Item description for The Rockwells (Rockholds) of Fayette County, Pennsylvania by Dobson Sides Peggie...

This book is a straight-forward surname genealogy. It follows the family of Rockhould (immigrant ancestor, Robert, and his son, Thomas, both signed their name with the "u" in the name) to Fayette County, Pennsylvania, where one descendant changed his name from Rockhold to Rockwell. The name has been Rockwell ever since. Of course, there are other descendants that moved to various parts of the country that maintained the name of Rockhold. In addition, one of the descendants that migrated to Tennessee, had such a flourishing handwriting, that the tail of the "d" swept around and crossed the top bar of the letter. From that time the family was known as Rockholt (family tradition). Finally, one of the descendants that had about 90 slaves, and followed the Quaker teachings that slavery was inhuman, freed all of his slaves and gave them part of his plantation so that they would not be a burden to society. A large number of these freed slaves also adopted the name of Rockhold. This book only follows those that came through Fayette County, Pennsylvania. The family lines are included to the 10th generation, where possible. No living persons are included, because of security theft possibilities. Documentation was included with each name, because many family historians hate to flip back and forth from text to footnotes.
