SWLibrarian on “Capps in Hyde County”

Looking for substantive information about the family of Thomas Capps born in the first quarter of 18th century, possibly in North Carolina, but he may have been the immigrant. I am looking for documentation of land, children, spouse. A person with this name is on the 1775-76 Bute County oath of allegiance list and on the 1790 NC Census in Hyde County, next to Richard Capps.

d6echick on “Any information on Nona (Noner) Anderson”

This was my grandmother and I am trying to do a family tree. She is lived in Kenansville NC, Duplin County. She was married to Stephen Summerlin. Any information on either grandparent would be helpful.




Judy Culbertson on “Meadows Family”

Since this is a 2 yr. old email, hope this gets to you. I have an ancestor, Daniel Meadows, born in Georgia in 1782. Names of parents, who came from N.C. unknown. Supposedly, Meadows family was Scotch-Irish, who came first to Virgiia. After N.C., they settled in Burke Co. Georgia (a burned co.). They were also in adjoining co. of Jefferson Co. Georgia. They are not from the same family as Daniel Meadows of Granville, who came to Ga. about the same time and settled in Greene Co. Georgia. Family name of James was repeated often. His son was James Randall Meadows. Could your Jacob have been in Ga. before 1782 when Daniel was born? A census states that Daniel was definitely born in Ga. in 1782– so Dad would have had to have been there by then, I would think.
