Re: Wyche Family North Carolina

"James Wyche brought Robert and Gaston's father Norwich with him when he migrated to North Carolina from Virginia in 1825. "

What a proud heritage! The lines descended from Norwich rose to success. I have posted a photo of Rev. Robert Wyche here:

James Wyche bought land in Ohio with intent to free the slaves in his service. When he arrived, he was distraught at the conditions in which former slaves were living and he supposedly felt committed to retain them. It was reported in his obituary that his slaves were treated very well, their family was kept together, and they were all educated.

More about that in the African-American Wyches forum here:
