Cripple Creek Days - Published in 1958
Author Mabel Barbee Lee
Publisher Doubleday and Company
City Cripple Creek
County Teller Colorado
State Colorado
Price $15.00 (plus $3.50 postage and handling)
Notes:
Cripple Creek Days is a nostalgic reminiscence of the last of the great Gold Rush towns written by Mable Barbee. Mabel's father Johnson R. Barbee was born in Kentucky. Under the threat of the Civil War, the family moved to a small farm in Weston, Missouri. But, Mabel's father had the wanderlust. After he attended one year at Liberty College, he left and enlisted in the Confederate Army. Four years later with the South defeated, Johnson headed for Virginia City, Nevada. He was in pursuit of the Gold Rush.

Mabel's book has a beautiful photo of her taken during her first year at Colorado College in 1902.

There are a number of excellent photos of life in Cripple Creek in this book.

I am not related, but I would like to connect this book with a family researcher or someone researching Cripple Creek.

Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy Vol. II Pennsylvania & New Jersey - Published in 1994 (orig 1938)
Author William Wade Hinshaw
Publisher Genealogical Publishing Co. Inc.
City
County Pennsylvania and New Jersey
State Pennsylvania and New Jersey
Price $75.00 (plus $8.00 postage and handling)
Notes:
Almost no class of records, religious or secular, has been kept as meticulously as the monthly meeting records of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). The oldest such records span three centuries of American history and testify to a general movement of population that extended from New England and the Middle Atlantic states southward to Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia; then west to Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. The importance of these records cannot be overstated. Not until recently have the vital statistics of Quakers been recorded in civil record offices. Thus, for more than two centuries, the only vital records identifying these people are to be met with in the Quaker records themselves. Fortunately, the monthly meeting records contain extensive lists of births, marriages, and deaths, as well as details of the removal of members from one meeting to another. (The monthly meeting, during which vital statistics are recorded, is in fact, a business meeting.)

Book Description-1126 pages
The second volume of the great Encyclopedia is complete in itself for the New Jersey and Pennsylvania monthly meetings which were part of the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. It includes all records of genealogical value, both Orthodox and Hicksite, known to be in existence for the meetings from the last quarter of the seventeenth century down to the time the work was originally published in 1938. The records are of two principal classes: (1) births and deaths and (2) minutes and marriages, and they are arranged in alphabetical order, by family name, under their corresponding monthly meeting. The marriages are arranged by the names of both brides and grooms. Also provided are abstracts of Quaker certificates of removal, which enable genealogists to trace Quaker ancestors from one monthly meeting to another.
