These early settlers moving into this area were of Scots-Irish, German and English descent. Even though this book is Brand New and never before published. It has many similarities to other county history books written from much earlier times. With such topics as trade and transportation, labor and industry, farming, politics, legal system, religion, education, natural disasters, and social & community relations - all important in the development of the county - are carefully discussed. This type of county history book can help one develop ideas or paths to those missing ancestors by showing the customs and traditions of the local residents.
