North Carolina Carrolls, 1600s-1850


This work is meant to assist research on North Carolina Carrolls; however, the text and index contain hundreds of associated names, making it a valuable resource for locating ancestral names as well. Information in this book is recorded as found on records in the National Archives, state archives, the Library of Congress, and nearly every courthouse in North Carolina. Entries are followed by a list of sources, and individual indices to states, North Carolina counties and full names. This work opens with some miscellaneous facts about North Carolina and a brief discussion of Irish roots, followed by “Passengers to the New World: Emigrant Lists and Land Patents.” “Revolutionary War Pensioners of US for 1776 and 1813/14: Applicants and Prisoners, and Military Land Grants and Warrants [Not a complete list]” and an “Index to 1812 North Carolina Soldiers” are both organized by state with entries arranged alphabetically. Brief lists are provided for: Civil War soldiers, 1790 taxpayers in North Carolina districts, marriages of unknown origin (1806–1888), and an index to Welborn’s North Carolina Tombstone Records. A brief history of North Carolina precedes the bulk of the book, “Carrolls in North Carolina Counties.” Entries are organized by county and arranged chronologically. Entries vary considerably in length; some list date, full name, and source of information, while others may provide vital data, name of spouse, names of relatives and/or others, lists of children, deeds, wills, military experience, occupation, and/or other items of biographical information.
