3 Growing Up in Bloody Mingo, West Virginia
Andrew Chafin
(2003), 2004, 5x8, paper, 140 pp, Heritage Books
This book can be described as funny, irreverent, and serious all at once! It is a 1950's-era coming-of-age story that takes place in the coal mining district of Mingo County, West Virginia. This area is the home of the famous Hatfield-McCoy feud, and the author is a great-great nephew of "Devil Anse" Hatfield, the leader of the clan. Told with a humorous tongue in cheek, these Appalachian stories of childhood hopes, loves, adventures and misadventures are spiced with social and political commentary on the times. Even if you didn't grow up in the Appalachians, you'll enjoy this reminiscence of a more innocent time.

Seven appendices and 75 photographs and maps enhance this work.
Price: 62.00 USD



11 Seven Hundred Years of the Beville Family
Asselia S. Lichliter
(1999), 2007, 6x9, cloth, indices, 642 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
This is not a typical "who begat whom" genealogy. While it is a meticulously researched genealogical record, it is also a gripping story of the Beville family, set against the lives and times of contemporary England, from the day that the original deBeville knight came ashore with William the Conqueror in 1066 A.D. through the arrival of a lone immigrant, Essex Beville, who came to the New World to find his fortunes in the Virginia Colony in 1660. It is from Essex that all Bevilles of any spelling who live in America today are descended. The first edition of 700 Years was written and privately printed in 1976 by Asselia S. Lichliter, a linear descendant of Essex Beville. In the course of her research, she spent years in England and France conducting exhaustive research at every historical site she could think of, consulting church records, court documents, deeds, wills, and of course, the extensive records held by the British Museum. She then combined the fruits of this research with her extensive knowledge of English history, producing a book which smoothly integrates a detailed, unbroken genealogy with the context of the times in which the Beville and various collaterally related families lived. It is small wonder that a thousand copies were sold well before her death in 1996. To meet the continuing demand for this fine work, it is being reissued in a second, specially revised and updated hard-bound edition, one which exceeds the first edition in level of detail and areas of research which have been explored. The book contains several illustrations, a glossary of terms found in medieval documents, detailed indices after each chapter, and appendices including links to other families.

12 The Browns of Bedford County, Virginia, 1748-1840. A Collection of Brown Surname Records Extracted from Primary and Secondary Sources
Barbara Brown Eakley
(1998), 2008, 5x8, paper, index, 192 pp, Heritage Books
Who was John Brown? Who were the ancestors of John Brown? Every Brown researcher can empathize with the dilemmas inherent in tracing that name. It would seem that most villages in early Virginia had a John Brown in every generation. The author's John Brown was said by family tradition to have "come from" Bedford County. Was that true? Bedford County in Virginia was on the path of the great Wagon Road which led from Philadelphia to Harper's Ferry to Tennessee. Uncounted scores of immigrants moved westward along that road, settling in a county for a few years before moving farther west. Bedford County records reflect that pattern of settling and moving, settling and moving. Many Brown families passed through Bedford County on their way west and left recorded evidence of having been there. Many of their family members, slaves, neighbors and business associates were named with them. Some 606 other surnames are associated with Brown in those records. The author studied all available records, and was able to rule out that the ancestors of her John Brown were from Bedford County. He was the descendant of several generations of pioneer settlers in Montgomery County, Virginia, but had married into a family which had moved there from Bedford County. Every genealogist knows that to rule out is to get closer to the truth. This collection of abstracted records is intended as a finding tool for researchers. The abstracts are written in modern English, and place names have been standardized.

13 A Cupp for All Times
Barbara Cupp Woods
2004, 8x11, paper, index, 472 pp, Heritage Books
Do you really know where the majority of your Cupp ancestors lived and died? With obituaries, death notices and necrologies from Alabama to Wyoming, the amount of content found in this book will be unsurpassed by any other published to date. You will finally be able to put all the pieces of your family line together. This information dates from 1870 in Pennsylvania forward to 2003 with extensive coverage in all the major migratory states. Extremely easy to use, the state and every name index will help you determine the final resting place of your relatives and all their surviving descendants and heirs. The author spent many years researching her own Cupp line. She researched burial places, land records, marriage records, census records, church records, etc. She has determined the obituary record to be the most invaluable for content as far as places lived, children, marriages and final resting places. These entries are arranged by state, in chronological order by date of death. Barbara Cupp Woods was born in West Texas and has lived in Louisiana for 25 years. She has been researching her family history for ten years and hopes that this project will benefit all Cupps, not just her own line.
