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
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.
