3 A Salter Family History
Albert L. Salter
2005, 8˝x11, paper, index, 270 pp, Heritage Books
This book represents more than twenty years of research on an ancient Shropshire, England, family that has never before received close scrutiny. It should interest both English and American genealogists and family historians.The history follows the Salter line from its proven beginnings in Shropshire, England, in the late sixteenth century to the present. It traces the lives of the first three generations in a relatively unchanging agrarian setting, moves through the period of transition to modest geographic and social mobility experienced by the next three generations, continues with the bifurcation and reunification of the line in the nineteenth century, and finally arrives at the widespread geographic settlement and social diversity that mark the twentieth century family in England and the United States.Ten generations of the Salter family are discussed. Collateral families included in the history include notably Edwards, Evans, Feast, Gough, Jackson, Kyffin, Langford, Linley, Lyth, Owen, Shaw, Simon (England and Wales), Harward (Ireland), Cooper, Hewins, Horton, Lockwood, Pistole, Thayer, Webster, and Wogenstahl (United States). A full-name plus subject index, a separate index to Salter names, and an appendix with a modified register listing the English and American descendants of the author's great-grandparents, James and Mary Salter, complete this work.

Daniel Trubey of Franklin County, Pennsylvania: The First Four Generations, Alycon Trubey Pierce

4 Daniel Trubey of Franklin County, Pennsylvania: The First Four Generations
Alycon Trubey Pierce
2000, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 411 pp, Heritage Books
This Trubey family traces its American beginnings to a soldier bought and brought from Germany by England to assist the British in quelling the rebellious Colonials during what is known on this side of the Atlantic as the American Revolution. Daniel Trubey (or Truby or Drube), born in 1750 in Ostuffeln, Germany, served with the von Bose Regiment which met defeat at Yorktown in 1781. Daniel slipped away from the prisoner-of-war barracks at Frederick, Maryland, and settled in nearby Waynesboro, Franklin County, Pennsylvania, where he met and married, circa 1784, Margaret Mack (or Mock), the great-granddaughter of Alexander Mack (1679-1735) who founded the Church of the Brethren in America.After the deaths of Daniel (circa 1807) and Margaret (circa 1822), their four children - Nancy, David, Jacob, and Daniel - all removed initially to Stark County, Ohio. The genealogy documents the first four generations of the Hessian soldier, tracking those descendants to Kansas homesteads, Montana dairy farms, Missouri confectionaries, California placer mines, Colorado mining camps, and even Palestinian mission fields. The Civil War pensions of Trubey descendants helped to document not only their service in the Union Army, but also the composition of their families, and their multiple post-war residences.While research focused upon the first four generations, 304 descendants in the fifth generation are identified, and 177 descendants in the sixth generation appear wherever evidence came to light which documented them as well. An undocumented Trubey genealogy typescript prepared in the 1940s served as the inspiration for this study, and a verbatim transcript of it appears as an appendix to this publication. A second appendix presents transcriptions of surviving letters written or received by Trubey descendants from 1847 to 1892. The 400-page volume ends with an every-name and place index which includes some subjects as well (e.g., Civil War, divorces, ministers, twins, church and cemetery names).

Lovinia’s Child: A Depression Tale, Barbara Venton Montgomery

5 Lovinia’s Child: A Depression Tale
Barbara Venton Montgomery
2005, 5˝x8˝, paper, 106 pp, Heritage Books
This captivating memoir takes the reader back in time and introduces a memorable cast of characters who played a significant role in the author's young life. This eyewitness account is rich with details of day-to-day life during the hard times and difficult circumstances of the thirties and forties when the Great Depression and World War II framed most people's lives. "To be Jewish and Native American in or near Chicago in 1938 was difficult, and that is an understatement." Barbara Venton Montgomery, "Bub," an intelligent, strong willed child, was abandoned by her father early in her life, and then became a ward of the court during her mother's confinement to a tuberculosis sanitarium. Young Barbara's years in foster care were not uneventful! The author survived her childhood, the Great Depression, and Calumet City, and has preserved the details of her fascinating life that included everything from Al Capone and "Sin City;" to Grandpa Crawford's house in the Ozarks; to homemade ice cream with Uncle Maple; to her mother's stand against milk dumping; to the charms of the Hupmobile. This tale reminds us that human nature remains much the same, but the minutiae of daily life, conditions in schools, economic challenges, and social values are a reflection of their era and add another dimension to this very readable book.

David Wing and Ponoka’s Dakota District Pioneers, Beverly Smith Vorpahl

6 David Wing and Ponoka’s Dakota District Pioneers
Beverly Smith Vorpahl
2005, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 180 pp, Heritage Books
In 1877, David Wing and five other families discussed the possibility of moving from Brome County, Quebec, where farming was difficult at best, and near impossible at worst. Farming prairie land, where homesteads were being given away in America, looked promising from their vantage point in the North Country of Canada. The group thought that Kansas might be their answer, so David, his wife and their two toddlers, and a bachelor brother, loaded their covered wagons and set out for what they hoped would be their promised land. The Wild West, with its rowdy cowboys, was not what the group had in mind. In 1880, the Quebec families began arriving in Dakota Territory, where they made their home for the next twenty years until the drought, dry wells, and grasshoppers drove them out. Their next quest was the Northwest Territories, where they could start fresh with new homesteads and the hope of a permanent home. This narrative history follows David Wing, and those who traveled with him, from his original home in Quebec, to the Chisholm Trail in Kansas, to a homestead in South Dakota, and ultimately, to the settlement in Ponoka, Dakota District. This story is rich with details of their travels and their lives, including what life was like for a Canadian farmer in the mid-1800s, the overwhelming responsibilities of a homesteader's wife, wildfires, and much more. The book also delves into the life of Corliss Smith Wing, son of David, and takes a cursory look at some of David's ancestors.

David F. Whitt
(2004), 2007, 8.5x11, paper, index, 2 vols., 624 pp
The goal of this book is to prove the origin and history of the Whitt family from Etowah County, Alabama. Research by William Whitt's descendants determined William had lived in South Carolina as early as 1798, migrated to Franklin County, Tennessee, as early as 1811, and pioneered into Alabama some time before 1824. William Whitt was a great-grandson of the emigrant, John Witt-Whitt, who emigrated from England to Virginia circa 1666. The four consensus sons of John Witt-Whitt have been identified as John Witt II, William Witt, Edward Whitt, and Richard Whitt Sr.-the Witt-Whitt family of old Virginia. In 2002, a DNA study confirmed that the four consensus sons of John Witt-Whitt were related.

20 Wittry, Witry, Vitry: A Family History
Eugene J. Wittry
1996, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 488 pp, Heritage Books
This book traces the known members of a family whose documented origin is in Luxembourg in the late 16th century. The family name originates from a Roman villa named Victoriacus which was located in today's Champagne region of France. By the late 17th century the name Victoriacus had evolved into many variations, including Vitry-sur Orne, the name of a town in northern France. This is the immediate origin for the name Vitry or Witry. From these roots, the name has taken on a variety of spellings due to regional influences, in particular the Wittry spelling common to the United States.The author begins the family tree with Peter Witry, born in Budange, France, circa 1575, and follows those descendants of Peter Witry who carried the Witry name in one of its various spellings. In all this book includes more than 5,000 people, plus indexes and references such as sequence and generation numbers which help the reader find his or her roots. The book also includes a variety of information about individual family members.The author also specifically examines the family's United States branch. The first members of the Witry family in the United States were Jacob and Magdalena Wittry, who arrived in New York in 1854. It is from this couple that most of the Wittry families in the United States are descended. Jacob Wittry was a direct descendant of the original Peter Witry. The book includes information about some thirty other Wittrys who came to the United States after Jacob and Magdalena.For each individual, Mr. Wittry lists as much of the following information as possible: the dates and locations of birth and death, the cause of death, the date and location of marriage, information about the marriage, alias(es), occupation(s), title(s), interesting facts, the village or town in which the person lived, the name or number of the house where the person lived, father's name, mother's name and number of children.The book also contains three appendices. The first is an index of wives' names, which can assist in locating a specific Wittry or Witry contained within the book. The second appendix is a study of the Louisiana Vitry family. This family is descended from Alfred Vitry, whose origins lie in France, circa 1854, and may or may not be a branch of Peter Witry's family tree. The third appendix is a study of the Kentucky Wittry family. This family is descended from Nicholas-Joseph Wittry, whose origins are believed to be in Alsace-Lorraine circa 1840. The same information is provided for the individual members of this tree as is for those in Mr. Wittry's main text.Also included is a brief history of Luxembourg and France as the origins of the family, and a description of the life of a typical family in Luxembourg during the 16th through 19th centuries. The book contains as well maps of the region in Luxembourg from which the family originated, including the location of towns important to the family history, plus 20 photos of significant landmarks.
