The Family of Wayne

By Audra (Rickey) Wayne


This book, written in 1970 and revised in 1980, is a biographical, historical and genealogical account of six generations of the McELWAIN - WAYNE family, as well as many associated families, including those of PROPST and BARNHOUSE.

The material included in this book represents more than a quarter century of time, miles of travel and many hours of meticulous work. That it has been a hobby and a labor of love for one person detracts not at all from its interest and value to the descendants of its subjects, nor to all who will appreciate history in the future.

Naturally, such a record cannot be complete. In spite of long and often disappointing search, many of the wanted details are not available.

To make this Family History as easy as possible to understand, each family is grouped together when possible.
