Richmond County, North Carolina 1779-1899
As I searched original records at North Carolina Department of Archives and History for
any clue to the parentage of my ancestor, Daniel W. Campbell, I came across many
accounts of others whose family trees are also firmly rooted in Richmond County.
This book has been compiled and written to make public certain records likely to assist
in the advancement of genealogical research. Most records are abstracted from a variety
of legal settings (e.g. court records, estate settlements, school records, wills, tax,
land, marriage, and cemetery records, etc.) Included also are photographs, maps, and personal
letters. All records are arranged in chronological order (when possible, depending on the
placement of certain graphics)to aid in identifying individuals in relation to a
specific time and place.
Copies of original documents such as newspaper clippings, letters, etc. have been
'computer cleaned' in an attempt to present interesting legible graphics, while
taking care to maintain the integrity of each copy. The original use of capitalization
has been retained with minor punctuation added for clarity.
"Our Native Heath" contains 400 pages with 60 pages devoted to a comprehensive index
of almost 10,000 individual names. Please keep in mind that ancient writers seldom
used punctuation and many times the name of the same person was spelled several
