Mercer Trails: Descendants of Christopher & Mary Simson Mercer and Wright Trails: Descendants of Edward & Katherine Covington Wright, by Frank Miller Richey.  Frank Richey seems to have coined a new phrase and applied it to Darlington County genealogy, “Another month, another book.”  Richey has a ravenous appetite for the genealogy of this region and has set a determined pace to document his wide family connections.  These two most recent publications repeat the format followed in previous efforts, an extensive listing (with several examples of primary document cited) of all the know descendants of the chosen progenitor.  Both the Mercer and Wright families touch numerous other Darlington families.  The Mercer publication also includes much information concerning descendants in the various states of the southeastern U.S.   Mercer Trails 300+ pages, spiral bound.  Wright Trails 131 pages, spiral bound. Price: $45.00 plus $4.00 shipping for
    first book and
$1.50 for each additional book.
