Description

Essentially a continuation of Wheeler’s Historical Sketches of North Carolina from 1584 to 1851, this scarce work contains extensive genealogies of over sixty-five eminent families, with reminiscences of their times and additional biographical and historical material. Once again, chapters are arranged by counties in alphabetical order, with sixty-two of the early counties treated, largely from the viewpoint of family history. Further information is given in two separate articles by other authors: “North Carolina in the Colonial Period,” by Daniel R. Goodloe; and “Early German Settlers in Eastern Cabarrus County,” by Gen. Rufus Barringer.

The principal North Carolina families treated by Col. Wheeler are: Alexander, Ashe, Avery, Barringer, Barnett, Battle, Blount, Bragg, Brevard, Brickell, Carson, Caswell, Clark, Clinch, Cotton, Craighead, Crowell, Davidson, Davis, Donnel, Dudley, Forney, Gaston, Graham, Hawkins, Haywood, Henderson, Hill, Iredell, Johnston, Jones, Lillington, Locke, Lowrie, McDowell, Mebane, Montgomery, Moore, Morehead, Morrison, Nash, Osborne, Pearson, Pettigrew, Phifer, Polk, Ruffin, Saunders, Settle, Sheppard, Shepperd, Shipp, Slocumb, Spaight, Stanley, Steele, Stokes, Strange, Taylor, Turner, Williams, Williamson, Wright, Wynns, and Yancey.
