Looking for information on the GAYLARD, GAYLORD, or GAILLARD family of Hyde and Beaufort counties. I have a lot of information to share on this family. I'm particularly interested in finding more information on Thomas GAYLARD / GAYLORD, Sr. and his son, John GAYLORD. Love to hear from you. Thank you.

Will the real William H. GIBBS please stand up? I'm having trouble sorting out my N.C. Gibbs genealogy. I have a William GIBBS migrating to Goose Creek Island. (Pamlico Co. - back then Beaufort). He is there for the l850 census with a one year old male named Nathanial. (Nathanial GIBBS is my great grandfather...thus William is my great, great grandfather.). The census says that William was born in l8l8. An earlier Henry GIBBS was in a Goose Creek Island census in l8l0. He was over 45, making him born before l765. He was only there in that census. Does anyone know who this Henry GIBBS was? Was he the father of William GIBBS... or grandfather? I can't make the connection at this generation so as to go any further back. In l820, there was a GIBBS on Goose Creek Island... a female was head of household. Her name was Sabra. Perhaps Henry died and Sabra remained on the island. If anyone has knowledge of the GIBBS from Hyde Co. and Goose Creek Island, I'd appreciate a reply. Thanks!

I am researching the GRADELESS family in Beaufort County. Timothy Gradeless came to the area from Dorchester County in Maryland. I am trying to make connections between Timothy GRADELESS, who appeared in the Hyde County in 1749 (North Carolina Record of Deeds A, 1736-1762), with John GRADELESS who was in the 1790 Federal Census in Beaufort County (age 17), or with any GRADELESS that prceeded him. Also, Amariah B. GRADELESS appears on the 1850 Census in the household of Redding GRADELESS and is listed as a farmhand. I know that Amariah GRADELESS was not the son of Redding. I would like to determine who Amariah's father was. Any one with documentation on these persons who can make connections would sure be appreciated.
