Originally published in 1984, this new edition has been re-typeset, and a full name index provided to aid researchers. The first land record book for Greenbrier covers not only the current county area, but "Greater Greenbrier as it was originally created, a county encompassing nearly all of central West Virginia and extending to the Ohio River. In this first book are found hundreds of preemption grants given to settlers who occupied lands in the region prior to the county's creation, and a wealth of information can be gleaned about the very earliest settlers of the county and region from this volume.
