Can someone make a copy of one or two pages for me from the book, "Pioneer Families of Franklin County, Virginia", by Marshall Wingfield, 1964? I am researching Robert HILL, w/Violet LINUS, children:

Swinfield
Thomas
JoAnna
Ruth
Mary
Hannah
Linus

Have been informed that Robert is mentioned in the book, and would like to obtain a copy of this material. Have not been able to obtain a copy of the book at my local library.

Thanks,
Jim Gray

Barb,
In the Book "Pioneer Families of Franklin County" does the book have an Alphabetica Index at the back? If so, can you please tell me if any of the following couples are listed in the book? If some of them are listed then I will purchase the book.

William H Harrison & wife, Cynthia 'Sina' Dillon (1800-1873)

William Dillon & wife, Frances 'Fanny' Blankenship (1760-1818)

James Dillon & wife, Mary Robinson (1726-1796)

Benjamin Wray & wife, Susannah Poteet (1750s-1840s)

Moses Wray and wife, Elizabeth Morris (1727-1804)

If you can give me an indication of how much info is available for any of the parties it would certainly help. My EMAIL is Hoffert@mindspring.com

Thanks Carrrie

Good Golly Connie! I found your problem...they are listed :
Joseph Thomasson & most likely Elizabeth Hodges.
No Hedges listed. This is what you need to search for at the courthouse..or on a websearch. I have 10+ pages only in the Pioneer Book of FC, I have all three and checked.
email me at tblankus@msn.com for instructions...:o) TT
