The Gazetteer of Scotland available now
Heritage Books, Inc. is proud to offer The Gazetteer of Scotland by
Rev. John Wilson. When this work was compiled in 1882 the Rev. John
Wilson and his publishers had a conviction that it "would supply a
long-felt want: namely a Gazetteer of Scotland, extensive enough to
embrace every Town and Village in the Country, of any importance...
and yet portable in form and moderate in price.: To add value to the
work, the compiler extracted population and other information from
the 1881 Census Returns. It further provides statistics of real
property, notices of public works, public buildings, churches,
schools, etc. The natural history and historical incidents connected
with particular localities have also been included. (1882), 2002, 5®

Munro assistance please
Myrna Schkolne, 300 Geechcliff Court, Winston Salem., NC 27104,
writes: I am researching the story of young Lt. Munro, who was
killed by a tiger in India in December 1792. My interest is
Staffordshire figures, and this gory event is captured in clay. I
have read all contemporary accounts of the event . Lt. Munro is
referred to as "young Munro", "unfortunate Munro", "the only son of
Sir Hector Munro" etc.- but his first name is never mentioned! In
all pottery books published in recent decades, he is referred to as
Lt. Hector Munro, without any reference source for the "fact".

Notice about Chinkypin I, II, III and addendum...
Chinkypin I was first published in 1975 by Mrs. Dorothy Henderson
Price using material that originated with the Echols County High
School Composition Class from interviews with citizens from Echols
County. Chinkypin II and III were subsequent magazines that were
published. Mrs. Price completed the work on Chinkypin III after her
retirement and this volume contains a great deal of genealogy of
early Echols County pioneers.
When the Echols County Historical
Society, Inc. was formed, Mrs. Dorothy Henderson Price, very
generously donated her rights to the Chinkypin project to the
Society. The Society decided to reprint the Chinkypin and include
addendum material that had been submitted to Mrs. Price since her
retirement. The compiled hard back volume was made available June
1999 and included corrections and additions submitted to Mrs. Price
prior to 1999 that were placed with the appropriate information. We
have now reprinted this hard back book and added a short index on
places and things. The pictures are wonderful in this edition.
This book contains transcriptions
of history of Echols County, oral interviews, articles about Echols
County citizens and pioneers, old timey recipes and songs,
instructions on building log buildings, making lye soap, etc. and is
rich in folklore.
The books are available from the
Echols County Historical Society and are $50.00 each plus shipping
if needed. Contact Dot McLeod, Secretary, Echols Co. Historical
Society, 1505 Culpepper Rd., Lake Park, GA 31636, phone (229)
