Virginia and North Carolina Genealogies: Virginia [and WV] Families of Louisa, Hanover, and Monroe Counties. Gayle K. Blankenship. 1991.
The author’s goal in Virginia [and WV] Families of Louisa, Hanover, and Monroe Counties was to document the ancestry of her husband, Charles Philip Blankenship. In doing so, she not only uncovered the allied families named in the subtitle of the work, but also traced his family’s migration patterns from South Carolina to Monroe County, West Virginia; from Pennsylvania to Botetourt County, Virginia; from New Kent County, Virginia to Louisa and Hanover Counties, Virginia; and from Henrico County to Prince Edward County in Virginia. Containing pedigree charts, instructions on the drawing of land plats from deeds, individual chapters on each allied family, and comprehensive place and name indexes, this is an outstanding regional history.
