Descendants of Saylor Hill
Compiled by Stewart R. Saylor

ISBN: 978-0-9886458-0-6


The first project of the Society uses Print-On-Demand (POD) technology with the associated cost and distribution advantages.

This book builds on the research compiled by Dr. E.C. Saylor and preserved at the Society. The publication details nine generations of the Seiler/Sayler/Saylor family that settled on Saylor Hill overlooking Meyersdale, Somerset County, PA, during the late 1700s.

The book includes 1,166 pages with extensive source references and an every-name index.

Copies will be available at the Society; but, using the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) above you can order your copy online at your favorite book store.

Cost is $53, including sales tax, if picked up at the Society.

To date it appears that all of the books sold online have been sold directly through Amazon. While other sellers are listed on the Amazon site, paying more than the $50 list price is not recommended.

Positive results of the release of the Descendants of Saylor Hill include a work party organized by Don Watson at the Saylor Hill graveyard. This was my the first face-to-face meeting with cousins Don Watson and Ward Beals. Don recalled playing on Saylor Hill during his youth. We hope to make the work party an annual event.
