Return to Dare County

Dare County, North Carolina
Military Records

Even though Dare did not become a county until 1870, her people played a vital part in the military.  Some of these people lived in Hyde, Currituck or Tyrrell counties before portions were relinquished to form Dare.  If anyone has military records pertaining to Dare County surnames please contact me.
