New Book: Miles Lassiter (circa 1777-1850) of Randolph County

While browsing the North Carolina Genealogy Research Community Facebook page tonight, I noticed a link shared to a story about a woman’s journey to document the life of one of her ancestors.


The story, published today in the Courier-Tribune newspaper of Asheboro, NC, describes the work done by Margo Lee Williams in tracing the life of her ancestor, Miles Lassiter. ┬áLassiter, was an early African-American Quaker and Ms. Williams has spent more than 20 years researching his life and his family. She’s learned quite a bit about him and I’m sure her work can serve as inspiration for many of us working on our family history.

Ms. Williams will be doing a book-signing this weekend at the Asheboro Public Library – an event sponsored by the Randolph County Genealogical Society.

The book is available in print and electronic format.
