A History of Highland County, Virginia
This is the standard genealogical and historical reference on Highland County, with emphasis on the pioneer period and the early settlers and their families. An index of 11,000 entries, most with multiple references, has been added to the work for the convenience of the user. Although considered a history, the major portion of the book is devoted to a transcription of the records from the courthouses of Highland County and the adjoining counties of Augusta, Bath, Orange, and Pendleton and from the archives at Richmond. Part I surveys the early history of the county and includes lists of Highland militia and soldiers in various wars. Part II consists of genealogies of Highland County families, the descent from pioneer ancestors being traced for the main and collateral lines, with nearly 100 pages devoted to pioneer and sub-pioneer genealogy.
