Annals of Augusta County, Virginia, 1726 - 1871, Second Edition
Annals of Augusta County, Virginia, from 1726 to 1871. Jos. A. Waddell. (1901).

This is the standard history of Augusta County, Virginia, which at one time extended from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Mississippi River, east and west, and from the Great Lakes on the north to the northern boundary of the present state of Tennessee on the south. Waddell arranges Augusta County's history according to its political milestones, thus we have chapters on the county's first settlement, first courts, Indian wars, Augusta County in the Revolution, and, of course, a number of chapters on Augusta County in the Civil War. Genealogists will most appreciate the discussion of the migration trail out of Augusta County and, interspersed throughout the work, genealogical and biographical sketches of the following Augusta County families: Adams, Alexander, Anderson, Baxter, Bell, Blackburn, Bowyer, Breckenridge, Brown, Cameron, Campbell, Christian, Craig, Crawford, Cummings, Cunningham, Doak, Fleming, Floyd, Gamble, Graham, Hamilton, Harrison, Hays, Jones, Lyle, McClanahan, McDowell, McKee, McLaughlin, McNutt, Madison, Mathews, Moffett, Moore, Nelson, Poage, Preston, Smith, Stuart, Tate, Trimble, Waddell, Warwick, and Wilson. publishes genealogy books and CDs.
