A 'must see' for all Borton researchers

Whilst trawling the web I found scanned images of 'History of the Borton and Mason families in Europe and America (c1908)' by Freeman Clark Mason 1851-1926 here:-

Sadly the .PDF version is only of scanned page images and the text version contains a lot of OCR errors. I am considering re-OCR'ing it (it's out of copyright) and making a 'proper' electronic copy of it. Anyone interested ?

There is also mention of the John Borton/Ann Kinton Bortons in another book on the Haines family:

There is a copy of Joseph Besse's 'Sufferings', that I've seen mentioned on this board, here:

Peter, thanks for the info. This will be a great help for me as I continue my hunt for family history.
