Don,

I have a copy of the reprint of "The Battle Book" The Paragon Press, 1930. Is this the book you want? Or, are you interested in the newer one?

If you are interested in the 1930 one (like I have), you can purchase a reprint through Elder's Bookstore, 2115 Elliston Place, Nashville, TN 37203. That's where I got mine.

Dear Don - I read on the Battle message boards that you have information on the Battle family ...Orren Datus Battle (m.sarah coleman fort) and Jethro Battle ( m. martha lane) were my great - great - great grandfathers, and i would greatly appreciate any information you could add ... or suggestions of where I might look for more information on their ancestry.
My ancestors from Orren Datus are through his daughter, Martha Liggin Battle (m. Frances Gordon hopkins), and then through her son, Dr. Thomas Benjamin Hopkins (m. Sarah Ann Eliza Kennedy) then to my grandmother, Anna Keener Hopkins. Ihope to hear from you! catherine

Have in my possesion the family bible of Julius Datus Battle from 1853. This bible has many birth, death, and marriage records of the Orren Datus Battle family tree. Also have an original Battle Book from 1930. Also some photos and some land deeds and things. Julius Orren Battle, was my great grandfather. I might be able to help someone needing information.
