Family Histories and/or Family Narratives

Those of us who spend much of our free time on our genealogical pursuits often gloss over the fact that between birth date, marriage date and death date, our ancestors actually had a life. Nothing means more to someone than actually finding biographical sketches of their ancestors, however brief.  If you have any biographical sketches prepared about or by your Warren County, North Carolina ancestors, we hope you will consider sharing them with others in our Warren County circle of cousins. They can include a brief description of family life or any particular historical incidents that may be of interest to researchers.  Please email us to contribute materials to this website.

Note on following COLLINS Files: Some researchers have mis-identified the Pleasant Hill (in Ridgeway)  purchased by Michael Collins as "Rivenoak", however Hawkins family records clearly show the home of Philemon Hawkins, d.1801,  in their possession until it was sold in 1853 to John Clark of New Bern, NC, who again sold it in 1856 to James R. Carroll, who renamed it "Rivenoak", which is located in current day Vance Co. The property that Michael Collins purchased was a different one that belonged to Col. Benjamin Hawkins (1754-1818) son of Philemon, d.1801, who also named his property Pleasant Hill, I have added the link to the real Pleasant Hill/Rivenoak below. DW
