Month Day Year:  November 2, 2010

Welcome back!  We have some interesting books for you this newsletter, but they are mixed in nature, so you will need to check each one to make sure you don't miss a good one!


Doesn't it almost always work this way?  I was sure I had all the South Carolina books together.  Then I literally stumbled over one more, so I am going to start this crate with that one before it gets away from me again!  Here it is! Crazy Crate73:


SC - CRAZY CRATE YOGS73:  BOOK 1:  HISTORY OF OLD PENDLETON DISTRICT, [SOUTH CAROLINA] WITH A GENEALOGY OF THE LEADING FAMILIES OF THE DISTRICT.  By R. W. Simpson.  A Heritage Classic.  Published originally in 1913.  This facsimile reprint by Heritage Books, Inc., MD, was printed in 1988. 243 pages, 5½" by 8½", laminated wrapper cover, and indexed.  The Pendleton District in northwestern South Carolina has a complex history.  It was originally part of the Cherokee Indian lands which were divided in 1749 to create Pendleton and GreenvilleCounties.  The name was subsequently changed to Pendleton District and it finally ceased to exist as a political unit about 1825 when it was subdivided to form the present Anderson and Pickens Counties.  This volume provides a brief (70 pages) history of the region followed by hundreds of genealogical sketches of district families.  The genealogies are generally lacking in vital statistics, but nevertheless provide a wealth of genealogical data.  The index lists every name in the historical part (pages 5-68) and the buried names in the genealogical part (pages 69 to 223) of this book.  Thus if you are researching the Adams family, look first at the Adams family article (pages 142 and 143) and then check the individual names found here in the index elsewhere in this book.  In order to abstract this index, I am listing all the surnames that have a family (f) sketch and all the surnames that have four or more individuals listed.  Adams ((f means family), Adger f, Alexander, Allen, Anderson f, Aull, Bacot, Banks, Barton, Bates, Beef, Bellotte f, Benson f, Beverl(e)y, Bishop, Blake, Blas(s)ingame f, Boggs, Bomar, Bostic, Bowen, Boyd, Breazeal, Brewer, Briggs, Brown, Broyles f, Bruce, Burt, Calhoun f, Campbell, Carlisle, Carpenter, Carter, Chamberlain, Chappel/l, Cherry, Chisholm, Clark/e, Clayton, Clemson, Cleveland, Corr(o)uth, Craig, Crawford, Crayton, Crenshaw, Cunningham, Cuthbert, Dart, Davant f, Davis, Dean, Dendy, Deyampert, Dickinson f, Dickson f, Douthitt, Doyle, Dugas, Dupree f, Earle f, Easley f, Erskine, Evatt, Farmer, Ferrell, Ford, Foster, Gaillard f, Gaines, Gambrell, Garlngton, Garrison, Glenn, Graham, Grant, Green, Gresham, Grey, Griffin, Hacket/t, Hagood, Hall f, Halsey, Hamilton, Hampton, Hanckel f, Harris, Harrison f, Hayne f, Henry, Heyward, Hill, Hillhouse, Hoke, Holcomb/e, Holleman, Holmes, Houston, Hubbard f, Hudgens, Hunter f, Jenkins, Jennings, Johnson, Johnstone, Jones, Keels, Kennedy, Kilpatrick, King, Klugh, Latte f, Law, Lay, Lee, Lewis f, Ligon f, Lockhart, Lorton f, Lyles, Mackey, Majors, Marshall, Martin f, Mauldin, Maverick, Maxwell, Mays f, McBryde f, McConell, McElhanny f, McElroy, McLees, Miles, Miller f, Mills, Mitchel/l, Moore, Moss, Mullinix, Murray, Newton f, Noble, Norris, North f, Norton, O'Donnell, Orr, Osborne, Owen f, Partlou, Perry, Pickens f, Pike f, Pinckney f, Poe f, Porter, Prevost, Randell f, Reed, Reese f, Reid, Richardson, Robinson f, Ross f, Rucker, Russell, Schoen, Scott, Seaborn/e f, Seabrook, Shanklin f, Sharpe f, Shaw f, Sheppard, Simpson f, Sitton f, Sloan f, Smith f, Smythe, Steel/e f, Stephens, Stevens f, Stribling f, Symmes f, Taliaferro f, Taylor f, Terrie, Thompson, Trescot/t f, Turpin, VanWyck, Wagner, Walker, Waring, Warley f, Warren, Washington, Watkins f, Watson, Waymon, Webb, Weyman, White, Whitfield f, Whitner f, Whitten, Wilkinson, Wlliams, Wlson, Wofford and Wright.  Good condition, previous owner's name only sign book is not new.  PRICE:  $20


NJ - CRAZY CRATE YOGS73:  BOOK 2:  EARLY GERMANS OF NEW JERSEY.  Their Histories, Churches and Genealogies. With Maps and Illustrations.  By Theodore Frelinghuysen Chambers [with a new foreword by Kenn Stryker-Rodda.  Originally published in DOVER, NJ, in 1895.  Reprinted 1969 and then this 1982 edition.  ©1969.  667 pages, hardbound.  Ex lib - library with four markings, two bookplates inside front cover [gift & withdrawn] and stamp of library on top of closed pages and above the Foreword.  This book did not circulate. This book covers northwestern New Jersey in detail. It includes other early settlers of old RoxburyTownship from Southold and Southampton and many other families with which they intermarried.  The Foreword mentions this as useful for families of English, Scottish, or Dutch origin as for German ones.  The author relied on the families of his own and neighboring parishes for much of the information.  They brought out for his inspection their Bibles, parlor albums, and personal papers, told him their ancestry much as English families had.  He read their wills.  This book is a wonderful collection of CLUES, but, most often, the source is not noted, as was common in those days, and may remain yet to be proven.        

The following place names are mentioned in his Preface: the records of Newton, Belvidere, Flemington, Somerville and Morristown.  He checked everyone of the 62 books of wills located at Trenton. Church records at Stillwater, German Valley, New Germantown, Lebanon and Mount Pleasant were carefully compiled.  To gather additional data the inscriptions in 31 cemeteries from Newton to Flemington, including those of Lamington, Bedminster and Somerville, were copied.  There are 26 Chapters in this book, Part I, covering in detail the following:  German Forefathers, the Moravians, Early Church History, The Muhlenburgs, German Reformed, Fairmount Presbyterian Chuch, Reformed Church of Lebanon, Upper German Valley, Lower Valley, Unionville, Schooley's Mountain, Schooley's Mountain Presbyterian Church, Presbyterian Church of Pleasant Grove, Settlers of Tewksberry Twp., Southold, Southampton, Chester Presbyterian Church and Spruce Run, "Swake" and Clarksville Lutheran Churches.  Part II contains the genealogies, covering in alphabetical order important information from one detailed paragraph to several pages in length of information on the following surnames:  Abel, Adams, Aller, Alpock, Ammerman, Anthony, Apgar, Appelman, Aree, Ayres, Axford, Baldwin, Bale, Banghart, Barkman, Bartles, Bartley, Batson, Beam, Beattey, Beavers, Bell, Bellis or Bellowsfelt, Bernhard, Berger, Bird, Bloom, Bodine, Bowman, Brown, Buchanan, Budd, Bulmer, Bunn, Busenberry, Carhart, Carlisle, Case, Castner, Chambers, Coleman, Colver, Condict, Couse, Craig, Cramer, Crater, Cregar, Cummings, Dallicker, Davis, Deats or Teats, DeCe, DeCamp, DeRose, Dickerson, Dierdorff, Dilts, Dorland, Drake, Dufford, Eckel, Ege, Eich, Emmons, Engell, Eoff, Faircloe, Farley, Farrow, Felt, Felmley, Filds, Fisher, Fleming, Flock, Flumervelt, Folk, Force, Fox, Frae, Frelinghausen, Frey, Fritts, Frone, Gray, Griffiths, Gulick, Hager, Haines, Hance, Hann, Hartram, Heath, Heaton, Hedges, Hendershot, Henderson, Henry, Hildebrant, Hiler, Hilts, Hockenbury, Hoffman, Honness, Hoppock, Horton, Howell, Hummer, Hunt, Iliff, Kelsey, Kempel, Kern, Kester, Kice, King, Kinnan, Kline, LaGange, Lake, Lance, Larason, Lawrence, Leek, Lerch, Lindabury, Lomerson, Lucas, Luse, Martinus, Messlar, Mettler, Miller, Ming, Moore, Neighbor, Neitser, Nicholas, Nunn, Ogden, Ort, Overton, Pace, Parker, Pew, Philhower, Pickle, Pool, Potter, Race, Rarick, Raub, Rawling, Read, Reed, Reeves, Roger, Rhinehart, Rittenhouse, Roberts, Robertson, Rockafellow, Roelofson, Runyon, Rusling, Salmon, Salter, Schenkel, Schleicher, Schooley, Schuyler, Schwartzwelder, Seals, Seifers, Seward, Shafer, Sharp, or Sharpenstein, Sherwood, Shipman, Shirts, Shultz, Smith, Snook, Snyder, Sovereen, Stark, Stein, Stephens, Stiger, Streit, Struble, Stryker, Sutphin, Sutton, Swackhamer, Swarts Swazey, Teel, Teeple, Terry, Terryberry, Thomas, Tiger Titman, Todd, Topping, Trimmer, Van Atta, Van Buskirk, Van Fleet, Van Horne, Van Nest, Van Pelt, Van Sickle, Van Vechten, Vernoy, Vescelius, Vogt, Vosler, Wack, Waldorf, Walters, Ward, Waer, Weise, Welsch, Weller, Werts, Wildrick, Wiley, Willett, Wills, Wintermute, Wire, Wolf, Woodhull, Wortman, Yawger and Youngs.  Part III  consists of 8 Appendices:  Ministers, Mount Olive Churches, Churches of Flanders, The "Old Straw" Lutheran Church at Phillipsburg, Ringoes, Mt. Pleasant, Knowlton, Stillwater; Lists of names of persons naturalized, Settlers on "Society Lands," Signer's to Weyand's Call, Customers of German Valley storekeeper, 1763.  Used, in good condition.  The index contains only those names which are out of their alphabetical order. [ in the sketch those may be mostly spouse surnames that married into the main name.]  Even omitting the ones that are IN their alphabetical order, there are 26 pages of double columned names here.  Index is printed in very small type.  [Keep your Magnabrite handy!  Only $25 to multiply the light on the page by four times, and multiply the size of the type by four times.]  Illustrations are well done, but the type is smaller than usual in this book.  PRICE:  $48


NJ - YOGS CRAZY CRATE 73:  BOOK 3 & 4:  NEWJERSEY:  DIGGING FOR ANCESTORS IN THE GARDEN STATEBy Kenn Stryker Rodda, Litt.D., F.A.S.G., C.G.  Published by the Detroit Society for Genealogical Research, Inc,  ©1970 [One copy is dated 1970].  [One copy of the Reprint is dated 1984.]  This is a transcript of a talk given by the author before the Genealogy Workshop held in connection with the Local History Workshop in Detroit, Michigan.  I have a line of Drakes from New Jersey and I learned more from this book than I learned while in New Jersey.  I was astonished to learn that I had more books in my library at home on my county, than I found on the shelf in the New JerseyState Library! This was back in the 1970s, so I hope they have more books in their library by now.  They are especially needed in New Jersey as the First Federal Census for this state was taken for the 1830 census.  All prior Census, 1790, 1800, 1810 and 1820, have been lost or destroyed by fires.  A fine nine-page bibliography is listed, so you know what has already been compiled (and indexed) to assist you with your research.  Remember to ask for these at your local library.  PRICE:  $9 for each.
