Family Sketches Derived from Oren F. Morton's "History of Pendleton County, West Virginia."

This history book gives a detailed account of the history of Pendleton County, WV. It was originally published in Franklin, WV, in 1910. It has gone through several reprints and can now be ordered directly from Blair's Book Service. Since there is a wealth of family history information contained in this book, I am posting abridged versions of the family sketches. In addition to the data found in Morton, supplemental information has been provided on the families from the following sources:

The 1850, 1860, 1870, and 1900 Federal Census of Pendleton County.

Marriages of Pendleton County, VA (1788-1853) by Mary Harter (1978).

Pendleton County, VA, Marriage Bonds (1791-1853) by Mary Harter (1979).
