MORTON / USSERY    November 07, 2008
Greenberry MORTON b. in 1804 married Winnifred USSERY b. 1804 probably in Richmond County.  They 
were living in Richmond County for the 1830 census before moving to Randolph County Alabama by the 1840 
census.  Greenberry's full name we believe is Samuel Greenberry Morton.  Winnifred's father was Robert 
USSERY and there is a lot of information out there on the Usserys but none of us have ever been able to 
find parents of Greenberry MORTON.  Surely there are people still living in the area that just may be able 
to connect Greenberry to some of their Morton ancestors.  Greenberry was a potter in the pottery business 
as was the Robert USSERY family that migrated to Alabama with him.  Greenberry is listed in most of the 
censuses as Green Morton.  I am hoping that some of you have a family Bible or something with my ggg 
grandfather listed in it. Lynda Kendrick of Tenn

CALDER / CAULDER / WALTERS    October 31, 2008
I'm interested in a Peter CALDER of early 1800s Richmond Co. NC and who was his wife and children, 
he appears on the 1810 Richmond Co. NC census but I don't find him in 1820...a John CALDER who I believe 
was Peter's son and appears on the 1830, 40, 50 Richmond Co. NC census, Williamson Dist. and 1860 Cumberland 
Co. NC census, had wife named Hannah and several children... and a Peter CALDER who I believe was John's 
son and appears on the 1850 & 60 Richmond Co. Williamson Dist., NC census, their surname could be spelled 
Caulder too...I believe my husband descends from them thru his Alexander C. CALDER/CAULDER who 
is on the 1870 Richmond Co. NC census with his siblings in the home of his older sister Sarah and her husband 
John WALTERS. Alexander C. Caulder migrated to Calhoun Co. MS in the early c1871, had 3 wives and 21 children,
died 1926 in Coffeeville, MS...John CALDER and family are listed on the 1830 census as white, the 1840 census 
as Free Persons of Color, the 1850 census as white and the 1860 census as mulatto's....they were darker skinned 
but not of the black race, they were of Scottish ancestry. In a picture I have of Alexander C. CAULDER he could
have been mistaken for black too ... If you think you connect to any of these people I will share what I have but 
not of our living generations. Thanks, Kay Woods of Tenn

HASTY    June 12, 2008
Can you tell me where to find a map showing where both the Fayetteville Township and the 
Black Jack District were in Richmond County @ 1800 census time?

Am trying to identify both James HASTY and Elijah HASTY both living in Richmond County at that time 
and identify if either or both are related to either or both of the two separate legs of the HASTY 
families that exist at Caledonia UMC South of Laurinburg.

At this time there are two separate branches of the HASTY family at Caledonia UMC. Several members 
over five generations in each family leg lie in the cemetery near each other and yet when I went to 
the Hasty reunion a couple of years ago they claimed that their leg are not related to our leg. 

Any suggestions or info for the HASTY family (either branch) prior to 1800 Will be appreciated

Thanks, Pete Foster

STANBACK / McIVER / SMITH    April 18, 2008
I am looking for the ancestors of Marcellus Chandler STANBACK who died in nearby Sanford, Lee Co., 
(it was Moore at the time of his death) NC in 1899.  He was married to Mary Ann "Mamie" MCIVER in 
1885 in Richmond Co., NC.  Mamie and Marcellus had one daughter, Jane McIver STANBACK born 1898, 
before his untimely death in 1899.  Mamie McIver STANBACK remarried in 1905 to Newton H. SMITH in 
Moore Co., NC.  Newton Smith and his new wife Mamie and step daughter Jane McIver STANBACK are 
listed in Cumberland Co., NC in the 1910 Census.  Newton SMITH died in 1915 and Mamie SMITH is 
listed with her daughter Jane "Mamie" McIver STANBACK in the 1920 Cumberland Co., NC Census.  
I'm at a loss after that.  I'm interested in finding out what happened to Mamie McIver STANBACK SMITH 
and her daughter Jane McIver STANBACK.  Did she marry and have children???  Any help would be much 
appreciated.  Thanks....Charlie Rathbun, Jasper, GA

GRAHAM / BERRYMAN    March 22, 2008
According to Stafford GRAHAM's RW pension application, he was born in Richmond Co., NC in 1757 
which I know would have been Anson County at that time.  He married Elizabeth BERRYMAN on Nov 1778 
in Richmond County, NC by John Bounds, Esq.  They had 10 children but only 8 lived to adulthood.  
Their children included Perry, Elizabeth, William and Cynthia thus proven.  In 1820 they lived in 
Guilford County, NC and by 1833 had moved to Pickens Dist., SC where Stafford died in 1833.  
I believe that Stafford was a descendant of Edward GRAHAM and Patience STAFFORD/HULL from Fairfax 
County, VA since they named a son, Stafford.  But I am having trouble establishing a link. 
Do any Richmond County researchers recognize any of these people?  There does not appear to be any 
marriage record for them except in the pension papers.  I know that there were a lot of GRAHAMs in 
Richmond Co. but none seem to be kin to Stafford.  Does anyone know of any GRAHAM family living 
there in 1757? Any help with this line would be greatly appreciated. 
Thank you, Susan Brock-Booker, Walhalla, SC

BATTON / BADDEN / BATTEN    March 01, 2008
I am seeking information on the origins of one Wiley BATTON (sometimes written as BADDEN, BATTEN), 
free African American male aged about 26 years on the 1840 census of Fair Ground District, Richmond Co.  
He appears there with one African American woman of like age whom we believe to be his first wife, Anna 
RUSSELL, and a young male who is likely to be their son, Daniel (b. 1837).  They do not appear in an 1836 
tax list of "upper Fair Ground District" presented on the North Carolina GenWeb site, and they do not 
appear in an earlier census in North Carolina.  Circa 1845 the family moved to Indiana, where they appear 
in the 1850 Vigo County census.
We know that Wiley BATTON's mother's name was Nancy BATTON.  During his lifetime, Wiley never reported the 
name of his father. We would like to know the origins of both Wiley and Nancy.  If it is possible that Wiley 
was recently freed from slavery in 1839-1840, would anyone have documentation of his deed of emancipation in 
Richmond Co?  Would anyone have knowledge of any other records of Wiley BATTON during his stay in this county?
All responses to this enquiry are greatly appreciated. Sincerely, M M Shepard

McINNIS / McDANIEL / NICHOLSON / McRAE    January 19, 2008
Greetings... Trying to piece the puzzle and wonder if you had any information on
Murdock McINNIS and Christian McDANIEL? It's my understanding they were married in Richmond 
County in 1804 and had five children:  Malcom, Isabel, Norman, Nancy and Daniel.  I also 
have a copy of a Guardianship Bond dated 1826.
Malcom married Margaret NICHOLSON and had four children: Samuel, Mary Ann, Jennet and Margaret.  
They - at one time were at Mineral Springs Church and in 1837 moved to Mt. Carmel. Samuel (my 
G-G-Grandfather) married Catherine McRAE in 1856 and they moved to Barbour County, Alabama.  
They had 7 children:  Hugh, Margaret, Mary Ann, Isabella, Catherine, Malcolm Daniel and Phillip 
Douglas. Any info or your pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. 
Thanks so much - Happy New Year... Ken McInnis 

William PERMENTER b ca 1848 in Richmond Co, NC married  Jennie 
WILLIAMSON January 18, 1877.  Jane had evidently been married before.  
Her maiden name unknown.  In 1880 Richmond census at age 33 William was 
working in the Cotton Mill, Jane age 42 lives there with two daughters, 
Sarah 15 and Sarah 13. 
    William PERMENTER was the son of James A PERMENTER and his wife

James TUNSTALL in 1871 and died in Scotland Co 1 November 1942.  The 
TUNSTALLS are buried in King Cemetery in Laurel Hill,NC.
    There seem to be no burials on the remainder of the PERMENTERs in 
the area.  Did all the PERMENTERS except Margaret Helen [PERMENTER] 
TUNSTALL leave the area for MS or other points?  Would like to hear from 
descendants of John A and Margaret PERMENTER. 
    Thank you for your kindness. Zelia Cline

LAMB / JACOBS / WELLS / QUICK    January 10, 2008
I am trying to piece together my family history.  I basically know very little of them, and would 
like to have some connection to my past.  My grandparents died when I was very young, and I do not 
known my real parents very well.  I found some good information so far on the web, but I am stuck.  
I know that almost all my family came together in Richmond Co. (later Scotland) in the early 1900's.  
I am specifically looking for information on Abram LAMB and Margaret (Maggie) JACOBS, my great-great 
grandparents, who lived in Scotland Co and were born between 1860 and 1880.  I know they are related 
b/c the 1910 census has them listed as the parents of my great-grandmother, Delphina Lamb.  I am also 
looking for info on my grandfathers side.  I believe his parents were Roger WELLS and Martha QUICK, 
who were born in Marlboro Co around the turn of the century.  However, I can find little to no info 
on them. 

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.  I want to come to that area and do some research 
myself, but I live all the way in California.  I haven't had much luck at all on GenWeb or anywhere else.
Thanks, Alex Hunsucker, California
