Query submitted by L Burroughs

My husband’s family – Burroughs – came from the Hillsboro NC area in the 1880’s – and I am looking for information on the family – do you have family folders or reference information on local families. Do you have any information on the family – or can you suggest someone who would do a little research?
This is a black family and the earliest I can find on the census is a William Burroughs who was born in 1856 and married 1st Martha and second Emma Pratt. I have a listing of 5 children from both wives. The family moved to Madison NJ in the 1890’s along with a great number of people from that area.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions
