Lason Mackey August 14, 2003

I'm searching for the father of Benjamin MACKEY. Benjamin MACKEY was married to Mary Jane BARBER and they lived in Hyde County. I'm told Benjamin's father had an Indian name.  Is there anyway to find out what his father's name is, and/or is there any type of Native American Census for Hyde County and surrounding areas?  Was there a census taken for the residents who lived on the Mattamuskeet Reservation? If so, where does one find this information?  Thanks!

Vi Crowder September 8, 2001

I am descended from Sophia MANN who was born on the 6th of Oct. in 1790 in Hyde County. She married Spencer DANIEL(S) of Wanchese. I know that her parents and brother lived in Hyde County. But I know very little more. One of the books I've read had an article stating that the MANN family have lived in the same home for almost 200 years. Is there a MANN descendant out there who can help me learn more of the MANNS? I know that such an old family must have wonderful tales to share! I am "hungry" to hear them! Is there a family history available somewhere? Thank you for taking the time to read my query!

Looking for info on Roy MANNING, who was born 1900, died 1977, in Greenville, NC. He was married to Hulda JONES. I know that they lived in Hyde Co., NC in 1931, when my father was born. I can't find hide nor hair of him. Please help.


Edie Rider June 25, 1999

I have two questions. First, Benjamin MANNING (b: 2/6/1889 in Hyde Co) supposedly shot and killed Bennie MANNING accidentally with a shotgun that fell. Bennie was not a relative of Benjamin. I am trying to find any newspaper article or other document that might document this event. I believe that when this event occurred, they both lived in Currituck Township. Benjamin lived in Sladesville and/or Bellhaven at some point after this event, I believe. Second, Bess SMITH arrived in Sladesville around 1900-1902 to begin teaching at the school there. She only taught for one year then she married Benjamin MANNING and quite teaching. I am trying to document this teaching endeavor including the dates and what grade(s) she may have taught, and where she taught. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Florence Fulford Moore November 28, 1999

Is anyone who is from Hyde County researching Thomas and Elizabeth MARTIN's lineage? There is an Elizabeth MARTIN (will of Mar. 30, 1767 - South River, NC) and her will lists a connection with Prudence FULFORD. I am seeking to learn whether this may be my missing MARTIN line! They may have had a son named William MARTIN, whose daughter married a Joseph FULFORD ca. 1730s - her name may have been Ann or Nancy. There is also another MARTIN marriage into the FULFORD line ca. 1780s (another Ann MARTIN to Enoch FULFORD, who was the grandson of William FULFORD and Sevill Pigott FULFORD). I do not know if she was from this same MARTIN line or another one. Your response would be deeply appreciated. Thanks.

My ancestors, John MASON, Sr., 1662-1702, and John MASON, Jr., 1688-1747, lived in Hyde County. Then some went to Craven County to live and after 1722, some lived in Carteret County.

Searching for documentation of the parents of Benjamin MASON, b. ca. 1786, d. ca. 1870/71 in Hyde Co., NC, m. Mary "Polly" JARVIS, dau. of Foster JARVIS (III) and Delacy. To the best of my knowledge, there is no proof that he was the son of Christopher MASON, son of Benjamin MASON and Elizabeth JONES, as stated in W. H.

Cathy Straley January 23, 2002

I'm looking for David MASON from Hyde County, NC, who commanded a company of Tennessee Rangers in 1812-1813 during America's War of 1812. My ancestor --John COX -- served in David MASON's Company, joining up in Franklin, Tennessee, in the summer of 1812. Captains organizing military companies most often solicit friends and neighbors, and it's therefore presumed that David MASON and my ancestor were acquaintances (or possibly relatives) prior to these 1812-1813 military encounters. My John COX (b: 1787 VA) also had ties to NC, MO & KY. After his war service, John went west to southwest Arkansas. If you know of David MASON or any connections to my John COX, please respond. Thanks.

Seeking information on Ann NOLEN, born 1787 in NC. Her parents owned a plantation with 99 slaves. She married (___?___) WILKINSON and had 12 children.

In 1850 David and family were living in Macoupin Co., IL and my gg-grandmother Ann was living with a son, Noah Hampton WILKINSON, in St, Clair Co., IL. Any assistance will be appreciated.
