Pioneer Settlers of Grayson County, Virginia
"Grayson County, Virginia is situated just north of the convergence of the North Carolina and Tennessee borders. It is famous in southwestern Virginia as the cradle of the New River settlements-perhaps the first settlements beyond the Alleghanies. The Nuckolls book is equally famous for its genealogies of the pioneer settlers of the county. Ranging from the eighteenth through the nineteenth century, and into the twentieth, and encompassing, on average, as many as a half-dozen generations in each line, the genealogies typically provide the names of the progenitors of the Grayson County line and dates and places of migration and settlement, and then, in fluid progression, the names of all offspring in the direct and sometimes collateral lines of descent" -- publisher website (August 2007).
