The Settlement and Indian Wars of the Western Parts of Virginia and Pennsylvania from 1763-1783. Joseph Doddridge. Softcover, (1912) repr. 2004, Index, 320 pp.
This is a classic piece of Americana containing a wealth of information on the rousing events associated with the settlement of western Virginia and Pennsylvania, and of the hardy families who first brought civilization there. "Doddridge's Notes" first appeared in 1824 and a second edition with some additions was published in 1876. This reprint has been made from the third, enlarged edition which appeared in 1912; in addition to the original "Notes" it includes a memoir of Rev. Doddridge by his daughter Narcissa; and several other additions, such as a short history of the Doddridge family and biographical notes on Major Samuel McColloch, Captain Oliver Brown, the Teter and Manchester families, Michael Cresap and Simon Girty.
