“I am researching my my 5x Great Grandparents who were John and Margaret WILKINSON, They lived in Orange/Chatham County, NC. And their son, Jacob WILKINSON my 4x Great Grandfather b.1770 in Orange County, NC. He married Amy BRADY (CREAGER?) She was b. in 1773.

My question is, are there any references; books, documents or stories regarding my WILKINSON family. I did purchase “”The WILKINSON Chronicles”” written by Dorothy VESPER Cook in Peru, IN., but it was researched before computers. In the chronicles is John’s will and a few stories of my family line but little regarding
John’s father. Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
Virginia Hager”

“Hello,

I’m hoping you can help me with a clue regarding Archelaus WILLSON/WILSON. There are several spellings in records to his first name – including Hercules.  He appears in Orange County, NC with Robert WILLSON around 1756 and they both purchase next to each other.  He and Robert help Richard HOLMAN/HOLEMAN and William CHURTON survey land.  I have several land records for Archelaus & Robert, and Robert married Ann LATTA.  

There is little information about Archelaus after this period until the notation in the “Orange County, NC Court Minutes  1777-1786 Vol III”, it provides a [1206]-80-folio 40 Feb Term 1780 record:  “An Acct. of Sales of the Estate of Archelaus WILSON decd. was returned in open Court and Ordered to be Recorded.”

Is there a record trail of the Archelaus’ Will or Estate who died in 1780?  

Incidentally, there is another Archelaus WILSON (Robert’s grandson) who married Elizabeth MCMULLEN; this family has the same Y-DNA as my colonial era William/Capt Samuel/Lt Col George WILLSON/WILSON in Augusta County/Pendleton County, Va.  I am hoping the elder Archelaus and his Will/Estate provides a clue.

Thank you VERY much for any help/direction you can provide!

There is a strong possibility that my ancestor Michael GROAT (GROTE) and members of his family, including sister Margaret and other family members, lived in Orange County, even fighting in the Revolutionary War. We have documentation that suggests they were very closely connected with the DAVIS and GAGE families, moving with them to Canada in the late 1700′s. Michael was a black, freeman or a mulatto. I notice that a Mr. Pickett is listed as a contact for the DAVIS family and I would like to contact him or any others who may have information.

“Looking for any BRYAN, BRYANT’s in Orange Co. , NC from 1780 to1850. I found a record for a Thomas BRYAN (probable in old court records that I have lost and can’t find again). Any help would be appreciated.
I was of the opinion that their had been some BRYAN research done around that time. If anyone knows a contact please let me know. Send me a phone no and I will call. I have free long distance.

Was the Matthew MCCULLERS listed on your site from Wake County related to the SPEIGHT family of Wake County, NC? He was one of the executors for the Jan.8, 1809 will of William SPEIGHT of Wake Co. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

“New member. First query. I have been searching for the grave of William Thomas GEORGE, Sr. who according to his obituary, was buried in Bethesda Church Cemetery. I have searched all the major websites (cemetery census, find a grave, etc) without success. I even found a burial record for Bethesda Cemetery with Family Search and had it shipped to my local research center. He was not listed there. My only hope is to find some type of original records. I have checked with the church and the person they directed me to. I believe he is there at Bethesda in an unmarked grave having been buried sometime 1907.

Thanks in advance for any help.”

I am trying to prove that Allen RIGSBY who was lndentured to Matthew STROUD in 1779 was a) not related to the RIGBYES who at the time lived in Savannah Ga. b) more than likely was related to the RIGSBEES of Orange and Chatham Ctys of NC during that timeframe. Am trying to establish his mother and whether she was related or he was related to the STROUD’s. He inherited from a Sarah LAIN (Sarah was supposedly his mother’s name) Estate. Was she his mother and why did she leave him with the STROUD’s until he was grown?
