New in the Library!
Stoner Brethren, A History of John Stoner (circa 1705 – 1769) And His Descendants, was published in 1993 by the author, Richard R. Weber and recently donated to our collection. It is a wonderful resource with names of many local families that married into the Stoner family and it covers up to the 8th generation from the immigrant. There are transcriptions of probate, tax and land records. Some photographs have been included. There are also many notes, references, a bibliography and it is fully indexed. This is a wonderful resource for those researching those elusive Brethren of the area that is now the western part of Carroll County.
We are very grateful to the donor for this book and feel sure that it will be of value to our researchers.
Look for it in the Family History book section.
Note: If you are considering donating slightly used books from your collection that you are no longer using, check our library catalog to see if it is something that we already own.
