I was looking at the Chatham Co N.C. web page for the first time and
wanted to tell you what a great web page it is. You have done a lot of work
with getting the Deeds on the page. The page has so much information, it is
one of the best web pages I've seen. I just wanted to thank everybody for all
the work that has been put into the web page.

Again, thank you.

(Mr. Brooks has made a notable contribution to the page with the "Siler History"
You have put together one of the best county sites on usgenweb.
Congratulations! I wish my ancestors had crossed over the county line into
Chatham, because then, maybe I could find some info about them. Keep up the good work!
You've done a great job with the Chatham page. Thanks.
I think it would be great to see some photos of historic or scenic sites
for those of us who have never been there. It would add a great deal to
our knowledge. Thanks for a neat web site, too! Willie Krug
(There are some photos of the churches now and am trying to get pictures of town and area, too)
First I have to say that if no one has told you recently how wonderful
are or thanked you for all the work you have done on the Chatham Co. site,
I'm here to do that now. I started doing research about 5 years ago and then
stopped because of other things going on in my life. I have to say that
there really wasn't much on line then as far as actual records. There was a
lot of information and how to do things though. I'm not even sure if there
was a Chatham Co. site at that time. Well, thank you. I've gotten a lot of
good information on the data you transcribed.
I did notice on the Chatham Co. site that you are researching the Poe family.
my gg grandfather was Stanford Poe. He's mentioned in George Dismukes' will as his
grandson. I'm pretty sure that Elisha Poe, who is Ruben Poe's son, is
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Can I write if I don't have a problem?
Your site is an absolute joy! What a mind-boggling amount of work you
have done. I am so thrilled to have
followed the trail to your page and to have found so much data on my Teague family. Had I found nothing,
it would have been more than worth the visit, which was a long one.
Nothing even comes close to the US GenWeb Project, but your site is
truly impressive. I can see it is a
labor of love.
Thank you so much!
Hooked on genealogy does it for me!
This is lovely lovely county site...so much information..
It certainly is nice...wish more counties would do the same.
My grandmother was Nannie Bell Bryan Philpott originally from Chatham County (Williams Township). My cousin Ruth Couch of Durham may have contacted you at some point with information about my grandmother's family history which is linked to yours through the CLARK family. I am impressed with your detailed work on the CLARK connections! I have a family Bible listing family lineage to William Clark and his wife Susannah (my grandmother's grand parents) where William's birth year is listed at 1775. My cousin Ruth researched their burial plots in a remote grave yard in Chatham County last year. Several plots are there but I have yet to visit the site myself. Also in the family Bible is the name Phoebe Clark which my cousin Ruth has informed me is a niece to President Jefferson--if i understand correctly. I have read with great interest the names of slaves owned by the CLARK family --you have researched all of this so well. I read your research from time to time on the internet and enjoy learning more about the family. I visit Chatham County about twice a year and enjoy going to the Bell's Chapel cemetery where many of the BRYAN family is buried.
Please keep up the good work and as I find out anything I will notify you! I am living in Hope Mills, North Carolina --near Fayetteville and am a high school teacher I am a Durham native (where my grandmother arrived with here widowed mother Menerva upon William's death).
I have been most interested in family history since my parents died several years ago and have been fortunate that Ruth has researched so much for all of us to learn about this part of our family...as well as your information online. I just wanted to congratulate you on a great job!

I have been working on my husband's family tree (Chatham County) and I get your listserv messages. I went to the NC GenWeb website to the "What's New" page and see that you have a link to the NC Digital History Textbook! This project was several years in the making and is based on primary sources to tell the story of our state. I am so pleased to see that you have listed as a resource and I hope that researchers will enjoy using it!
All the Best,
