"Old Homes and Ancestors: a story of our Cavaliers and Pioneers and their descendants", 1943, by Harriet Bush Hunt (1881-1954).

This is the family history of the Bush, Meador, Jones, and Beall families (among others) on my mother's side, primarily in the states of Georgia and Alabama.

This book was never formally published; I have a xerographic copy. There have been many manual edits and additions to it since it was originally copied but prior to my acquisition.

I apologize in advance for readability, especially for the various handwritten annotations that were made and then became part of the xerographed copy.

As of 10 July 2020, all sections have been uploaded.

I have added my own annotations to the PDF files to provide the WikiTree profile ID for some, but by no means all, of the persons mentioned in this book. I am choosing not to include the various pedigree charts that were added to the book until I can verify that all of the information contained therein does not include living people whose privacy I want to protect.

Note that the information contained in this work has not been fully verified. I know that in some sections, the author used sources (example: F.M.M Beall's history of the Beall surname) that have proven unreliable. There are other aspects of the work that are more useful, including some first- and second-hand narratives of people and places.

Primary surnames in this book: Aderhold, Bartlett, Beall/Bell, Boyd, Braithwaite, Bush, Davidson, Freeman, Hargrove, Hastings, Hollinshead/Hollingshead, Hunt, Jones, King, Magruder, McGarity, Meador/Meadors, Peyton, Rankin, Roane, Whiting, Yancey

Secondary surnames that are mentioned: Batte, Blount, Bowles, Candler, Cleveland, Cobb, Coombes, Daniel, Easley, Green/Greene, Headen, Heavner/Havner, Holland, Jelks, Jenkins, Moore, Neal, Norris, Pelham, Ragan, Rudisill, Scarborough, Sharley, Sorrels, Sugan/Shugan, Thomas, Wellborn, Williams, Woodson

At the end of several sections, there may be a reference to the "Brooke" lineage. Included in the hardcopy was a complete Xerox copy of The Brooke Family of Whitchurch, Hampshire, England by Thomas Willing Balch (1899).
