Staten Island and Its People was a multivolume work about Staten Island written by Leng & Davis. There were three volumes of biographical entries about Staten Island families. I am told anybody who could afford it, had their histories posted there. By the looks of it, this is most likely correct if the book was funded by subscriptions or the like. I was wondering if there are any descendents out there of any of the people profiled in the book. Anybody know? If your ancestors were in it, the work very likely was in your family's library.
Just wondering. I'd like to interview any of the descendents of those long-ago prominent Staten Islanders for something that I am working on.
