In the late 1800s, starting with the centennial of the United States in 1876, many state, county, church, and other local histories were published across America. These often included information on a community's founding families and biographies of its prominent citizens.  I have collected a number of these biographies and transcribed them for this site.  It is important to note that these biographies do not cite sources, often include mistakes, and have inconsistencies.  For example, the founding member of the Rorick family is identified as both Dutch and German in different biographies of his descendants. I have tried to indicate those mistakes that I can document with the word "sic" in brackets, but otherwise I have I transcribed them as faithfully as possible.  Nonetheless, these biographies present valuable insights and information on their subjects.
