Jan--his pension records would be too pricey to order. Your other ideas are good ones. I will try those. I am wondering if there are color portraits of his family also. They have his home and stuff on the net, in color. I guess I will have to keep digging.
G.O--you are right about that red hair on my ancestor. If there is someone in Zeb's family with it, it may be a possibility. When I requested information from the NC Archives, I stayed away from asking about a will. They volunteered information that since he died in 1890, there would be no information about slave holdings in his will. I REQUESTED Estate record information. All of his wealth from day 1 would have a accounting of his 'personal property' slaves. Wealth. I think I am getting the run around.
Need to find a historian that wants to talk about this person. Another cousin has said she remembers something about the name. We working on it.
