Overview
Excerpt from A History of the Juniata Valley and Its People, Vol. 1
The present work, "A History of the Juniata Valley and Its People," presents in the aggregate an amount and variety of genealogical and personal information and portraiture unequalled by any kindred publication. No similar work has ever before been presented, and it contains a great amount of ancestral history never before printed. The object, clearly defined and well digested, is threefold:
First. To present in concise form an outline history of the Juniata Valley.
Second. To preserve a record of its prominent present-day people.
Third. To present through personal sketches the relation of its prominent families of all times to the growth, singular prosperity and widespread influence of the Juniata Valley, Pennsylvania.
Unique in conception and treatment, this work constitutes one of the most original and permanently valuable contributions ever made to the social history of an American community. In it arc arrayed in a lucid and dignified manner all the important facts regarding the ancestry, personal careers and matrimonial alliances of those who, in each succeeding generation, have been accorded leading positions in social, professional and business life. It is not based upon, neither docs it minister to, aristocratic prejudice* and assumptions. On the contrary, its fundamental ideas are thoroughly American and democratic. The work everywhere conveys the lesson that distinction has been gained only by honorable public service, or by usefulness in private station, and that the development and prosperity of the region of which it treats have been dependent upon the character of its citizens, and in the stimulus which they have given to commerce, to industry. to the arts and sciences, to education and religion-to all that is comprised in the highest civilization of the present day-through a continual progressive development.
The inspiration underlying the present work is a fervent appreciation of the truth so well expressed by Sir Walter Scott, that "there is no heroic poem in the world but is at the bottom the life of a man."
