We have an anecdotal statement that a monument inscribed "Margaret LINDSEY, wife of John SCOTT, and mother of Gerard BRANDON of Mississippi, by whom this stone was erected," was located in a graveyard in the front yard of "The Old Scott Place" on the Aberdeen and Rockfish R.

CAMPBELL    August 23, 2002
I am an archeologist researching the property history of Campbells Crossroads (located at the intersection of Chicken and Raeford-Vass Road, on Fort Bragg, east of Juniper Creek and west of Nicholson Creek, formerly of the Quewhiffle township) in conjunction with archeological research at the crossroads site.

The USA obtained the 825 acre tract in 1921 by court settlement, from the Daniel CAMPBELL Estate (Alberta, Malcolm, Rowena, William, and Scott CAMPBELL) (Hoke County Deed Book 29:232-233). The Estate obtained the property in 1898 (Cumberland County Deed Book 105:592-593). Daniel Campbell appears to have obtained the property in 1898 from Sarah ACL CAMPBELL (Cumberland County Deed Book 105:589-591).

Sarah ACL obtained what may be the property in 1885 from Daniel Campbell (Deed Book 77:344). In 1872 Daniel Campbell obtained property from Colin M., Peter, and John Campbell (Deed Book 60:40). Daniel also obtained property from Neill Monroe in 1858 (Deed Book 54:164), but I am not sure if this property is related. Daniel, John, Colin, and Peter Campbell are all listed on a headstone at the Campbell cemetery near the site.

In 1854, Colin M., Peter, and John Campbell obtained property that appears to contain the 825 acre tract, from the division of the Malcolm Campbell estate (Deed Book 51:564).

Malcolm Campbell may have obtained the property in 1822 from Alexander Graham (Deed Book 34:369), in 1806 from John Gilchrist and ??? (Deed Book 22:125), or in 1804-1805 from Colin MacPherson (Deed Book 22:46; 20:238).

Because I am unsure which tracts obtained by Malcolm Campbell contain the 825 acre tract, I cannot trace the property further.

I have performed no genealogical research on the Daniel Campbell family. What is the relationship of Sarah ACL Campbell to the family?

Any information on the family history of this branch of the Campbell family would be greatly appreciated, and I will be happy to share any information obtained during this research. Bruce Idol, TRC Garrow Associates

THOMPSON / WOODELL / RANSOM    August 18, 2002
I'm new to genealogy and have taken on the task of finding my husband's ancestors. His grandmother was Magoline Woodell THOMPSON, and from what I know so far, her family was in Scotland County (East Laurinburg) in 1920. However, I cannot find this family (in whole) on the 1910 census for Scotland County. They were cotton mill employees, and my father in law has suggested I try Hoke and Richmond counties. Magoline's father was Lonnie Fuller WOODELL, born around 1890 in what I believe to be Richmond County. He was married to Nancy RANSOM, born around 1882. Lonnie's mother's name was Maggie but I don't know his father's name or Maggie's maiden name. If you have any information about the Woodell family in Hoke County or any suggestions I'd appreciate the advice. Thank you, Heidi Thompson

ELLIS    August 06, 2002
I am trying to find out information about my grandfather, John (Buddy) ELLIS. He settled in the Bowmore/Raeford section and operated a store and ELLIS Filling Station with his wife, my grandmother, Julia Hester (Graham) Ellis. Would you be aware of how I can find out information about his business, the filling station for example which I believe might have been rare in his day. Also about the ELLIS family. I know my grands had two children: John (Bill) and Frank. My folks passed away when I was a child and I did not get to learn the history of our family to now share with my own children. I believe my grandparents passed away in the mid to late 1950's. Any guidance you might offer would be appreciated, e.g. websites, reliable geneology software, etc. Thank you, Deborah Ellis Nathan

Hi, Does anyone know what road in Hoke County would have been known as the old "Fayetteville Road". I am trying to locate the site of the home of Dr. Angus Duart McLEAN and the old WILKES cemetery which was "on the west side of the Fayetteville Road and in front of the late residence of Dr. A. D. McLEAN". I believe both were located in the northern part of Robeson County and perhaps in the area that is now Hoke County. This cemetery is mentioned in a 1908 land deed, Mary L. Wilkes to William A. Wilkes. (William is the son of Mary Lucinda Wilkes and he is my great grandfather.) My mother's notes say the cemetery is now plowed over and I am trying to located the site. I have information that Dr. McLean lived near Floral College, Robeson County. Thanks! Mary Raye Casper   May 24, 2002

I am trying to do a genealogical search of my family tree. My name is Mike Turner. My mother is the former Jeanie SANDERSON. Her father, John Archie SANDERSON who died in 1945 is buried there along with her grandparents Walter Curtis SANDERSON and Susan THOMPSON SANDERSON. We have always heard that we may be of Indian ancestry but we are not sure what kind. We do not get much help from our relatives there in Hoke County with information concerning this subject. If you could give me a complete listing of everyone buried in this cemetary I would appreciate it. I feel pretty certain that we are not Lumbee Indians because I know several that live here in Greensboro, including Ruth and Lonnie Revels and their son William. We do not have any of their traits. I think that we could possibly be Coharie because I read on their website that some of them settled around Antioch. Most of my relatives live down Highway 211 about four miles out of Raeford and two miles before you get to Antioch Presbyterian Church. If you know any Sanderson's that live in and around Raeford would you have them e-mail me. Sincerely, Oliver Michael Turner.   May 06, 2002

I am looking for my Grandfather, his name as far as we can tell is Dee AMMONS. In our searching we have not been able to actually find him. His death certificate was not registered by Mr. Lentz, or it is lost. His father J.F.( James Franklin) AMMONS is buried at Old Shiloh Cemetery. So is my Granddad(there is no marker, we would like to put one on his grave) and his second wife Lillie BROWN, she was of the Neil BROWN family of Five Points. James Franklin and Eliza Ivey AMMONS were farmers in the Blue Springs Community. In the 1920 census it showed J.F., Eliza, and a Thomas in Blue Springs Community. We were young folks when he died, somewhere around 1956-1961, Mr. Haywood presided at the funeral. The obit says he was a paint contracter and for many years a Hoke County jailor. We are trying to fill in some blanks in our family tree. Any help will be appreciated.Thanks! Robert L. Brown Jr., 102 Charles Street, Beaufort, NC 28516   April 04, 2002
