As the title implies, emphasis is on those early descendants of John Holbrook and his two wives, one of whom was Mary Cooksey, who remained “on the Clinch” in Southwest Virginia, although a limited amount of information is included on those children of John who moved on to Kentucky.

With respect to Mr. Wesley Lawson’s review: Our apologies for not including you in our book. We make no claim that all Holbrook descendants living in 2005 are included. That would be an impossible goal to achieve, requiring many volumes. It is a book of genealogy with emphasis on Holbrook history, not a listing of all living souls.

This Book is a book of information of incorrect and out-dated information that says that was updated thru 2005. As stopped in 2005, at that time the information in some places was out of date and verified in one instance atleast 28 years, another at 27 years, 26 years, 25 years, 23 years, 22 years, 21 years, 20 years.. and yes there are plenty more. Putting the book 33 years out of date today, in 2 days of attempting to verify some information. Leaving TWO Generations out is a serious oversight. My Suggestion is simply - Don't make my mistake, don't waste your money. There are better ways to get good credible information. Wesley Lawson firstname.lastname@example.org
