Dave Rosenbaum: Quick review, Westward into Kentucky

Enjoyed Adair Countian Chester Raymond Young's book

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
Just read Westward Into Kentucky edited by Chester Raymond Young. Very familiar names were there when Columbia was formed: Walker, Caldwell, Haskins, Antle, Waggener, Conover, Burbridge, Montgomery and so many others. I had not read it before and enjoyed it very much. - Dave Rosenbaum

Thanks: Mr. Young was a hero for those of us who thought writing a book was about as significant an accomplishment as there could be. Before he edited "Westward Into Kentucky," and after, he would most often attend the Columbia Baptist Church when he was in town, and was always recognized from the pulpit and sometimes spoke himself. Thanks for the reminder. Don't know genealogy very well, and wonder if Chester Young would be a kinsman of another favorite author, Garnett Young, who wrote "The Briar Domain."- EW
