I got this interesting letter and wanted to share it with you all if anyone might be interested.


Dear Mrs Wardlaw 

I hope you are well? I wanted to write to see if any of your members might be  interested in a portrait I have for sale relating to the Wardlaws of Fife. 

Look forward to hearing from you if any interest. The painting is in London.

Best, Rohan McCulloch


Dear Diane,
Thanks for your reply and you are quite right re David being her husband! 
I'm asking £25,000 for the portrait but happy to discuss if any interest. Please do pass onto any members of the society and happy for you to use the image just for the family tree.

Very best
Rohan McCulloch

The pioneers and early settlers of Tennessee were a hardy, resolute, courageous people, who ventured into the wilderness to make their homes, improve their fortunes,to enjoy liberty, and have the privileges of self-government that they did not have in the older colonies." So begins the first chapter of Lauderdale County from Earliest Times, primarily an oral history as retold by the descendants of these very pioneers the book leads the reader through "an Intimate and Informal Account of the Towns and Communities, Its Families and Famous Individuals".
Original illustrations, images and maps help lay the groundwork for a trip back in time, bringing the places, the people and their times in to the bright focus of the present.
"The" book for researching Lauderdale County, Tennessee families. Much of this is oral history, only some records cited, so you'll want to confirm the information with further research. Nonetheless a great place to start. - Review
Condition is "Very Good".  Great Condition, minimal  age / shelf / storage wear. Very light foxing inside front cover, nominal order. Otherwise tightly bound, crisp, clean, and clear text, illustrations and images make this is a terrific original volume. This is a very scarce title, from the only printing in 1957, these do not come along very often, especially in this condition!
A book that does not look new and has been read but is in excellent condition. No obvious damage to the cover, with the dust jacket (if applicable) included for hard covers. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, and no underlining/highlighting of text or writing in the margins. May be very minimal identifying marks on the inside cover. Very minimal wear and tear.

Trotter House - Brownsburg, Virginia

This house has now been sold and I've been in contact with the new owners who are very interested in the Wardlaw history of the house!



Our Wardlaw friend, Amy Bullard, found this on Zillow and shot it over to me to share with you! This is one of the original houses that the Wardlaws built when they first settled in Brownsburg. See the Zillow page here:




This is the page from my book "Wardlaw Chronicle" about the Trotter House in Brownsburg.
