The flyleaf on the book states:
A native of Isle of Wight County, Helen King was born and still lives within sight of the bank of the Pagan River.
For many years a teacher and librarian, in 1983 Helen King published "Historic Isle of Wight", a small volume of pictures and brief histories (accompanied by a detailed map) of every pre-Civil War building still standing in the county. With "Historical Notes on Isle of Wight County",Mrs. King has produced a really complete record of its long history and development.
According to Mrs. King, "there was no attempt to include genealogical material on the families of the county. However, there are hundreds of names listed, including slaves, freed before the Civil War, Confederate soldiers, justices of the peace, sheriffs, supervisors, superintendents, and trustees of churches. Also there are short biographical sketches of a few notable citizens of the county."
I do own both of the above mentioned books.
The King family names mentioned are:
Zada and Marietta
Hope this answers what you wanted to know.
