I moved up to South Hills, a suburb of Charleston, a few years ago and started hunting for fossils in the nearby creeks.  The Charleston area is generally not great fossil territory, but I struck gold in Lick Branch.  The creek is chock full of sandstone-replaced coal plants, mainly Stigmaria  and Lepidodendron.  I have pulled about 40 specimens out, the best one being the Stigmaria  shown below.
