I am looking for proof of Andrew HADDOCK Sr. (d. 1793) and Elizabeth HICKS (d. 1808?) children. I believe my ancestor, Nancy HADDOCK STANSBURY (b. 1764 and d. 1854) was their daughter. I am hoping to find a Bible record, church record, or other document proving their family relationship. I know Andrew fought in the Revolutionary War. I know Nancy was married in Caswell County, NC.

“Hello,
In doing my family history I have found a listing for Sarah Jane HAWKINS b 1846 NC and died Jan 3 or 4 1929 as different dates on different sites I think she died on 3rd. They list burial site as Home Burying Grounds. As anyone run across as family cemetery for the MCKNIGHTS or TODDS in Durham. Sarah maiden name was MCKNIGHT and her mothers maiden name TODD. Sarah would be my gg grandmother.”

“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.
