Thanks to contributor Doug Rador, a new deed has been added to the site. Doug acquired this deed from an online auction and will eventually donate it to the NC State Archives. The deed registers a land transaction between George WHITFIELD and Jesse LASSITER, dated March of 1845. Check it out!
Another link has been added to the Education page – a link to a website that includes senior class photos of the school graduates from 1926-1970. Eventually, these will be added to the North Carolina Yearbook Index as well!
In a new database added to the NCGenWeb you will find listings of students from North Carolina colleges who are from Lenoir County. As of this writing there are 140+ names on the list, but this is sure to grow as I continue to add to the database.
You can find the list of students here. Surnames include Bell, Churchill, Daughety, Davis, Fields, Harper, Howard, Moseley, Pittman, Rouse and more.
The students listed are mostly seniors who graduated about 1930 and earlier. In the upcoming months additional entries will be added. A link to this resource has been added to the Education page. Enjoy!
Welcome to the new site for the Lenoir County NCGenWeb project.
The site has undergone a transition and the NCGenWeb project is now looking for a new county coordinator.
The purpose of the site is to help provide FREE genealogy data, a feat that can only be accomplished with your help. Please send in any family history information relevant to Lenoir County.
