Make no mistake, O'Neall & Chapman's book is a master work of the historical times, events, places and the people who inhabited Newberry Co,SC in the region's early times. A treasure trove of information for family historians as well as dedicated genealogists, some facts concerning specific individuals may have been omitted by O'Neall, but I rather doubt that this pique was the habit of Dr. Chapman.
As an avid family historian The Annals of Newberry has been a world of invaluable help. If I had to buy it in order to access its well documented & helpful contents, I would have had to pay in excess of >$140 in today's currency. Since it is offered here as a freely downloadable PDF file, all 816 pg. of this book can be easily saved & accessed for personal use when opened up on your laptop or tablet.
Please note that I rate this book as 5 star.
