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.
About This Book
My grandparents helped David Trimble research and write some of his books. In exchange, David gave my grandfather permission to sell digital copies of his work. I also had the pleasure of helping David with a couple of his last few books, which led to me receiving David Trimble’s remaining inventory and my grandfather’s rights when they passed away.
This copy of American Origins was created by scanning a used copy of David Trimble’s original book. There were a few pen marks but I believe it is still good enough quality to fit your genealogy-research needs.
