A new cemetery has been added to the Cemeteries page, the Rufus McNair Cemetery. This African-American cemetery is located on Reno Road and I personally have many relatives buried there, including my 3rd-great-grandparents Rufus Tannahill McNair (for whom the cemetery is named) and his wife, Mariah Wimberly McNair. The page can be found here.
I’ve added a new section to the site today for Biographies that you can find here or use the drop down menu in the sidebar under Records/Data
So far, I’ve added 4 biographies:
- William Stanely Davenport
- William Long Fagan
- Benjamin Foster Halsey
- Diamond Matthew Riddick
I hope to add more soon. If you have biographical information to share about your Washington County ancestors, please do consider contributing to the site.
The NC State Archives offers a number of useful lists of their collections. Among them is a list of Guardianship Records they hold for Washington County.
I’ve linked the PDF file to the Wills & Estates page. Check the list out, perhaps there are surnames you’re researching.
