“Hello,

I was walking my dog a couple weeks ago when I stumbled across an old cemetery in my neighborhood, and I would like to learn more about it.

The cemetery is located across the street from Kingdom Hall Church at 3302 Silver Star Dr. in Durham, 27713.

I found two intact headstones and several metal headstones with glass covers over paper names. There are also a couple of rows of indentions in the ground, which I assume to be other burial sites. Most of the dates I can read are from the 1920s or so.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated. And if you need more information, I can go back there and write down any names and dates I see.

Thank you,
James ”

“I am interested in any information on aThomas MCCLURE who was in Orange County ca 1753-1759.  He signed Petition to the King as a Representative of Orange County in 1759.  I believe he is my 6th ggrandfather.  I noted on your list of surnames that MCCLURE, MCCLUER and MCLURE 1750-1820 is listed as families of interest.

This Thomas received a warrant for land in July 19, 1756 in vicinity of Mebane’s Mill, South Buffalo Creek joining Mebane’s line.

Thomas and Francis MCCLURE were both certified as chain carriers in July 1756.  They were both later in Rowan County along with Andrew.

Any info where they came from; other family., etc would be most appreciated.

“I am researching my Grandmother’s family: RIDENHOUR – STEWART/STUART.  I’m searching their connection to the MCPHERSON family by way of a MCPHERSON daughter, Mary, who married Edward STEWART/STUART, whose parents may or may not have been Samuel and Jane STEWART/STUART.  I have also found an Edward who married a Mary MCPHERSON; his parents names were John and Rachael STEWART/STUART. The thing is, one set of parents are from North Carolina and the other set are from Virginia. I was hoping you could help me find a connection.  Thank you.
