Index to the 1850 Census of Pennsylvania: Berks County, Bucks County, Lancaster County, Luzerne and Wyoming Counties, Northampton County
While Mr. Featherston's annals of old Appomattox are not without historical interest, genealogists will surely wish to pour over the family histories for clues to their own ancestry. Featured in the historical narrative are sketches of Appomattox's ante bellum leadership, a first-hand account of the Confederate surrender from the diary of the author's grandmother, a map which reconstructs the buildings of the county seat in 1865, treatises on the county's businesses, educational system and churches, and brief biographies of the white and African-American civic leaders of the author's day. Of still greater interest, of course, are the 125 genealogies of varying length of Appomattox County families.
