Roane County, West Virginia Families
Excerpted from History of Roane County, West Virginia from the
Time of Its Exploration to A.D. 1927
William H. Bishop
Bishop's History of Roane County is the standard work on its subject, but its chief appeal to the genealogist can be found in the hundreds of genealogical and historical essays of pioneer families of Roane County that comprise the second half of the work. Those essays, which, in most cases, are based upon interviews conducted by the author with a surviving family member, generally go back to the early nineteenth century and pertain to migrants from Virginia and the middle states possessing British, Irish, or Scotch-Irish stock.
