people, for example) for Henry Wheeler or Belle King's stores

Again, dates would be during 20s and 30s, for all requests.

Thanks so much for any information you might be able to provide, or any Newcombe residents from that time period you could connect me with.
