Whew, has Steve been a busy boy! |
Ever since I spent time learning a great deal more about the Upper Paxtang Eyman neighborhood in 1775 and produced maps and descriptions, I've wanted to know more about Rockingham Eymans. There was a great deal of interest to me to stumble over in looking at early deeds -- the fact that Christian and Susannah of Conestoga bought land there.. the links with not only Shanks and Brennemans, but Boones and Lincolns. The excitement of finding a beautifully built old German two-story log house in which they may have lived was thrilling -- check out Bater House! And I was very surprised at how much of everything still exists.
I've substantially redone the website from "Virginia" on through. I've tried to do more with images to give Rockingham visitors a sense of being there, and knowing where things are. There's lots of embedded information though, and I hope it's not overwhelming. I hope too that my code isn't too full of errors, and would very much appreciate any trouble reports.
