***************************

WHAT’S IMPORTANT IN THE POSTED CATEGORIES AND FILES (in a rough order of importance)?

1.  NASH SURNAMES, 1777 – 1820 includes the signers of the 1777 petition for creating the county; the 1782 Tax List (the only online source of the complete tax list); and the U.S. Censuses from 1790 to 1820.  It is massive coverage of Nash surnames from the first settlers to 1820 (this is the only online list of Nash surnames in the first forty years).  WE NEED SOME RESEARCHER or RESEARCHERS TO WORK ON SURNAMES BEFORE THE COUNTY WAS FOUNDED IN 1777 IN EDGECOMBE COUNTY for those families found at physical locations in Nash, after the creation of the county.

2.  CEMETERY LISTINGS. The cemeteries have been reorganized in the major categories of Family, Church and Community with each cemetery survey indicating, at the beginning, the surnames found in each graveyard, the earliest and latest burials plus the date of the most recent survey (this is the only online source for such information). Also, whether or not a cemetery is still taking burials is indicated.  Further, for modern surnames (since 1900) in Nash County this is the best single online source.

3.  FAMILY OUTLINES AND RESEARCH. If all the family researchers, whose grandparents lived their lives in Nash County would outline the families of their parents what a treasure it would be for coming generations of kin.  It is a deceptively difficult task of research to find and post complete information on the families of just your grandparents and all the people who married into the family.  The county coordinator will help anyone who wishes to do this and provide suggestions on the best approach.  If you wish to use it, there is a form included as a model for it, however, if you prefer another organizational approach that is fine and acceptable.

4.  MILITARY INFORMATION ON MEN AND THEIR FAMILIES FROM NASH COUNTY. The site contains extensive information on all our the wars in which Nash men have served.  The Civil War has received special attention with a posting of all the published military records for the major Nash regiments including: the 30th North Carolina Infantry, Company I; the 47th North Carolina Infantry, Company A; and the 47th North Carolina Infantry, Company D.  Three major regiments remain for abstracting.

5.  THE HISTORY OF THE TOWNS AND TOWNSHIPS, CHURCHES and RURAL SECTIONS IN NASH COUNTY INCLUDING MAPS. When family researchers work beyond the collective memory of their kin it is too often reduced to date and place for births, marriages, deaths and burials plus family connections revealed by various sources.  Only through an appreciation of local county and related state/colony history, in other words, what happened at various times in the sweep of North Carolina’s evolution, is there any context for their lives.  This site is very sensitive to that problem and assumes that everyone wishes to know more about the times in which their kin lived their lives in the county.
