Welcome back! Any Holiday time always seems a time for family, tinged with sadness for the memories of all those who are no longer here to celebrate it with us, and yet flooded with hope as we watch all the young ones, the babies, the children and the teenagers, that do get together when the adults do. A sense of FAMILY as being important is the bedrock of being a genealogist. We are curious about not only all the family members that are alive, but also about the ones that are gone, and the ones that are long gone. The ones that nobody alive knew!
Their genes are still a part of us and may have influenced the way we have lived our lives. All of us have the stories of our family traits that we think may have come from our ancestors. [Ray never liked large numbers of people in an informal setting, milling around loose. He used to say they were scattering willy-nilly like falling leaves tossed about by an autumn wind. If there were more than ten people in the room, being an army man; he either wanted them standing in formation or sitting in classroom style. A cocktail party was pure torture to him. He was not fond of weddings or funerals. He said they made him feel uncomfortable; because the people appeared to have little purpose or direction, but to talk to each other. Ray, who was goal oriented and could achieve anything he put his mind to; again primarily from his army training, could not conceive of doing nothing for two hours while standing or sitting around drinking and talking. Business networking was not his idea of working. Luckily, we agreed with that premise, although I was more comfortable chatting with others than he was.
Lo and behold, as we did his genealogy, we found an ancestor who left New England in the early 1630s, climbed into a boat with his family and set out for points south because as this ancestor explained as he wrote in his journal, something close to this: We must move on. It is so crowded in Plymouth Colony. Why, there must be over 200 souls in ye colony now! So he and his family boated down to what was to become North Carolina. They proceeded to have more than a dozen children in Pasquotank and Perquimans Counties. I guess that is how North Carolina became too crowded!
Here are some books on North Carolina. These are not all we have on NC, but it is a start!
YOGS CRAZY CRATE 43: BOOK 2: CAROLINA CRADLE: SETTLEMENT OF THE NORTHWEST CAROLINA FRONTIER 1747-1762. By Robert W. Ramsey. Published by the University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, NC, ©1964. 251 pages, softbound, coated covers. indexed, used. "Dr. Ramsey, in this admirable book, has shown great pertinacity and ingenuity in tracing the movement of groups into new frontier lands, with the Yadkin [River] as a kind of Jordan. This is a thorough and elegant piece of research." [Times Literary Supplement review quoted above.] This account of the settlement of one segment of the NC frontier-the land between the Yadkin and the Catawba rivers-examines the process by which the Piedmont South was populated. Through his ingenious use of hundreds of sources and documents, Robert Ramsey traces the movement of the original settlers and their families from the time they stepped onto American shores to their final settlement in the northwest Carolina territory. He considers the economic, religious, social and geographical influences that led the settlers to Rowan County and describes how this frontier community was organized and supervised. Dr. Ramsey was a Professor of History at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. This book contains the following chapters: The Maryland-Pennsylvania Piedmont; Origins of settlers on the northeast Carolina frontier, indicating the counties of settled Maryland, 1740; Original townships along the Susquehanna River, Lancaster County, 1729; The townships of Lancaster and Chester counties, 1740; The Bryan settlement 1747-48; The Irish settlement 1747-49; The Davidson's Creek settlement, 1748-51; the Fourth Creek settlement, 1750-62; The Davidson's Creek settlement, 1752-62; Original land grants in the Irish and Trading Camp settlements, 1747-1762; Presbyterian congregations, 1698-1730 and early German Churches in PA; The Beverly and Borden grants 1736-39; and the Town land of Salisbury. Indexed. This book has a shiny cover and yellow highlighting throughout which does not obscure the print. PRICE: $18 SALE PRICE $16
YOGS CRAZY CRATE 43: BOOK 5: TRYON COUNTY, NC, INDEX TO LAND SURVEYS. By Miles S. Philbeck, ©1987, This book has no numbered pages, [I am sure there are more than 100.], 8.5 by 11 inches, bound on the 8.5 inch side, stapled and taped, used. This is a computer-generated combined index to grantees and chain bearers/chain carriers, [NOTE: Chain bearers are the men who served as surveyors' assistants and literally carried the chain which had 100 links each 7.92 inches long for a total of 66 feet. 10 square chains equals one acre.] [[Did you just learn something today? It is always a good thing to learn at least one new thing a day!]] The index also has the names of the waterways which drain the land even if the land does not touch the waterway. They are mentioned in the first section [30+] pages of the original records. The first three pages explain the political turmoil of this area and a bibliography of references is appended. The following pages show a computer-generated list of file numbers from 1 to over 1800 running from grant dates of 1768 to 1800+ which is a replica of the original land survey index. The index that follows the first is actually an index to that first index of every grantee and chainbearer plus the name of the waterway that drains that land. There are four columns in this every-name index. The first column is the aforementioned file number-the Tryon packet number in the NC Land Grant Office, which is the same as the file number in the collection of the copies of these records held by the Genealogical Society of Old Tryon County. Column A refers back to the master listing which is filed chronologically by year and precedes this last index listing.
Column B is the duplicate packet or file number for those records which have duplicate files. Column C is alphabetical and holds the name of the grantee or chainbearer and waterway. If the name in Column C is of a person who received a land grant, then column D has the year of the grant. Since this last part has probably over 70 pages, 2 columns on each, there are a lot of people's names in this book! For each grant three names are listed-the grantee, the first chainbearer, the second chainbearer. The last column includes the waterway. From the map on the cover, it would appear that some or all of the following NC counties could have been a part of Tryon-Lincoln, Gaston, Cleveland, Rutherford and Polk. Also pictured are the following counties which later became a part of South Carolina-Greenville, Spartanburg, Cherokee, York, Laurens, Union, and Chester. The Handy Book for Genealogists, Yenth Edition says Tryon was created in 1768 out of Mecklenburg. Tryon County was discontinued in 1779 and the North Carolina part was absorbed by Lincoln and Rutherford Counties. On June 4, 1772, the boundary between NC and SC was surveyed and a large part of what had been Tryon County earlier became a part of SC instead. Thus, many of the surveys indexed in this volume are, in fact, for land now located in upper South Carolina in the counties mentioned above. The Tryon County deeds however, run from 1768 to 1784 with one being granted in 1789. Sorry, way too many names to index here. PRICE: $25 SALE PRICE $23
YOGS CRAZY CRATE 43: BOOK 6: MARRIAGES OF JOHNSTON COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA 1762-1868. Compiled by Brent H. Holcomb. GPC, 1985, 162 pages, 5.5 by 8.5 inches, hardbound, NEW. Out-of-print. This volume contains abstracts of all 3,946 extant marriage bonds issued in Johnston County, NC from 1762 to 1868, when marriage bonds were discontinued. This book is done in a very small, but thankfully, a very clear typeface. Most pages have 25 to 28 marriage entries on them.
Sample 1). Faircloth, Stephen L. & Penny Gaines, 18 February 1867: W. B. Joyner, bm. [bondsman]; m.[actual date of marriage] 21 Feb 1867 at Simon Gaines, by B. Williams, J.P.
2). Farmer, Turner & Peggy Boyland, 26 Feb 1867; Parrot Creech, bm; 27 Feb 1867 at P. Creech's, by Rev. P. Creech.
3). Bryan, Lucius H. & Elizabeth Ellis, 11 May 1855; m. 13 May 1855 by J. B. Jackson.
The index of 27 pages has three columns of 80 lines each on each page, 240 lines in all per page. The names with many marriages are listed here, but I am not counting how many marriages there are because it would just take too long. These are guesstimates: Adams 60+, Allen 60+, Atkinson 45+, Avera 60+, Bagley 15+, Bail(e)y 40+, Ball(en/in)ger 10+, Barber 75+, Barefoot 15, Barnes 25+, Batten 20+, Beasl(e)y 15, Bell10+, Blackman 30+, Boon 20+, Bridgers 15+, Brown 20+, Bryan 50+, Bulls 15, Byrd 25+. [Sorry, no time even for numbers, but if I list them, trust me, there are over twelve for that surname but are usually many more than that. Also notice the Spelling is erratic to say the least.] Caps/Capps/Capse, Carroll, Carrel/l /Carrol, Carter, Clifton, Coates/Coats, Collins, Creach/Creech, Crocker, Davis, Dodd, Durham, Earp, Eason, Edwards, Eldr(e/i)dge, Ellington, Ellis, Ennis, Evans, Fail, Farmer, Ferrell, Flowers, Garner, Gay, Gerald/Gerrald, Godwin, Green/e, Gulley/Gully, Gurley, Hall, Harper, Harrell, Hatcher, Hayles, Hinnant, Hinton, Hocut, Holland, Holliman, Hollom(a/o)n, Holmes, Holt, Honeycut/t, Hood, Horn, Howell, Ingram, Ivey/Ivy, Jernigan, Johnson-2 full columns, Johnston, Jones-1½ column, Langdon, Lassiter, Lee-1½ col., Lockart, Martin, Massingill, Massey, Massingill, McCullers, Mitchner, Moore, Morgan, Norris/s, Oliver, Oneal/Oneil, Parish, Parker, Parrish, Peacock, Pearce, Peed(e/i)n, Penny, Phillips, Pool, Pope, Powell, Price, Raiford, Rains, Ren(f/t)row Richardson, Roberts, Ryals, Sanders, Sasser, Smith, Snipes, Stallings, Stanly, Stansel/l, Starling, Stephenson, Stevens, Strickland, Talton, Thomas, Thompson, Thornton, Tiner, Tomlinson, Turner, Vinson, Wall, Watkins, Watson, Wellons, Whitley, Wilder, Williams, Wood, Woodall and Woodard.

YOGS CRAZY CRATE 43: BOOK 8: THE SCOTSWOMAN. By Inglis Fletcher. Bobbs-Merrill Co., ©1954, 414 pages, hardbound, used, but in good condition for its age. This book is primarily a work of fiction the author admits in her foreword. She had done historical fiction before but never when the historical figure was the central figure of the book. She felt the standard for this book had to be higher and details the contacts she made, the interviews she conducted and the research she did. As problems with the life of Flora McDonald came to the fore additional research and interviews were required. She went to Scotland and worked with the Reverend Mr. Donald MacKinnon in Edinburgh who helped her figure out the mazes of the intermarriages of the MacDonalds, the MacLeods. the MacKinnons and the MacQueens. These families all lived on the Isle of Skye. The Reverend MacKinnon, who hails from Skye was the best living authority on Flora MacDonald. He was the Editor of the book "The Truth About Flora MacDonald" and was well advanced with the definitive biography of the delightful and heroic Scotswoman. Flora was the saviour of Bonnie Prince Charles Edward Stuart. For a delightful, insightful, highly entertaining story about this Scotswoman, this is the book for you. PRICE $10 SALE PRICE $6
Wow! This crate has been quite a job with so many books that just cry out to be appreciated. It has taken quite a while to finish this one. I know you are busy, but the more you know about what is in print and where to get it, the more fun your genealogy will be! Pat from YOGS
YOGS CRAZY CRATE YOGS45
Hi! I hope you are all keeping warm this winter. We have had a brutally cold winter this year, and in order to keep warm, last year we installed $1,000 worth of new furnace in the computer room and repaired the main heating system to another $1,000, and face a chimney repair of over $350 when it warms up. So please keep these orders coming, or my fingers are going to be too cold to type. I much prefer to be busy because I stay warmer that way!
I would like to take a moment to thank all the nice people that do open my newsletters twice a week and scan them for any books they might not even know are in existence that could help with solving the gigantic puzzle that is the human race. We know that we are all cousins and it is only a matter of finding out to what degree we are that can be so frustrating! But take a look at this hobby or obsession that we have undertaken. It really is good for us. We get to stay inside and work at our computers in the winter time. In the spring we get to take short weekend trips to visit cousins by the dozens and in summer we get to stroll through graveyards looking for stones with names, birth and death dates that may add to what we know about our ancestors. In late summer and fall, it is reunion time and meeting people who have a reason to be friendly - Hey, we're family, aren't we? - and that is a good reason to be friendly! If we are friendly, someone sooner or later may dig out that family Bible we have been looking for, it seems, going on twenty-five years now. [One of mine [Gooldy] was sold at a sale in Monroe County, Indiana, on a cold, snowy blizzard sale date in January of 1853. Worst of all, they only got 50¢ for it! I would love to find it!
Then in winter when it is cold and blustery outside, we can stay inside, warm and cozy, and fire off those letters to get that confirming data we need on wills, birth certificates, death certificates and marriage returns and other court records that let us know that what we found on the Internet does, or does not, have some basis in fact. There are so many things coming up in the online places that can help extend our genealogies, but we need a winter, I guess, so we can settle down and get some proof that those people really existed in that time and that place.
I don't know whether it has happened to you or not, yet, but it has happened to me that I have obtained a death certificate that has on it very little truth! Luckily one elderly aunt told me that she knew her sister had not told the truth when she filled it out! She further explained that I was really stopped on that line because the father had died in a train accident, so THIS sister said, and she could not remember his name at all, but she knew what her sister had written down was not the truth. The newspaper obituary was no help either because it said he died at his daughter's home and there is ample proof he did not, but was in a hospital 100 miles away when he died. Luckily the obituary and the death certificate had so many discrepancies on them that I knew the truth had to be somewhere in between, which it was, but it all goes to prove that you can not be too careful or you might find yourself barking up the wrong family tree!!! And why do this at all, if you are not going to be careful enough to be sure that what you write down is right!
So here are some books to help make you aware of the right way to do this fabulous, entertaining and enlightening hobby which has somehow become so interesting to us!
YOGS CRAZY CRATE YOGS45 BOOK 2: BANKS OF THE WABASH. BY Robert V. Van Trees. [Yes, we are cousins!] Revised 2002. 300 pages, 5 ¼" by 8 ¼", laminated covers. In early November of 1791, Major General Arthur St. Clair led an ill-equipped and untrained army north from Fort Washington [Ohio] against the troublesome Indians of the vast Northwest of the River Ohio Territory (now the states of OH, IN, IL, MI, MN and WI), which had been created by the Ordinance whose Bicentennial milestone was celebrated in 1987. This controversial officer's tragic defeat along the banks of the Wabash River prompted a Congressional investigation [Those aren't new either!] which was the first one ordered in the history of the United States. The dead are victims of a peace process which failed and the characters of this book, many whose mortal remains are mixed with the soil where Fort Recovery now stands, are real people whose sacrifices helped shape the destiny of the westward march of civilization. This book is liberally sprinkled with facts concerning the historic Ordinance of 1787 which were discovered in the author's first book. This book provides factual insight into their trials and tribulations, especially those of General St. Clair, who led hundreds to their deaths. The author at this time was a resident of Fort Recovery. He is a retired U.S.A.F. officer, who devoted much time over a quarter of a century to his study of historical facts concerning the two battles which took place along the Banks of the Wabash River where the author spent the early years of his life. Detailed genealogical research concerning the Swearingen family and Blue Jacket led him to conclude the Shawnee War Chief was NOT a captured white youth named Marmaduke Swearingen, son of John and Cathetrine (Stull) Swearingen. DNA tests conducted at Wright State University in 2000 supported his conclusion. All genealogists with roots in this five state area will want to read and digest the historical facts, the personnel lists, newspaper clippings and detailed index in this book. Bibliography has grown to 78 titles. Index pp. 281 to 300 lists men and units that are buried in Fort Recovery's burial ground. Hundreds of our ancestors were lost in those two bitter battles. Some of them may have been yours! Genealogical charting of the Van Swearingen family is included in this book. Also included are the lists of the Kentucky Militia, over 300 in number, most of whom were killed in action in October and November of 1791. Lots of names in the index. Multiple copies are available. PRICE: $15
YOGS CRAZY CRATE YOGS45 BOOK 4: OHIO GENEALOGICAL RESOURCES. By Charles M. Franklin. Published by YOGS, 1997. 25 pages, wrapper style cardstock covers 8½" by 11". Ray and I asked Charles to do this book, that quickly became a set of books, on the basic sources of genealogical and historical information.

He gives a brief history of the state, some guidance on religion in Ohio, Vital records kept, Census records available and tax lists. He has comments on Probate Records, land and property records, military records, divorce records, and naturalization records. He has an extensive lists of 138 Archives and Libraries, a quick phone call could establish current addresses, if indeed, they have changed at all!
He has a list of over 320 Genealogical and Historical Societies on 8 ½ pages, many of these change addresses yearly with new elections of officers. Check online (website) or by phone (information). A call to the local librarian will get this information almost every time.
A list of over 150 periodicals (almost 6 pages) published by individuals and societies may put you in touch with other relatives that did not move when your ancestors did! Then there is a list of the year of formation of every Ohio County plus its parent county. Addresses and phone numbers are given. (3 pages) They may be dated, but the Post Office will know where the Courthouse is! If you want to get in touch with someone this is a quick guide to use. Multiple copies of this book are available. Special price is $5 for 25 pages of help.
If you like this one, we also have similar ones for Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Multiple copies of each of these books are available.

When you can't find your ancestor who lived in Lewisville, how do you find out what county he lived in? Dozens and dozens of people say they live in Shelbyville. How many states might you have to look in? Your state gazetteer would be a good start. This is the one to look in for Massachusetts counties, cities, towns and villages First printed by the Government Printing Office in Washington in 1894, this copy has thoughtfully been hardbound and is in good shape except for the markings of the library.

Of course if he talked about fishing in the Hill, you might want his doctor to take a look at him, if you didn't know there is a Hill Pond in Woburn, Mass. If he mentioned the Copper Works, don't look for a factory! You need to know that is the name of a village in Norton, TauntonCounty.
