This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine

use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

PREFACE

It is hardly necessary to state that as in previous volumes every possible effort
has been made to secure absolute accuracy, as to the genealogical tables contained
in Volimie VI and the historical facts narrated therein.

The family records in almost every instance have been compiled from data in
the possession of descendants of the founders of the families and from well authen-
ticated public records. Most all of the pedigrees have been proved by American
genealogbts of the highest standing.

To those whom I am indebted for access to their priceless records, and
for the necessary assistance and encouragement, which has enabled me to edit
this volume, I here extend my appreciation and thanks, more particularly to John
Bailey Nicklin, Jr., Esq., of Chattanooga, Tennessee; Mr. Gilmer Speed Adams of
Louisville, Kentucky; Mr. Samuel Putnam Avery of Hartford, Connecticut; the
late Hon. Frank Baker of Chicago, Illinois; John Caldwell Calhoun, Esq., New
York City; Charles W. Johnson, Esq., St. Paul, Minnesota; Charles Kingsbury
Miller, Esq., Chicago, Illinois; William Lincoln Palmer, Esq., Boston, Massa-
chusetts; Major Richard Stockton, Jr., United States Army; Hon. Charles Sey-
mour Whitman, Governor of New York; and John Barber White, Esq., Kansas
City, Missouri.

In the back of the volume will be found an index to the families published in
the previous five volumes.
