UPCHURCH HIGH SCHOOL    November 12, 2006
I was at an estate sale this weekend and found a copy of the 1954 "Eagle"
yearbook. It says that it is the first volume. Published by the senior
class of Upchurch High School Raeford, NC. I was wondering if you had any
information about this high school. I did a search of your web site but
came up with nothing about the school. One web site indicated that the
school was closed. Any information you might have would be appreciated.
Does you museum have a copy of this yearbook? Sincerely, David P. Noyes

McLEOD / McINNES / WILSON / CADDELL    August 27, 2006
I am looking for the family of Lauchlin McLEOD (b: 1812)-- who first married Mary Ann McLeod 
(daughter of Murdoch and Effie McINNES McLeod) in 1846 -- she died in childbirth in 1848 and in 1853, 
he remarried Effie WILSON. I descend from their son Norman C. McLEOD (the first police officer of 
Raeford in 1901) who married Alice WILSON. (All of what is now Hoke County) Lauchlin and family were 
all members of old Sandy Grove Presbyterian Church and in fact the church was built "above" his 
residence near Rockfish Creek. Does this family sound familiar? I descend from Daniel James McLeod 
who married Lucy CADDELL -- both my grandparents of Aberdeen, NC. I have reached a brick wall finding 
information particularly on Lauchlin and his family / ancestry. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 
Thanks. Best Regards, Daniel MacLeod

in N.C. is in Wake County, and it doesn't appear to be the correct one. Can you help? Thank you 
very much, Richard Lestage

CAMERON    April 18, 2006
My name is James Gray and I was adopted at birth by Mr. James F. and Thelma Gray of Tampa, Florida. 
My birth father was William L. CAMERON, son of William CAMERON and my great great grandfather was 
Samuel J. CAMERON; whom I am told was a Civil War Soldier, was captured and imprisoned at Point 
Lookout Maryland and eventually paroled and returned to North Carolina.
I am the half brother to Sonny (Claude) CAMERON, Mary Blue, Jane Williamson and a half sister in 
Virginia Beach. I have visited all but Mary Blue and attended a reunion at the Sandy Grove Church 
some years ago where I met the only living female member of the family; but I can't remember the name now. 
I an 67 years old now, am married to an Australian lady and now live in Australia. I am also the 
creator of the Australian Memorial Website, www.acwv.info, dedicated to all the American Civil War 
veterans buried in Australia; which has been archived by the National Library of Australia.
I am now trying to acquire information and a genealogical tree of my father William Lochlin CAMERON 
and his father and ancestors so I can compile a story and add my Cameron ancestor to the website; as 
being my ancestor.
If you can provide me with any information or put me in touch with someone who can; I would be most 
appreciative. Sincerely, James Cameron Gray

GUIN / BUCHAN / JOHNSON    March 15, 2006
Does anyone know anything about the Sarah GUIN, 5 Dec 1832 - 19 Sep 1903, who is buried at Philippi
Church in Hoke County? I am wondering if she is the wife of Arthur GUIN, who was born in 1841. Sarah 
was the daughter of Archibald BUCHAN and Sarah JOHNSON Buchan. There is an Arthur Guin buried there, 
but he is not the Arthur who was married to Sarah. Regards, Troy Wiley

HUGGINS    March 06, 2006
I just came across a query from Shannon Singletary from 2002, about her great grandmother, 
Sarah Marilda HUGGINS. Sarah Marilda HUGGINS was also my great grandmother, and Ed HUGGINS was 
my grandfather. He and his wife, Bessie Ella English HUGGINS, are buried at Carvers Creek Cemetary, 
which I believe is in Bladen County. My mother, their second oldest child, and her youngest sister, 
the baby of the family (they had 11 children) are the only two surviving. Mama will be 96 in May, 
and lives in the house my grandparents lived in when they moved to Bladen County in the 1930s. 
I tried replying to Shannon Singletary, but her (his?) e-mail address is no longer correct. Would 
you please post this information -- I'd be interested in hearing from other Huggins relatives.

BRYANT / HUX / KING    December 28, 2004
I am seeking information about William H. BRYANT. he would have been my GG Grandfather.
I understand that he was the Chief of the Cherokee Indian Tribe in Hoke County. He had
a daughter named Medora BRYANT who married Lert KING. Spelling of Lerk could also be 
Leart or Lurt. Lert Died 6 months before my grandfather and his twin were born in 1907.
I can not find any birth or death dates for lert or William H. BRYANT. William Bryant was 
married to Rebecca Elizabeth HUX. Her father was James Samuel HUX. I am seeking information
on them. I would really like information about the Indian side of us too. It's my understanding
that there were no birth or death certificates back in those days, so I don't know how to go
about proving my heritage and blood line. If you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.
There is also mention of Halifax County. My Grandfather's siblings were Bertha KING, Badger
KING, Caudy KING, Samson KING, and my grandfather and twin brother Elvert and Ervert KING.
Brenda Dain.

Virginia Caroline MCLEOD is my great grandmother who was born in Hoke, NC around 1875.  
They were of the Presbyterian faith. Thank you, John Pruett, Houston, TX.
