Genealogy of Some Early Families in Grant and Pleasant Districts, Preston County, West Virginia
Genealogy of Some Early Families in Grant and Pleasant Districts, Preston County, W. Va.. Edward T. King. (1933).

Grant and Pleasant Districts, in Preston County, West Virginia, were formed in 1852. Prior to 1863 Preston County was in Virginia. It was carved out of Monongalia County as early as 1818 and is contiguous to Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and Garrett County, Maryland. The early families of Grant and Pleasant Districts, like their Maryland and Pennsylvania neighbors, were among the first to endure the rigors of mountain life. The genealogy of some of these families--Christopher, Connor, Cunningham, King, Metheny, Ryan, Street, Thorpe, Walls, Wheeler, and Wolf, those mostly of early 19th-century provenance--is the basis of this book. In addition to the genealogies, the work features separate sections on church records, Bible records, and cemetery records. As many as 7,500 persons are named in the convenient full-name index.
