Union County NC Genealogies and Histories #northcarolinapioneers

Union County, NC Wills and Estates


Union County Golf CourseUnion County was formed in 1842 from parts of Anson and Mecklenburg Counties.

The county seat is Monroe. The first three will books are digitized here. Thus, the earliest surviving records begin in 1842. As reflected in the microfilming of old wills by the Secretary of the State of North Carolina, the ink on some wills was far too faded to read.

Among the early settlers wete the families of Marsh, MccCain, Phifer, Craig and Stewart.

The Good Influence of German Immigrants #genealogy #history #northcarolinapioneers


The Influence of German Immigrants 

colonial firesideWhereever you look in the American past, the Germans have left a good influence. From the earliest immigration days, they worked hard on their farms and lived frugally. After suffering in the old country with poor soil, the search was on for good fertile land to plow. The Germans knew that a heavy forest growth produced rich soil and chopped their homesteads out of dense woods. And while the American farmer, in his haste to live well, mined the fertility out of the soil, the German conserved it by rotating crops and feeding live stock. In caring for his domestic animals, he set an example. This successful method was learned at local county agricultural fairs. Actually, the capacious red barns of the middle West trace their ancestry back to the big barn in which the Pennsylvania "Dutchman" provided at a time when most farmers left allowed their stock to run unsheltered. And, while good German music spread across the plain, the Germans helped to influence a conservative approach to agriculture.

Finding Elusive Information on Ancestors #northcarolinapioneers #genealogy

From New Hampshire to North Carolina 

Southern PinesR. M. Couch, a resident of Southern Pines for eight years, left his home in New Hampshire upon the advice of his physician. " Within five years there have been planted in this immediate section 1500 acres in fruit, and in order that your readers may have the advantage of direct correspondence with any or all the growers of fruit, I will give the names from memory: C. J. Eaglesfield was the pioneer on a small scale; S. N. Whipple, extensive peach, plum, grape and nut farm; Van Lindly Orchard Co., 350 acres peach, pear, plum and blackberry; Niagara Grape Co., 107 acres in grapes; Southern Pines Fruit-Growing Co., eighty acres in grapes; Benjamin Douglas, Jr., of Orange, N. J.; Tarbell & Carlton, H. P. Bilyeu, Dr. C. W. Weaver, C. D. Tarbell, Thomas Carlton, Fred Oberhouserheur, James H. Murray, S. W. Thomas, Charles H. Thompson, Edwin Newton, Doctors Boynton, Stevens and R. M. Couch, Rev. A. A. Newhall, B. Van Herff, J. T. Wilson, Dr. W. P. Swett, H. P. Stebbins, J. A. Morriss, R. S. Marks, L. S. Johnson, C. C. Mitchell, John Huttonhomer, F. J. Folley, Rev. J. W. Johnston, Mrs. L. A. Raymond, Mrs. Louisa Young, P. Pond, Fred Dixon and others. There were shipped from this point last season 150 tons, being the first bearing year of the oldest vineyards of much size. The bearing vineyards and orchards the coming season will more than double the shipments, and in two years all the vineyard trees mentioned will come to bearing. The prices in Washington and New York last July were six and seven cents per pound for black grapes, and thirteen and fourteen cents per pound for Delaware and Niagara, and $3.50 to $4.50 per bushel crate for peaches and plums. The demand was as good at the close of the season as at first. Write to Dr. C. W. Weaver, S. N. Whipple, H. P. Bilyeu, C. D. Tarbell, C. B. Mabore for prices obtained for their own shipments. Dr. Weaver realized from three acres of his best Delaware grapes $150 per acre net. Southern Pines is a town eight years old, in the midst of the turpentine region of North Carolina, sixty-eight miles southwest from Raleigh, on the Raleigh & Augusta Railroad (part of the Seaboard Air Line), fifteen hours from New York, and is six hundred feet above sea level, the highest point in the whole turpentine belt. The soil is a sandy loam and has a perfect drainage. Malaria is unknown. The presence of the long-leafed pine in large quantities causes the generation of ozone to such a degree as to make this locality almost a specific for throat and lung difficulties. Many physicians and a large number of the cured and benefited testify to its wonderful effects. The town is filled mainly with Northern people, and has four hotels, a good school, and church services every Sabbath. There are three stores, and railroad, telegraph and express offices. There are many fine residences and a large hotel 300 feet long and four stories is being built with modern improvements." more
