Hi Nadine, I too have been searching for the book you mention. I do not believe that too many remain.

I am trying to research John Orrell Tunstall. The Name is frequent in my line. The earliest John Orrell I have in my line was born March 18, 1793 in VA. On his death cert., his parents are listed as John and Frances Tunstall. I found a marriage bond in Bedford County, VA for a John Tunstall and Frances Martin. Interesting to note that the bond date was March 16 and marriage date March 17, 1793. Bedford County lies on the trail to KY from Halifax County VA. Do you know of any other children that John Orrell the elder might have had besides Joseph, Frances and Elizabeth? I would also be interested in any info that you may share.
