Corrections to William Bassett's History of Richmond 1884


A number of errors have been discovered in Bassetts invaluable tome of Richmond's past. We faced a quandary as to where to make a record of these misconceptions -- thus this particular blog.

I (Douglass) will begin with an error I discovered... George Cook was NOT the son of Deacon Nicholas Cook. He was the grandson. His Father was Caleb Cook son of Deacon Nicholas Cook.
