My name is Myrtle Bridges and I am the coordinator for the Hoke County, North Carolina USGenWeb Project. Hoke was formed in 1911 from Cumberland and Robeson Counties. It was named in honor of Robert F. Hoke, a major-general in the Confederate States Army. It lies in the southeastern part of North Carolina, bounded by Cumberland, Harnett, Moore, Robeson, and Scotland counties. Raeford is the county seat. Hoke has many historical cemeteries, most situated on our Fort Bragg military reservation. With it's two hundred and thirty two identifiable graves Longstreet Presbyterian Church Cemetery provides much genealogical information. As a researcher at the NC Department of Archives and History, I know the difficulty in obtaining needed information in a limited amount of time, especially if one is a non-resident of North Carolina. The USGenweb project is an excellent resource which only works when people share their knowledge. I am always happy to post information pertaining to this county and encourage you to contact Myrtle here. Please share your records with others and experience the joy that comes in helping someone find his Hoke County roots.

The Raeford-Hoke Museum is located on 111 S. Highland Street in Raeford, North Carolina. 
It is located on a park-like site comprising almost an entire block near downtown Raeford. It 
is a large two and one half story Southern Colonial Revival residence with a one and one half story 
kitchen wing attached to the rear. The house was the former home of large State Senator John W. 
McLauchlin and his wife Christian. It was built in 1905 as a wedding gift to each other.
The house was purchased in 2002 for a museum. It contains Government, Military, Church, Farm 
displays and many early life memorabilia. The museum is open on Sundays from 3 to 5 o'clock and 
Monday from 10:00 to 2:00. The admission is free. Joyce Monroe, Chairman.
