BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: Babb’s Rock is now available in Print!

Babb Unabridged Vol 1-Babbs Rock (Cover)I am thrilled to announce that my first book is finally available in print. Babb’s Rock, is the first volume of a new series that will unfold to include Babb lineages from around the world. I’ve title the series Babb Unabridged, because I plan to leave nothing out. Please note that this is NOT simply the next edition of Jean A Sargent’s Babb Families of America, but a whole new approach to finding our roots. I want to enable everyone to have all the information I have at my disposal, so you can do your own research without having me as a bottleneck. I have some great surprises in store for future volumes, but today, we celebrate Babb’s Rock!

Babb’s Rock isn’t just a place. It represents the most storied Babb in history. The Rock of the Babb Family in America is none other than the legendary Sheriff of the Isles of Shoals, Phillip Babb. He was as tough as the granite that bears his name.

In the most comprehensive look ever into his life, get to know all about him and the people that he called family. Find out what brought them to the Isles, who they were and where they came from. Marvel in the amazing lineage of Bathsheba Hussey, the Murder inquest that Robert Taprill served as a juror for and the story of George Walton and the Stone Throwing Devil.

In the first volume of this bold new series, I work to set the stage for the difficult work of finding where Phillip came from. Most of this work is being published for the very first time and represents a compilation of the work I’ve done over the past 14 years.

New volumes will follow as they are completed, to give the most complete picture ever of Babb Families from around the World.
