Back in the 1980s, I copied a booklet from the Virginia State Library Archives entitled "History of Amelia County". It's been a while since I read my copy & when I started reading it again the other day, I decided to transcribe it at the same time to share with others.

I think it's very interesting, covers a great variety of topics including Paineville, the early post office, tobacco raising & selling, mica mines, overseers, slavery, Johnson family, Whitworth family, Giles family, Infidel Club, Masonic lodge, Amelia County Marriages, Amelia County Court House, early life in Amelia County, early churches in Amelia County, Vaughan Family, brandy making, whiskey making, ordinaries, early doctors, Amelia Sulphur Springs, Mills, early Colonial church in Virginia, Old Paineville Church, early land grants, marriages, etc. There are tons of places and names mentioned in this relatively small booklet.

I have put this transcription on my rootsweb web site -- the link is available from the General Research Pages or Site News & Updates links found on the main page:

As always, I hope others find it as interesting as I did & that it helps someone w/ their research! Corrections & Comments are welcome -- just sign the guestbook on the site. If you have research or documents you would like to share relating to topics or families on the site, please let me know.

Susan :)
