Book Of The Month


Annals of our Forebearers: An account of a Scots-Irish Family in Colonial Virginia and North Carolina
by David C. Joyce
On November 6, 1777, Alexander Joyce, a Scots-Irish pioneer, writes to his children as he nears his death. By now, he is living in Guilford County, North Carolina, and realizes that his family knows little about his childhood in Ireland. From his immigration to Cub Creek in colonial Virginia because of political and religious persecution to his achievements in the New World, he has much to tell. And through the accounts of this particular Joyce family, one gains insight into life in eighteenth-century Virginia, North Carolina, and County Down, Ireland.

David's book is available on Amazon: Annals of our Forebearers: An account of a Scots-Irish Family in Colonial Virginia and North Carolina
