Publisher's notes on the 2004 edition by Clearfield Publishing:, July 15, 2007
This review is from: History of Augusta County, Virginia (Paperback) Augusta County, Virginia, was formed in 1738 from Orange County and was itself the parent county, in whole or in part, of Bath, Botetourt, Frederick, Rockbridge, and Rockingham counties. A stronghold of Scotch-Irish settlement, Augusta commands great interest among genealogists because thousands of 18th- and 19th-century families passed through it en route to the West. J. Lewis Peyton's History of Augusta County, Virginia is the standard work on the county. . .
Genealogists will value the book, in part, as a companion volume to such Augusta County source record collections as Lyman Chalkley's Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement in Virginia. Of greater importance to genealogists, however, are the genealogical and biographical sketches of the following pioneering Augusta County families found in the Appendix to the volume: Baldwin, Bell, Campbell, Christian, Crawford, Fleming, Hanger, Hughes, Johnson, Koiner, Lee, Lewis, McCue, McCulloch, McDowell, Madison, Mathews, Peyton, Poe, Porterfield, Preston, Sheffey, Stuart, Tate, Waddell, Wayt, Wetzel, and Zane. The Clearfield edition contains a revised and enlarged name index to the work prepared by Charles R. Carrier in 1953.
