Overview

A Genealogical Memoir of the Lo-Lathrop Family in this Country, Embracing the Descendants, as Far as Known

By Rev. E.B. Huntington



The Rev. Mr. Huntington's Genealogy of the Lothrop-Lathrop Family was substantially ready for the press in 1872-1878, the material having been collected long before. The panic of 1878 and his untimely death in 1877 caused delays in the publicatìon. The manuscript needed revision, there were corrections and additions to be made. Had the author lived, it is hardly possible there should nave been no mistakes in such a work, and with him passed away all knowledge of many of the references and authorities which he used, and some of the errors were thus placed beyond correction.



In August, 1888, a friend, though overladen with business cares, kindly offered to see the work through the press, but without being able to give it any thorongh editorial revision. Much new material has been added, a voluminous correspondence has been entered into, many corrections, made necessary by an illegible manuscript and other causes, have been made, and the publicatìon has thus been unavoidably delayed until now.



Many acknowledgments should be made for kindly aid given by those who were interested in the work. To name them all would be impossible, to omit any would be invidious, and only the general thanks of a grateful heart can now be tendered.

Windham Press is committed to bringing the lost cultural heritage of ages past into the 21st century through high-quality reproductions of original, classic printed works at affordable prices.



This book has been carefully crafted to utilize the original images of antique books rather than error-prone OCR text. This also preserves the work of the original typesetters of these classics, unknown craftsmen who laid out the text, often by hand, of each and every page you will read. Their subtle art involving judgment and interaction with the text is in many ways superior and more human than the mechanical methods utilized today, and gave each book a unique, hand-crafted feel in its text that connected the reader organically to the art of bindery and book-making.



We think these benefits are worth the occasional imperfection resulting from the age of these books at the time of scanning, and their vintage feel provides a connection to the past that goes beyond the mere words of the text.
