Looking for "Ursula Bish/Bysshe" by Alice Allgood, 2002

The late Alice Allgood wrote a book on her ancestor, Ursula Bish/Bysshe Thompson Mottrom Colclough, back in 2002. From the reviews when she first published it, it's clear, well-researched, with great sourcing.

I'm descended from her namesake granddaughter, Ursula Presley. The closest copy to me is in a library 300 miles away, but I don't want to borrow it; this book is on my perpetual wish list. Problem is, I can't find it anywhere - not on the usual suspect sites (alibris, amazon) and some more obscure places... if anyone sees this book, let me know where you find it. Hopefully it's relatively affordable! :)

For those who are descended from the Thompsons/Presleys/Ransdells and related families in Westmoreland and Fauquier Cos VA, Ursula Bysshe is a potential Colonial gateway ancestor for the Magna Carta and Charlemagne societies - not documented by and not yet seen on any list by either of these societies (her first husband, Richard Thompson, MAY be eligible for Ark and Dove; not proven). I have a generation 6/7 connectivity problem that keeps me firmly post-Revolution right now in terms of documentation on that line, but its on my DAR supplemental project list. Once I get past that hurdle, I can move on. This is just a public service announcement for those that may share these families. :)

Anyway, I figured I'd put that out there. If anyone sees a copy of this book floating around, let me know!
