As this line of Wentworths are my Ancestors, I found the book to be most informative!
I knew of it first when my first cousin, Bill Allen, Jr., showed me the original three volumes of it he had
inherited from his grandfather, George William Allen, who was the son of Edwina Maud Richardson. She was the daughter of Hannah Jordan Crockett, whose mother was Sarah Bartlett Wentworth.
I am trying to buy at least Volume II, which contains most of the Ancestors of whom I know through verbally handed-down family stories, but so far the only copies I can find to purchase online are damaged and say some whole pages are actually missing.
Can this book be ordered in very good, valid shape online through this site, per chance?
It is a very informative and factual book - any dates I have tried to double-check with primary documents within our family, have been found to be accurate, names, dates, places, etc.
I would highly recommend that any family members researching our Ancestors read this quality book!
