Robert H. Moore, II
Biographical sketches and genealogical profiles continue to be an important aspect of this series. This volume is arranged in chronological sections: Pre-Colonial, Early Colonial and the Revolution (sixteen articles); Early and Antebellum Page County (sixteen articles); American Civil War (twenty-nine articles); World War I (ten articles); Post World War I Military (three articles); Surnames and Genealogical Research Tools (twenty-eight articles); and Miscellaneous (three articles). The first two sections discuss Native American raids, European immigration, travel, slavery and life in early Page County. The Civil War section tells about Confederate women spies, various battles, Loyalist claims, postwar pensions, and Confederate veterans. The World War I section describes the wartime and postwar experiences of some of Page County's veterans. The Surnames and Genealogical Research Tools section gives lots of good advice and includes articles on the following Page County families: Booton/Booten, Finter, Forrer, Gibbons, Ham, Harris, Huffman, Jordan, Keyser, Kite, Pence, Richards, and Stoneberger. The final section covers historic sites and tourism in Page County. The comprehensive index includes names, places, events and military units.
