Product Description

Four hundred years of history reveal a family that survived the times, as they struggled to be successful and persevered against tragedy, moral dilemmas or ambivalence, and the changing landscape of America. Their story affords the opportunity to examine both the broad strokes of history as they left England, Ireland, and Scotland and the smaller details of life of the common man (and woman and child) as they emigrated from the large coastal plantations of their forefathers to Tennessee hill country before the Civil War to small town U.S.A. in the Midwest at the turn of the 19th century. Biographies of six Miller siblings, all born in the early 20th century just before the Great Depression, complete this saga of American life as it unfolded from Jamestown to 1950s mid-century modern.

Photographs, maps, documents, and a Proper Name Index will aid the genealogical researcher in finding their own roots. Also included are Ancestors and Descendants charts with numerous surnames, including: Andrews, Banks, Beauchamp, Buchanan, Chandler, Claiborne, Cook, Eads, Fleming, Gainer, Grimes, Jefferson, Jeffress, Johnson, Miller, Montgomery, Roseland, Royall, Royster, Southerland, Steely, Stokes, Stone, Sudbury, Taylor, Thompson, Turpin, Walker, Ward, Wheatley, Whitley, Whitworth, and many others.
