Need North Carolina Research Resources

Dear Fellow Researchers:

I am writing in hopes that someone can point me in the direction of North Carolina resources. The following is a message that was sent to me in response to a query I have regarding my Samuel (also spelled Samuels) line. The author of this message has given me the go ahead to share this email with you. You will notice a list of names at the in her message, these are the names of some of the slaves as mentioned in her ancestor's will. In another email, she informed me that each of his children received one or two slaves; those children in turn moved to various locations.

If you have any information on resources she can use in North Carolina, please pass them on to me so that I may pass them on to her. One of the slaves may have a connection to my line.

Thank you very much and best wishes with your research. L. Kimbrough

My Samuel family migration seems to be VA>NC>KY>IL>KS and I saw your query about kin in KY. I discovered that my 6th great grandfather, Anthony Samuel, Caswell CO, NC, owned slaves when he died in 1826. Many of the Samuel folk migrated to KY early in the 1800's. Since Anthony's slaves were "distributed" to his descendents, it is possible some of these folks went to KY too. The names I have are Warner, John, Pompey, Judy, Betty and Bridget, Luckey, Lory, George.

I would like to find out more about these people and what happened to them, but am not well versed on African-American research. If you could suggest a place to start for 1826 in NC, I'd like to do some research. If I can be of more help in your research, please let me know.

Thanks, Bonnie
