"The Courtright (Kortright) Family," subtitled "Descendants of Bastian Van Kortryk, a Native of Belgium Who Emigrated to Holland About 1615" is a book by John Howard Abbott published on demand by University Microfilms, University Microfilms Limited, High Wycomb, England in 1922. The copy that I have, which actually belongs to Alan Courtright is an authorized facsimile produced in 1970.
The book was designed to account the genealogy of Benjamin Courtright (presumably an ancestor of the author) via his sons Cornelius, Henry, and John (none of whom I have family tree snapshots available yet so their relationship to me and my lineage is therefor undetermined), who came from Minisink district in Northampton County soon after the Revolution and settled in Plains, Lucerne County, Pennsylvania, in the Wyoming Valley.
I am currently researching the copyright information to obtain permission to publish excerpts on this web site. In the meantime, I will present for you the chapter entitled "The Family Name" which seems generic enough and appropriate reading for Courtright kin.
Excerpts reprinted with permission pending.
