Welcome to the Bute County NCGenWeb site! A North Carolina Historic County

We wish to thank both of our late former hosts, Nola Duffy and Winona Solomon, for their many  years of service for the Bute County website and are forever grateful for their contributions.

This  is a sketch of Yeargain's/Yeargan's Chapel as it was supposed to  have been, called "Putting on Sunday Shoes". Yeargan's Chapel was located on the North side of the Roanoke in the Pigeon Roost Creek area, which is now probably under the lake.   According to his travel diary, Asbury preached at the chapel on Christmas Eve in the 1770s.  No doubt, many of our Warren Co. ancestors attended the service.  We are indebted to Bebe Fox, a descendant of Samuel Yeargain for  sharing this.

Bute Co. was formed  from Granville Co. in 1764 and  abolished in 1779 when it was divided into Warren Co. and Franklin CoThe courthouse of Bute Co. was located at a place called "Buffalo Rice Path" on land owned by Jethro Sumner about 6 miles southeast of present Warrenton, North Carolina.  Most of the records of Bute County are still located in Warren Co. though some may be found in Franklin Co.  Read more about the History of Bute County.
