Historical Collections of the Mahoning Valley (Ohio). Mahoning Valley Historical Society Staff. This area in Mahoning and Trumbull counties was originally part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Significant settlement began shortly after 1800. This work consists of two major parts: the first 120 pages being records of the pioneer reunions held in 1874 and 1875, while the balance of the work consists of histories of the early settlement of the towns and townships in these two counties. The records of the reunions consist mainly of historical essays on the early settlements, so the volume is replete with biographical tidbits on early residents which is now made more accessible by the addition of a new every-name index. 1990 9781556133367 101-M3336 - $41.00

 

Alsop's Maryland: A Character of the Province of Maryland. George Alsop. In 1658 George Alsop left England for Maryland, where he worked as an "indented" servant in Baltimore Co., under the government of Lord Baltimore. It seems highly probable that the lord proprietor and governor, both eager to attract laborers, encouraged Alsop to write this glowing account of the province. Alsop paints an extremely enticing picture of the bountiful natural resources of Mary-Land, followed by a discussion of the merits of "her well ordered Government," and her virtuous settlers. The benefits of apprenticeship and the necessity of servitude are discussed. Alsop's flattering words do not extend to his horror-filled chapter on the customs, manners and religion of the Susquehanock Indians.  This slender volume is enhanced by an introduction that offers a glimpse of the author's life and times, and concludes with a collection of letters written by the author.

Cedar Grove Cemetery Portsmouth, Virginia, Plot Book 1 and 2. Betty J. Matthews. The town of Portsmouth was established in 1752 on land owned by Colonel William Craford. Colonel Craford hired a surveyor, Gershom Nimmo, to divide the sixty-five acres of his plantation into a town to be called Portsmouth, which was named after the seacoast town in England. The town initially had no public place in which to bury the dead—only various church yards or private plots in gardens. In 1832, the legislature of the State of Virginia authorized the town trustee of Portsmouth to forbid the burial of the dead within the city limits. Thus, the first public cemetery established was Cedar Grove; it was purchased in 1833. The cost to own a grave site in 1833 was $8.00 for residents and $10.00 for nonresidents. The first keeper of the cemetery was the town sergeant who was paid $50.00 a year for his services. Cedar Grove Cemetery is located west of Effingham Street, which was outside the city limits in 1832. Plot book records contained in this book include information on the owner and specific location of the burial plot, date of burial, death date, age at death, and relatives of the deceased in some cases.

The Rev. John Williams, Captive of the Indians from 1703-1706: A New Volume Combining WillliamsAutobiographica Account, The Redeemed Captive Returning to Zion, with George Sheldon’s Heredity and Early Environment of John Williams, “The Redeemed Captive”. John Williams and George Sheldon. John Williams was a Puritan minister in Deerfield, Massachusetts, at a time of intense hostility between English settlers and the local Indian tribes. Throughout the 1690s the young clergyman was continually called upon to encourage and comfort his parishioners as members of the community were killed or captured by Indians. On February 29, 1703, Williams himself became a victim when a French and Indian raiding party sacked Deerfield. Two of his children were murdered outside his house, but he, his wife and their five other children were kidnapped and marched - with over a hundred captured prisoners - to Montreal. His wife, as well as many others who were too weak or infirm for the arduous journey, was killed along the way. He spent two and a half years as a captive in Quebec. Williams wrote his autobiographical account of the ordeal in 176, the year he was released, and it remained for many years one of the most populart among numerous Indian captivity accounts. After his description of the march to Montreal, Williams’ narative focuses on the coercive attempts of the French to proselytize the English prisoners into the Roman Catholic faith. To make this early New England classic available to readers, Heritage Books, Inc. has taken a 1908 reprit of the 1795 sixth edition of  The Redeemed Captive, which contains a sermon preached by Williams at Boston only two weeks after his return. Several appendices are also included, containing such information as, the names of all the Deerfield captives and brif chronologies of Deerfield before and after the devastating raid. A new everyname index has been added. Greatly enhancing this offer of the Williams’ book is its combination with the related 1905 work by George Sheldon, Heredity and Early Environment of John Williams, “The Redeemed Captive.” This valuable record provides biographical details of John Williams’ youth, education and early adulthood as well as background information into the Puritan faith that was so much a part of Williams’ and his neighbors’ lives. An everyname index is included. (1795, 1905, 1997), 2011, 5½x8½, paper, index, 412 pp  9780788406973 101-W0697 - $39.00

Tennessee Tidbits, 1778-1914, Volume I. Marjorie Hood Fischer. This work is an absolute gold mine for anyone who is researching the state of Tennessee.

In many cases, this is the only record that exists to show birth dates, death, divorce, naturalization, and much more. Most of the court minutes have no index, or at best only a partial index, so it took a page-by-page reading to find this information.  Included in Volume One are records from Blount, Davidson, Dickson, Fayette, Giles, Greene, Hardin, Haywood, Hickman, Humphreys, Lincoln, Putnam, Rutherford, Washington and Williamson Counties. If you don't have ancestors in these counties, this book can still help you. There are references to people in many other counties and in many states. They show relationships and migration paths. This series encompasses the dates 1778-1914, but individual volumes may not contain records for the entire time span. (1986), 2008, 6x9, paper, index, 544 pp   101-F4623 - $41.00

Early Villages of Stamford, Connecticut: The Cove and Long Ridge. Jeanne Majdalany. The history is a combination of two works which were previously published in the late 1970’s. They are now being offered as a single volume, covering the time period of 1641 to 1978: nearly three and a half centuries. The book’s first part deals with the Cove, an area along the Connecticut shore of Long Island Sound, located mainly on the island in the cove between Stamford and Darien. The region’s history goes back to 1641. The island was first used as a pound; then it became the center of a grist mill operation. By 1800 John William Holly had settled there and further developed mills producing dyes and drugs. Eventually the whole area was absorbed by the Stamford Manufacturing Company, where 500 men were employed. This section is also replete with photographs, maps and illustrations from both the 19th century and more recent times. In addition to presenting the history. It contains a full chart on the Holly family plus many references to other families in the area, which will all be extremely appreciated by researchers.
