Paul Goodridge, a retired great-grandfather, has completed his book “William Brockman Bankhead”: a gripping and potent historical account of the life and story of the title’s namesake and his family.

When asked to describe the book, Goodridge said, “William Brockman Bankhead is a non-fiction story that involves numerous events of American history shared by this family. The story documents a volatile political environment found in Scotland, his ancestral home. It traces his ancestor’s immigration to the colonies, their migration to South Carolina and later movement to Northwest Alabama. The story documents family participation in each American war from the Revolution to World War I. It includes family connections to Mormon migration from a Mississippi location to a first settlement in Utah. The Bankheads were a prominent political family with many accomplishments during their fifty nine consecutive years of service in the US Congress. Here, we find the stories of how three Bankheads, a father and two sons, helped shape American history, often less recognized.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Paul Goodridge’s poignant tale is both engrossing and educational. The history of the Bankhead family that Goodridge provides is fascinating and of great significance in the making of our country.

The Bankhead family is one of the most interesting and influential families in American history. William Brockman Bankhead’s heritage was traced to sixteen family branches established by each of his individual great great-grandparents. Family connections to numerous events in American history and relationships to prominent individuals challenge the imagination. The family branches first had close connections to monarchs of England and Scotland. Here, families lost sizeable estates during England’s Civil Wars and forced from their homes by Oliver Cromwell. Prominent colonial connections within the family also include marriages to relatives of Presidents Madison and Jefferson.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “William Brockman Bankhead” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
