Genealogies of West Virginia Families is a consolidation of all the family history articles to have appeared throughout the complete run of The West Virginia Historical Magazine Quarterly, from 1901 to 1905. Though a rich source of West Virginia genealogical data, this short-lived periodical is very scarce and, moreover, has never before been indexed. Clearfield Company is delighted to rectify both of these shortcomings by reprinting the genealogical meat of the magazine and by adding a complete name index of more than 5,000 entries.

From the Back Cover:

Old Families of Louisiana enumerates the histories of the state's most notable families, many of whom arrived between 1720 and 1800 from locations throughout the United States and Europe. Prior genealogies recording the foundation families of Louisiana excluded lineages not of French or Spanish origin, but this comprehensive record includes not only those of French and Spanish ancestry, but also Irish, English, and American, now featuring such venerable lines as Claiborne, Kenner, Percy, Chalmette, Landry, Butler, and St. Martin.

A brief history of each family's old-world ancestry traces the nature of their lineage and how they came to inhabit the territory. Relying upon historical documents and oral histories, the authors provide a detailed, genealogically based narrative of the families' descendants, following them as far as the late nineteenth century and including such information as physical attributes, family legend, and old gossip. Reminiscent asides and nearly thirty accompanying illustrations embellish genealogical tables. From the anecdote of John James Audubon tutoring young Eliza Pirrie while he sketched his famous bird portraits to that of Madame de McNamara-Merieult's famously beautiful golden hair that Napoleon requested in exchange for a castle, little-known and illuminating facets of the family members' lives offer unique insight into their personalities and lifestyles.

Born in California in 1875, Stanley Clisby Arthur served as a war correspondent and journalist in the Spanish-American War before moving to Louisiana in 1915, where he later became head of the Louisiana Fish and Wildlife Department. He adopted the state as his home and proceeded to write several books about its history and character, including Pelican's Walking Tours of Old New Orleans, Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix 'Em, and Audubon: An Intimate Life of the American Woodsman. He died in 1963 at age eighty-eight.

George Campbell Huchet de Kernion, a member of one of the oldest and most illustrious Louisiana families himself, lent his genealogical and historical expertise to the enhancement of Arthur's project.

About the Author:

A native of California, Stanley Clisby Arthur spent several years as a journalist and served as a war correspondent in the Philippines during the Spanish-American War. Arthur arrived in Louisiana in 1915 and came to view it as his adopted home, dedicating much of his life to documenting its customs, culture, and history. During the Great Depression, Arthur was appointed regional director of the Survey of Federal Archives. This allowed him to delve even more deeply into the history of New Orleans and Louisiana, and he published several more historical and cultural works, including Pelican’s Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix ‘Em, Old Families of Louisiana, and Audubon: An Intimate Life of the American Woodsman. Stanley Clisby Arthur died in 1963 at the age of eighty-eight.

Book Description Clearfield Publishing. Condition: BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Softcover - The compilers of this work endeavored to assemble a comprehensive series of genealogical records of the pioneering families of Louisiana. The first part of book consists of a series of newspaper articles on various families by Charles Patton Dimitry, which originally appeared in the "New Orleans Times-Democrat" in 1892, and which were then corrected or expanded by the compilers. Since Dimitry's focus was confined to a limited number of early French and, to a lesser extent, Spanish families (which together constitute the first part of the volume), Arthur and Kernion augmented them with prominent Louisiana foundation families of English, Scottish, and Irish descent, as well as with additional French and Spanish families omitted by Dimitry and missing from Miss Grace King's "Creole Families of New Orleans." -This title is now printed on demand - please allow added time for shipment! A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Veteran Owned Bookshop in business since 1992!. Seller Inventory # 2767771
