"The Verity Family of Long Island, New York" First Edition was in 1976 with a red cover.The Second Edition was published 2000 with white cover and black lettering. Since you mention year 2000 I think you saw the last publication. You husband's ancestor Richard Verity b 9-22-1803 was sister of my great, great grandmother Arabella who according to the 2000 book was born 3-31-1803.Hardly likely but not impossible if his birthwas VERY premature(?). Author does state some some birth dates are uncertain. Arabella married Obediah Verity, a distant cousin to her therefore she had same surname.Let me know if I can help you in any way.Joan .
