Johnston then retraces the family backward in time. Succeeding chapters cover the Ellett lines, and then the family of Joseph William Pinder (1828-1897) by his two marriages. Again, his goal was to track all lines as far back in America as possible. The impetus for this volume was the original family papers that were handed down to him by his mother, and research by his aunt, Belle Pinder Rand. There are also bibliographies, guides to library and archival holdings, research aids, and histories of the Bahama Islands, Bermuda, and Barbados, as well as information on the Bahamas DNA Project.

Johnston's report explores records illuminating the lives and families of each man, one John Pope (1749-1802) who likely was born in Westmoreland previous hitCounty next hit, Virginia, and lived in Prince William previous hitCounty next hit, Virginia, and later in Wilkes previous hitCounty next hit, Georgia, where he died; the other, Colonel John Pope (ca. 1754-1795), who was born in Louisa previous hitCounty next hit, Virginia, and lived in Amherst previous hitCounty next hit, Virginia, and died in Augusta, Georgia.
