Re: Cumberland Co., NC Research surnames in co?


I am searching in Cumberland too. I had a aunt named Anne/Annie Melvin (do not know who her parents are) she was born in 1910 married a David McLeod (marriage date unknown). I also have a aunt Lela Patterson who married a Sammuel/Sam Williams in 1920 in Fayetteville.

While checking the 1870 census I came across a Violet Melvin born abt 1825 married to a Benjamin Melvin born abt 1823 in the township of McDaniels in Sampson County. I did not see a John Melvin on the census with them. (but this does not mean he was not there.)

Can you tell me if you know of a cemetary named McAllister cemetary in Wade, NC? My grandfather is buried there.

I will contact the Register of Deeds for Cumberland County to see if they will send me copies of death/birth/marriage certficates. Thank you for this information.
