Some Early Settlers: Being a History of the Following Families: Allen, Littler, Metcalfe, Shouse, and Short Sketches of the Following Families: Barhyte, Barret and Cousins
It would have been impossible to compile this history without the assistance of a great many people, and mistakes will be found, for which I crave indulgence. Library books have been searched. Old family bibles have been invaluable in furnishing data. County Records have been secured and many letters received covering items of interest, and I wish to thank every one who contributed in even the smallest way toward the completion of this book. -- Taken from the front matter, written by the author Mary Cousins McCabe.
