Descendants’ Day


Descendants’ Day.  The result of 40 years of research by local resident Carolyn E. Cooper, this book traces the history of the central part of Kent County from the original land grant in 1658 to today.  Worton Manor, as it was known then, would become the site of many farms and small towns, including Hanesville, Butlertown, Melitota, and Smithville.  It also was the site of the beginning of Methodism in Kent County.  The 551-page book includes an extensive index tracing scores of families who settled this part of Kent County.  Signed by the author, $54.00, plus $5.00 book-rate shipping.
