This volume of genealogy is a result of thirty-five years of research on the author’s ancestry. However, so much additional data and so many collateral lines were obtained in the course of that research, that the scope of the work has been expanded into four volumes:

  • American Beginnings (Barnwell, Dunlap, Johnson, King, Lewis, Shaw, Shearman, Taylor, and Trimble families)
  • Southwest Virginia Families (Buchanan, Crockett, Gillespie,Graham, ames, Kincannon, Lamie, McDonald, Montgomery,Robinson, and Thomson families)
  • American Origins (Bare, Collier, David, Davidson, Easley, Frailey,Gash, Gist, Hickman, Hinds, Jarratt, McPherson, Marriott,Nevill, Pennington, Robertson, Stroud, Stubblefield,Trail, West, and Wolfe families)
  • Hiestand Family of Page County, Virginia (Hiestand and Boehm families)

The material on the author’s ancestry was generally obtained by original research, which is detailed in the bibliography; the collateral lines were usually obtained from interested descendants,
who are identified in the bibliography.

This genealogical volume is intended to be a reference work, and it is hoped that others will be able to find useful information in it. The author also hopes that additional information will be obtained following the publication of this material, so that it, too, can be published in the future.
