Hi Ginger, First, I want to say thank you to you and all your gang at the Warren County website. You do a fantastic job. It has been a lot of help to me, and I just simply enjoy it so much. So many names I have heard my mother and her sisters talk about during my younger years. One aunt was Tempie Tucker, postmistress at Warren Plains for a number of years, and Mary Tucker Rodwell, wife of Arthur Rodwell, who was the Seaboard Airline Railroad agent for many years also at Warren Plains. Keep up the good work!
I have copies of wills from a great-great grandfather Ransom Walker, and a great-great-great grandfather Daniel Newman. I have a partial copy of a payroll list from the Revolutionary War from "the United States of America to the State of North Carolina" and is for cash paid to Jacob Blunt, Paymaster. I have the first page and the page on which my ancestor, Thomas Paschall, is listed. Paschall was from Bute County, but I do not see any counties named in this list. The Walker will and the Revolutionary War accts. I have recently received from NC State Archives.
Are you interested in having copies of these items? I can type and Email copies to you, but there are words in all that I cannot be sure of. I would like for someone who has had more experience with old copies to check behind me. You will have to instruct me on how to go about this. There may be other items you may be interested in, but this is as far as I am prepared to go right now.
My name is Ray (Poland) Bradshaw, I live in Franklin, VA. I am female--there is confusion because of my name sometimes.

Name: Weldon
Searching for any information on the Weldon's of Warren County from the period 1775 to 1850. Find record of
William Weldon with wife "Winnie" and would like to know ancestry and decendants. He ran a tavern in the early
1800's from info we find. Possibly he was William
Weldon, Sr. with son William Weldon, Jr. Do not know
if this connects with Sales Weldon for sure.
Ancestry.com indicates a William Weldon of Warren
County, possibly brother to Mary Weldon who
married Judge Hall of Warrenton about that time.
Would appreciate any information available.
