Update on North Carolina Ancestral Story

Doing a Happy Dance!!! Although I don't have a blog I've been able to update the story "A Dicken's Tale - Art Thomas' N. Carolina Ancestry" found on my website. Art's Families & Other Folk

This story follows one of my North Carolina ancestral line with some documents & photos from the 1860 Census Slave Schedule thru the death of my father in 1945 when I was 11 y/o. I have of late been updating this 2009 story from online accounts from newspapers, particularly the Indianapolis Recorder, using the social columns from Greencastle, Indiana (1900-1955).

I've also had recent success in finding additional documentation of the "facts" to the story on in North Carolina Vital & Probate Records for Edgecombe County, as well as the North Carolina record sets found on So, I'm sharing the update to my "story" here with the AfriGeneas family.

Note: Although most of this information was located online from my home in Ohio nothing takes the place of the research that can be done at the local levels.
