The History of Cape May County, New Jersey from the Aboriginal Times to the Present Day. Lewis Townsend Stevens. Paperback, (1897), 2008, Illus., 480 pages.
Mr. Stevens' concise history of Cape May County, New Jersey is the standard work on its topic, and it is reminiscent of other turn-of- the-century local histories in its treatment of its subject matter. Genealogists will want to pick through the chapters for sketches of colonial inhabitants of Cape May, the locations of their properties, and some birth, marriage, and death records pertaining to them. The volume can be unlocked for such other treasures as lists of Cape May County participants in the Revolution, War of 1812, and Civil War; chapters on Cape May luminaries Jacob Spicer, Aaron Leaming, and John Hatton; biographical sketches of Cape May notables living in the mid-19th century; and various lists appended to the volume.
