In Celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Raising of the Pigeon Roost Monument, The Preservation Alliance, Inc. proudly announces the reprinting  of The Collings, Richeys  and The Pigeon Roost Massacre.
 
The Pigeon Roost Monument  was raised on October 27, 1903 to commemorate  the lives of the settlers who were massacred  by Shawnee Indians  on September 3, 1812.  Over 30,000 names of the descendents  of the settlement  patriarch, William Elston  Collings, can be traced in The Collings, Richeys  and the Pigeon Roost  Massacre.
 
The book was originally  published in 1980.  The compiling of thousands of pages of genealogical  research  was done by Kenneth and Rebecca Scott, Connie Hackman, and Leona Lawson.
 
This new edition will be printed true to the original.  The size is approximately  6 x 9 inches and because of the wealth of information contained within, measures  3 inches thick.  The pages are bound together with a hard brown leather grained cover.  A gold foil stamp appears  on the cover and the spine. The book is Smyth-sewn to insure its stability.
 
Books can be shipped to the purchaser  or can be picked up at the museum.  The books have arrived and are available for pick-up.  A limited amount of extra copies were printed and they are going fast. If you want a copy, act now!
