Surnames Hopkins
Comments: I found the 1790 Census Substitute (Tax List) for Granville County transcribed on the following website:

I am researching my Hopkins ancestors and the only two Hopkins I find on this page is George in the Oxford District and Ann in the Tabb's Creek District.
A Hopkins forum on mentions a Richard as well as a Benjamin Hopkins that were listed in the 1786 Nap Reed's district:

I assume this is the Knap of Leebe (or Leeds) District from the aforementioned transcribed website. There are no Hopkins listed in this district. Could there have been an error or omission in transcription?
If anyone has access to the 1786 Granville County tax list could you please look up Hopkins in the Knap (Nap) of Leed (Reed) District? Does anyone know the correct name of the district?

Thanks for your help.

I am seeking information about the parents of James B. Jackson. He was also known as J.B. Jackson. He was a schoolteacher and later a Baptist minister. His obituary said he was born in Granville Co., North Carolina in 1820. I have census records that show him in Wake Co., N.C. in 1850 and 1860. His family left North Carolina and moved to Missouri in 1867. He was married to Helen Knight. I just can't find out who his parents were. I would appreciate any information you might have about him.

Nahum Sanders is first found in Granville Co., NC as witness to a land transaction when James & Margaret Cash sold Joseph Miller 200 acres of land (Deed Book H, pg. 54).

Nahum is listed in the 1769 Granville Co., Tar River District tax roll with 1 white male and 7 blacks. He is also listed on the 1771 Granville Co., tax roll.

On March 1, 1770 he witnessed the will of Milhas Miars.

He took the State Oath on May 22, 1778 in the Tar River District.

There doesn't seem to be a land grant for Nahum, so, now I am looking for a deed.

Nahum's name is frequently misspelled and I have found "Nahum" spelled Nahom, Naum, Naaman, and Nathan. And Sanders is misspelled Saunders and Landers.

Nahum is our "brick wall" and any suggestions and/or information would be greatly appreciated!

Surnames Royal, Hayes/Hays
I am searching for the marriage information of Nancy Hayes to Joseph Royal. Family legend tells that they married in Granville, NC July 23, 1808. Nancy is thought be have been born in NC about 1786. I have read that Granville was not incorporated until 1810. Could someone point me in the direction I might find records previous to this?

Known children of Joseph and Nancy Hayes Royal were: John Edward, born February 13, 1808, North Carolina;
Peter, born 1810, North Carolina; and
James, born 1819, North Carolina. It is believed there was also a son named William (possibly with middle initial A.)

I would be grateful to anyone that could help me find a source or links for these names
1. Marriage record (Joseph Royal & Nancy Hayes)
2. Birth records for any of the children.

Thanks to everyone that reads this request of a novice to NC searches. eroyal

I am looking for two ancestors named William Washington. The first Wm. Washington was born in 1721 in Virginia and migrated to Granville, N.C. but died in Hancock Co., Ga. He was married to Tabatha Reeves in Virginia and her death was in Granville, N.C. in 1777.

His son, also William Washington was born in Granville in 1750 and was married to Elizabeth Alexander. His brother was Ephraim Washington and you do have a document that he signed after the revolutionary war. Is it possible to get a copy of that document?

Do you have records that go back that far? Thanks for your help.
