A History of Rockbridge County, Virginia
A History of Rockbridge County, Virginia - Oren F. Morton. Part One is a general history. Particular attention is given to the Scotch-Irish settlement of the area and the early pioneer days. Indian wars and captivities are also described, as are the effects of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars on the county. Family sketches round out this section. Part Two, the genealogical section, does not contain actual genealogies, but rather comprises many lists of names which will be of major interest to family researchers.
