The Founding of Harman's Station. With an Account of the Indian Capitivity of Mrs. Jennie Wiley and the Exploration and Settlement of the Big Sandy Valley in the Virginias and Kentucky. William Elsey Connelley. The founding of Harman's Station on the Louisa River was directly caused by a tragedy as dark and horrible as any ever perpetrated by the savages upon the exposed and dangerous frontier of Virginia. The destruction of the home of Thomas Wiley in the valley of Walker's Creek, the murder of his children, the captivity of his wife by savages and her miraculous escape were the first incidents in a series of events in the history of Kentucky, which properly belong to the annals of the Big Sandy Valley. The second portion of this book is devoted to a history of the Connelley family, containing brief biographical sketches and genealogical information for some male and female descendents, touching on MacAlpine, MacGregor, Faichild, Blair, Burke and McCarty Families; Constantine Conley Jr., John Wesley Langley, and Milton Forest Conley. The Connelleys arrived in South Carolina in 1689 from Ireland, and were early settlers of Kentucky. This volume is enhanced by an abundance of wonderful illustrations, maps, and a very detailed index. (1910), 1988, 5½x8½, paper, index, 235 pp. [C0168]
