HOKE COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA GENEALOGY
My name is Myrtle Bridges and I am the coordinator
for the Hoke County, North Carolina USGenWeb Project.
Hoke was formed in 1911 from Cumberland and Robeson Counties. It was
named in honor of Robert F. Hoke, a major-general in the Confederate States
Army. It lies in the southeastern part of North Carolina, bounded by Cumberland,
Harnett, Moore, Robeson, and Scotland counties. Raeford is the county seat.
has many historical cemeteries, most situated on our Fort
Bragg military reservation. With it's two hundred and
thirty two identifiable graves Longstreet Presbyterian
Church Cemetery provides much genealogical information.
As a researcher at the NC Department of Archives and History, I know the difficulty in
obtaining needed information in a limited amount of time, especially if one is a non-resident of
North Carolina. The USGenweb project is an excellent resource
which only works when people share their knowledge. I am always
happy to post information
pertaining to this county and encourage you to contact
Please share your records with others and experience the joy that comes in helping
someone find his Hoke County roots.
Please share your Hoke Genealogical Research with others.
Contact Myrtle. Thanks!
