I am interested in learning more about one of my grandmothers, Asenath CARTER. She is buried at Cross Creek Cemetery in Fayetteville with the family of her daughter, Ruby Mears Carver. The Certificate of Death for Asenath Carter says that when upon her death on March 7, 1940 she was 92 years old. It shows Lunday Carter born in Sampson Co., NC to have been her father and Jane Lewis born in Robeson Co., NC to have been her mother. Asenath was the widow of John MEARS. None of Asenath's living great grandchildren recall ever hearing where their grandfather was buried. I would appreciate any information you could share with me about this line of family.

Does anyone know whether or not the Cumberland County Courthouse kept a yearly drawing of the property diagrams in their record books. Some counties kept not only the deeds recorded but also had an "index" that laid out the land in the county.

I am searching for information on Murdoch McLEAN, born either in 1792 or 1793 in Cumberland County (in the portion that is now Harnett County).

I know that my great-great grandfather was a Malcom McLean born in 1839, thanks to a family bible. I am assuming Murdoch McLEAN is his father, by way of the 1850 Cumberland County census. Any information anyone has on Murdoch, to confirm his relationship with my great-great grandfather Malcom, and to trace this line back to Scotland, would be much appreciated.

About 1920 or so a man named J. McNeill Johnson of Aberdeen, North Carolina published or compiled a manuscript on the Graham family of North Carolina. It is referred to on page 242 of "Correspondence and Documents of Scottish Highland Families of North Carolina." It is also mentioned in a 1961 research summary done by Ruth Graham Barnes who was also looking at the Graham family.

I am trying to locate this manuscript as it relates to the Graham family of Cumberland and Richmond counties (plus others) in North Carolina. Has anyone ever heard of this publication? Can you suggest some way to locate a copy? The Graham family is connected to the McNeill, Smith, Purcell and McKay families of Cumberland (and later Robeson) County. Any help you can provide will be appreciated. Thank you. Please contact: Doug Purcell Posted Aug. 18, 1999

I have the need of being pointed in the proper direction in looking for the family of Dugald Campbell of Saddell, Kintyre, Scotland whose eldest daughter Ann married Hector McNeill of Losset in 1693 and begat one Dugald McNeill, an emigre' to NC aboard the Thistle in 1739. Dugald as you might know met an unfortunate and early end and died with no heirs. Judge Stewart in ACP relates that Archibald McNeill's mother and Ann Campbell McNeill were sisters thus making Archie a cousin of Dugald.

I have been having all sorts of trouble trying to find out just who Archibald's parents were. Some say Lauchlin McNeill and Margaret Johnstone, some say Daniel McNeill of Taynish but they cannot be the parents if his mother was a Campbell!

The information on Dugald Campbell's family with spouses and siblings would be most beneficial. Even if you do not have the answers perhaps you could point me in the right direction. Thank you,

Searching for any Cumberland Co records pertaining to Elijah BUTLER, wifeLincey, and/or Elijah's daughter, Mary Amanda HENDERSON, widow with 4 children. They are listed in the 1870 Cumberland Census in 71st District. They were all in Duplin Co in 1860, but I believe moved to Cumberland maybe as early as 1862 or 1863 [Mary Amanda's husband Jesse R. died in VA in March 1863]. Are there any Cumberland records of soldiers' wives/widows assistance? Have minutes of Cumberland Court of P& QS been abstracted/indexed for the 1860-70 period? Believe Elijah/Lincey died in Cumberland prior to 1880 but have no record. Mary Amanda and at least 2 of her children had moved to Durham by then. Any communication on these subjects will be appreciated.

Can someone lookup an obituary for me in Fayetteville, Cumberland County for OSKAR ERIKSSON b; June 11, 1910 Died; May 1980

The mystery deepens as I do more genealogical research on kindred from Indiana. For me my family roots start in England, but several generation settled in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, with distant cousins in Sweden and Norway. What really is strange that a relative married an Erickson from Sweden and another kindred on the maternal side of my family, married yet another, but different Erickson (so I believe) from Norway. Hoping there is a pretty enlightening published announcement, so that it gives the whereabouts of any elusive cousins that have remained unknown till now.

My forte is assisting people locate adoption records or birthparents, the only charge out of pocket expenses. Incidently, if anyone needs assistance in Monroe County, Indiana. You have my name and EMail?

Would appreciate any assistance identifying the abovementioned information and any relevant records. Will of course pay for photocopying, etc.,

I'm looking for a connection which had been very illusive for me. I pick up my known Hewitt in Marion County, SC in the 1850 census. It stated that my known Thomas N. Hewitt was born about 1806 in North Carolina. I have searched several adjacent NC counties to no avail. The 1800 NC census stated that a Thomas Hewett, with three sons, was in Cumberland County and it may be that this Thomas Hewett could be the father of my Thomas Hewitt. Let's hope.

Am interested to see if anyone can help me find the parents of both John PATTERSON and Margaret BLACK. First, John Patterson was born 3-18-1766, not sure where. Family tradition unanimously states he was Scotch-Irish. Margaret Black was born circa 1766/67, most likely in SC, but not sure. Margaret had a sister named Susannah Black, who married a KINCAID. John Patterson married Margaret Black in 1788 in Pendleton District, SC. Their first child was Joseph Patterson born 1789. One researcher recently told me she had heard that John PATTERSON's parents (whoever they were) were from Cumberland County, NC, where Fort Bragg currently sits. Any help regarding the parents of either John Patterson or Margaret Black would be forever greatly appreciated. Some allied families that their children married into were DENTONS, CHASTAIN, WILSON, DUNKIN, PULASKY, HICKS, KINCAID. Thanks. Wes Patterson   Posted: July 13th, 1999

I am seeking information on the ancestors of James Duncan Johnson and Sarah Jane McNeill who were married about 1856, Family tradition says that James Duncan's father was Daniel Johnson who married three times: first to a McNeill, second to a McDougald, and third to Sallie McBride. Daniel was supposedly a grandson of Peter Johnson who migrated from Kintyre Scotland to North Carolina about 1760 and settled about 5 miles from the present town of Raeford on the North side of Rockfish Creek. Sarah Jane McNeill Johnson was the oldest daughter of John McNeill (Squire Jack) and Patsey Oates McNeill. John McNeill father was Neil McNeill (Big Neill) who was married to Polly Matthew's (Margaret?) daughter of Revolutionary Co. Thomas Matthews of Cranes Creek. Neill McNeill's father, Daniel McNeill came to North Carolina about 1759 and settled about 12 miles up the Cape Fear River from Campbellton (Fayettville) at a settlement with his brother, Neill, who had come over some years earlier. Daniel supposedly remained there for a year, then moved up lower Little River some 30 miles and acquired lands in peninsula between James Creek and Little River. Daniel McNeill was married to Sarah McKay, the daughter of Alexander McKay. Their sons were Neill, John and Alexander. I am a ggrand of James Duncan Johnson and Sarah Jane McNeill. My grandfather, Henry Thomas Johnson moved to South Carolina in the late 1880s. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who knows of this family. I plan to be in the Fayettville area later and would like to know more before I come. Thanks, Ruth J. Edens   Posted: July 13th, 1999

We live in SC and I wouldn't mind making a trip up there to do research but hate to start out blind and waste time in the wrong place. Should I start out in this county or somewhere else? Where should I look in this county? Should I go where the state records are kept? I really don't know much about NC so welcome any advice. Thank you. Reply to Cathy B.

Malcom BLACK married Jannet McNEILL in 1849 in Cumberland Co. Was he the son of Archibald/Christian (Brodie) BLACK who married 1820 in N Knapdale Scotland? A Malcom BLACK son of Archibald/Christian BLACK was christened 18 Aug 1826 in Jura Scotland. Same one? Does anyone know? Will exchange info.

Interested in the ancestry of Hugh Ochiltree (1745-1807). Private in the NC militia. Born and died in Cumberland County. I am related, and have established lineage downward, but would like info linking his past.
