New Cemetery Added: Rufus McNair Cemetery

Taneya | April 10, 2010 | COMMENTS:No Comments »

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.

New Biographies Page added

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.

Index to Guardianship Records

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.
