Genealogy Books/Look-ups

I was sorting through my genealogy book collection today, putting some away that I don't use very often, and decided I should make a list of the books I have so if anyone else is looking for these books and would like an a quick, easy look-up, I could provide that to them. I don't have an exceedingly large collection by any means, but I have some pretty solid reference books that have assisted me many times in my genealogy research and which may help others.

If someone comes across this post through searching online for a certain book and would like me to perform a look-up for them, please contact me.

These are in no particular order, just the order they are in on my shelf. Besides what is listed, I also have solid collections of books on Arkansas Civil War battles, Stand Watie and Cherokee Indians during the Civil War, the Dalton gang, and Kentucky feuds.

  1. Hi! I'm looking for information on Lawson Riley (1798-1829). I found this source for him. Can you look the info up for me? Thanks! (Lawson is noted in letters from John Wilson Jr., clerk in the Harrison County Courthouse, concerning Jesse Sr. pay and patent for service in War of 1812. Source: Type: Secondary; “The Colonial Riley Families of the Tidewater Frontier Volume 2” by Robert Shean Riley , pages K28-K29.)
