More Description

Many of the early Valley of Virginia settlers resided on or near the Long Grey Trail, and the author brings the full weight of his acumen to bear on the Valley settlements, more especially on that part of Augusta County later formed into Rockingham. There was perhaps no family more intimately associated with the early history of Rockingham County than the Harrisons and their connections, the county seat itself being named for one of them. Appropriately, then, this work sets forth a detailed genealogy of the Harrisons of Augusta and their Harrison cousins throughout Virginia and in large parts of the United States and Britain. The author also traces the ancestry of about 50 other families who settled in this area, as well as provides articles on colonial and Indian wars and the Revolution, documentary accounts of political upheaval and transition, analyses of Virginia Valley migrations, including German, Scotch-Irish, and Pennsylvanian migrations, and sketches of early churches, militia, and courts.
