From Cathey Hargrove: I live in Shawsville. If I can do a quick look up for someone in the library or go to a gravesite and write down an inscription, etc., I would be happy to do that. Many times I wish someone in the county I am researching would be willing to do this. I have a three year old, so cannot do research that would take several hours, but I am willing to help where I can.

Dear Family, "Cousins," and Friends,
I'm so pleased to be able to tell you that the book, The Descendants of Hezekiah Sumner of Montgomery and Floyd Counties, Virginia, is at last finished and ready for publication.  As many of you already know, the book was begun by Peggy (Burton) Rich, and is a compilation of over 25 years of  her research and information contributed by family members.  In 1998, she asked me to be her editor and I accepted with great enthusiasm for the project.  After Peggy's death on May 13, 1999, I was asked to complete the book and see it through publication and distribution. With the assistance of Betty Barrett, the editor, we have doubled the number of individuals named in the book, now over 5,400 people, including births, deaths and marriages up to March 2001 (if current information has been made available).  It is documented, with 74 photographs, most of them family pictures, plus maps, wills, family stories, and articles about Floyd County and its residents.  The book is hardbound in navy blue, with gold lettering stamped on the cover and spine.  There are 434 pages including a complete index of the individuals appearing in the book.

After April 30, 2001, the price of the book will be $47 plus shipping. Because of the expense of privately publishing family histories, quantities are limited.  In addition, small numbers of reprints are prohibitively expensive.  Irene S. Underwood, 1624 Tradd Court, Chesterfield, MO  63017, and enclose a check or money order in the above amount for each copy requested.  Please do not send cash.  Be sure to include your postal address, a phone number, and/or an email address (if you have one). 

The Sumner book was created through the efforts and contributions of many people.  It has been an adventure to be part of researching and completing it and getting it ready for publication.  Peggy Rich, Betty Barrett, and I offer it to the family and other interested researchers in the hope that you will enjoy it and find it useful.
