Drawing upon the official Birth Register No. 1, 1853-1877, the authors have abstracted vital data for over 10,900 persons born in the county during this period. Each record includes: name of child, date of birth; race, sex, alive/dead; place of birth and parents; parent's occupation and legal place of residence; and the person reporting the birth to authorities. This data will prove invaluable for accurately locating an ancestor in Rockbridge County.
