I am seeking information on my grandparents and great-grandparents who were born in Beaufort County. My grandmother was Girtha Mae KIRMAN; her mom's name was Mary Frances (GARRISH) KIRMAN. My grandfather was William Riley HALL, however I do not know my great-grandfather's name. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

Looking for African American Samuel HARRIS family. He married Hetty E. SPENCER 05-04-1892 in Hyde County. His name appears on a family deed showing his residence was Beaufort Co. They had 13 children; Magellion, Rufus, Louvenia, Christina, Hetta Bell, Odis Lee, Naomi, Adelaide, Inner Lee, Lovie, George Washington, Ruth, and Samuel. Samuel is the only one I have found any information on, born 01/18/1918, died 11/28/1991 in Greensville, NC. If anyone has any information on any of the members of this family I would greatly appreciate hearing from you!

I am trying to find any information available on the African American HARRIS, VASS and Reddick families. Samuel Allen HARRIS was the son of John “Jack” HARRIS of Fairfield, and Lake Landing in Hyde Co. Samuel moved to Pantego, probably some time in 1910 with his wife Elizabeth (SPENCER) HARRIS and children, Samuel; George; Otis; Naomi; Ruth; Adelaide; Ina Mae; and Lovie; Rufus; Christina; and Hettie HARRIS.  Hannah and Harrison VASS were the step children of John “Jack” HARRIS. Their mother was the second wife of Jack HARRIS, Mariah VASS. Harrison also moved to Pantego where he married Mattie REDDICK and had a son Willie L. VASS. I have confirmation from my mother that the Reddick families are our cousins, because they visited my grandmother Clida Bell HARRIS-ALLEN when she moved to Norfolk, VA and Mt. Vernon, NY. I am trying to establish if they were related prior to the marriage of Harrison VASS and Mattie REDDICK. Anyone have any information on any of these families it would be greatly appreciated. I am willing to share any information I have with anyone who needs it.

Does anyone have a will for Stephen Harvey?  I would also like to know how Bryan Winfield, and Wyroitt Ormand and Richard Harvey were related to Seth and Wyriott Harvey. Also what happened to Wyriott and Seth Harvey?  I believe Seth is my husband's 2x great grandfather who died in Mobile in 1889.  I would also like to know who Stephen Harvey's father was.  I need to know what relation, if any, the following people were to Stephen Harvey -- Willedeny, Richard Harvey Jr., and  Richard Harvey Sr.


Robert Henderson July 6, 2002

I am researching the HENDERSON's of Hyde county and came across the 1715 Beaufort/Hyde corn list. In this list and the 1717 land list I found a Thos. HENDERSON who had a patent on 300 acres on the west side of the Pamlico River. I am trying to pin down this location. On the map there doesn't seem to be a west side of the river, only north and south banks. Does anyone have any ideas on where this location is? My earliest HENDERSON is Thomas HENDERSON (1784) who owned land on the Pungo River in western Hyde county.

I am looking for information on Elizabeth HOGG, born in Hyde Co. in 1774. She married Thomas RICHARDS from Beaufort Co. According to oral history she was either from France or England. I have the book "Hathaways of America" and would be glad to assist any one in that area. Thanks.
