Left in green binding: a reprint volume of History of the Chenoweth Family by Cora Chenoweth Hiatt in 1925
Middle in blue binding: The Chenoweth Family In America, 1994, by Richard Harris
Right in brown binding: An orginal copy of History of the Chenoweth Family by Cora Hyatt from 1925
The green reprint book is not presently available. The reunion committee was in negotiations to purchase the inventory from the publisher when the publisher went out of business. No suitable agreement could be reached.
Cora Hiatt invited all family members that she knew to send information about the family tree. She was not able to physically verify all the details and sources however, and inevitable errors were made. Richard Harris' book picks up with Hiatt's book, correcting errors and uniting all branches of the family tree.
