About Searching For Family
Welcome to my search for my ancestors. The names on these pages lived in and  around the area of Chatham, Durham, Orange and Wake Counties North Carolina. Their lives were, for the most part, centered around farming. Arriving in the area in the middle 1700s, growing crops and raising large families. Religious beliefs played a large role in their lives and many will be found among the rolls of Baptist church members.

They were not military oriented, but did serve in many of the wars of our country.  You will not find any notes on these pages, but should you like more information, or like to know sources, please contact me. Gladly share what I have and I do enjoy hearing from others who are researching in the same area.

Take a few minutes and go look at the albums that are located in photos. You will see marriages and death records and obits from newspapers. If you have items that connect and you would like to share I will gladly put them in this area.
