ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

The effort to preserve

Wolfe County’s genealogy and local history

began in 1952 when the Wolfe County Woman’s Club recognized that the County’s historical significance,

as reflected in its past, was at great risk of being lost.

That concern continues today.

 

Special thanks are due to our Club President,

Ms. Maxine Shortridge Brewer,

for her support and encouragement, and to the

History Book Committee members

whose assistance and advice helped make Volumes II

and III a reality.

Dedication

 

 

This book is dedicated to those who remain determined

to preserve history.

Without their research and documentation,

our past would slowly fade from memory….
