Shenandoah County, Virginia: A Study of the 1860 Census, Volume 3
Marvin J. Vann
This book contains a wealth of information for anyone with even remote family roots in Shenandoah County. The census records include the number of people per family, their ages during the census, occupations held by family members, births, deaths, where buried, race, even histories of the land and area where they lived. One example of these histories is Rude Hill. This hill, above where the Steenberger/Rude family resided, is regarded as one of the finest views of the entire valley. A brief history of members of the family by marriage is also included in some entries. Illustrations include homes, family members, churches, notices in newspapers, and town scenes. Because the records are listed by dwelling number, an every name index is included along with the dwelling number of the family to make the search for relatives easier.
