Vital Records of Three Burned Counties: Births, Marriages, and Deaths of King and Queen, King William, and New Kent Counties, Virginia, 1680-1860. Therese A. Fisher. Paperback, (1995), 2006, 5½x8½, index, 154 pp.
The author is the first person to attempt to compile some of the nearly two centuries of missing information from this region. Ms. Fisher recreated the information from church records, newspapers, family Bibles, private notes, deeds, records from other counties, and difficult-to-find, out-of-print county histories from the early 1900s. Whenever possible, an entry includes: date of birth, marriage, and/or death, place of residence, and names of parents. There are also about 150 slave entries, which include the names of their owners. Each entry has a source indentified which allows the researcher to verify the information.
