I'd be interested in your book and in your bibliography. Would also be happy to pay postage or some sort of fee if you could provide it via email. I'm very glad you're interested in doing hard research and encouraging others to do the same. It's especially exciting to me to hear that you're working on anecdotal information.
Some of my Totman third and fourth cousins told me about a book called "Three Farms," which includes a long section on a Totman relative who was still farming his family's land in Colrain, Massachusetts. What fascinated me the most was the opening of the first chapter, which included some remembrances of his Civil War veteran grandfather, Joshua Totman (perhaps one of or a son of one of the 9 you have). It was truly thrilling to read some of the words spoken by an ancestor -- to get a picture of him, so to speak.
I found the book in an out-of-print search on Amazon.com, I believe. Let me know if you'd like that information.
