One of first sightings in U.S. -- 1950s

Apparently one of the earliest sightings in the U.S. was reported by the major of this small West Virginia city in the 1950s.

The witness later built a memorial to the sighting, which has since been destroyed, and the event was recorded by a British author.

Has anyone seen this information or the book in which the event was documented?
