I was in Grafton two weeks ago and yes they are still on 1x. But interestingly nearby Morgantown they just deployed LTE right over 1xRTT.
Are you sure that was a Verizon signal you were getting? Verizon doesn't sell service in Morgantown. They have it in the Clarksburg area then you are on US Cellular until you hit the PA state line.
So they must have just gotten and agreement with US Cellular to provide the data.
