Pendleton County History

Book Description:

Early days in Pendleton County, West Virginia, are recalled through a mixture of colorful tales and factual data in this booklet comprised of excerpts from five rare vintage books: Historical Collections of Virginia by Henry Howe (1845); West Virginia in History, Life, Literature and Industry by Morris Purdy Shawkey (1928); History of West Virginia by Virgil A. Lewis (1889); ; A History of Pendleton County West Virginia by Oren F. Morton (1910); Virginia, a Guide to the Mountain State, a WPA publication (1941). This booklet is only 58 pages long, but because of its 8 1/2" x 11" size, we were able to put two or more pages from the original source materials on each page, so it is packed with information. The spiral bound booklet is printed one-sided on 60# opaque paper. The front cover is a parchtex card stock, protected with a vinyl sheet. Some of the subjects to be found in this booklet are: Edmund Pendleton; Seybert's Fort; a biography of Major John C. Bond; WPA points of interest in the area; a List of Settlers before 1760; the Masonic Order in Franklin; Early Franklin; County Buildings; a School in 1830; Slaveholders in 1860; Population figures; Items from a Day-Book of a Merchant of Franklin in 1820; Churches; County Officials Before 1865; County Officials Under West Virginia (to 1881); School Teachers in 1872; Leading Farmers of 1860; Taxpayers in 1860; Pendleton Legislators; Pendleton Doctors, Dentists, Lawyers and Preachers; Surveys and Patents before 1788 (many names); A list of Tithables for 1790 (more names); Slavery in Pendleton; the Civil War; Names of soldiers and those exempted from service in 1794 and later; Pendletonians in the "War of 1861"; Confederate Regiments Containing Pendleton Men; the Battle of New Market; Roster of Men in Confererate Service. The booklet contains many names of interest to genealogical research.
