Book on Sollenbergers of Cumberland Co., PA

I've just had the good fortune of acquiring a book entitled "The Ancestry of My Children" by Lawrence Randall Sollenberger. In trying to find out what I could about him, I've found that he was born 1867, died 1958, and is buried in the Big Spring Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Newville, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. There's a website for this cemetery which can be found at:

My interest is on the Randalls and Mr. Sollenberger has provided a genealogy on that line as well as Dunlap, Little, Mahon, McCandlish, McCord, Morrow, Piper, Scott, Talbot and Sollenberger. Many of the Randalls are also buried in the above cemetery. I haven't checked the cemetery for the other surnames mentioned.

I would be interested in knowing how many of these books were printed and when and by whom. None of this information is in the book. If anyone has that information, please e-mail me - halnbillie@aol.com. Books such as this are valuable for those of us doing genealogy and, as I said, I feel fortunate to have acquired this copy. I'll gladly do look-ups in it if anyone needs something checked.
