Genealogical Notes

Note: Ocracoke Island, which was previously part of Carteret County, became part of Hyde County in 1845.  Since Thomas Wahab was a seafaring man it may account for why he was never enumerated in any census record after 1800.  His wife, Mary, was listed as head of household from 1810-1840.
