I would not recommend this book to anyone researching their Stith, Buckner families, nor use it in any way as documentation. The errors are just too great that they create more time spent on sorting between fact and fiction.
This book is highly influential, but in some parts the errors are extremely bad. Everything up to page 16 (the supposed English ancestry of the immigrant John Buckner) is a disaster of bizarre misinterpretations and outright falsehoods. Hardly a single conclusion in that section is correct. Probably the worst errors, after the English genealogy, are in the treatment of William Buckner of "the Neck" on page 112 ff. The alleged immigrant Thomas Buckner of "the Dragon" on pages 154 and 167 never existed. Thomas Buckner of "Lake Farm" (p. 87), Frances Buckner (p. 122), George Buckner (p. 130), and Thomas Buckner "of Mill Hill" (p. 171) are demonstrably put into the wrong families.
