Searching for details on Holsonbacks who are first documented in Caswell County in 1762 when Derick received a land grant for 400 acres. Nancy Holsonback received 100 acre grant in 1784. I descend from one of two orphans, John b. 1770 or Abraham b. 1775 both of whom were indentured to James Jay per Caswell County court records in 1786. Any info appreciated.

I am interested in any information pertaining to Rev. Mark Andrews who was the first pastor of the Antioch Baptist Church. He was born in 1774 and died in 1846. He was married to Elizabeth Bailey. His father was William Andrews who was born in 1750 and died in 1824. Mark had a son named John who was born in 1808. John married Cynthia Phillips from Chatham County. I am trying to document that John “Anders” Andrews was in fact Mark’s son.

L Burroughs writes:

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

I am researching my family tree and have hit a brick wall. My ancestor E.G. Mercer married a Mary Suit/Soot. The only information I have is that Mary Suit/Soot was born in North Carolina possibly Orange County.
I was wondering if anyone is researching a similar name or can point me in a new direction.
Thank you for your time.
