My Current Obsession--Hyde County, NC

My Whitney family line lived in an area called Lake Comfort, Hyde, NC. It is associated with Swan Quarter, NC. This is my current obsession. This area is rural, small population now and it has always been that way. Have to wait  a couple of days for a book I ordered to come in.  It is called, "Hyde County History: A Hyde County Bicentennial Project" by the Hyde County Bicentennial Commitee. Curious to see what info I may be able to gather from this book. My 2nd great grand uncle's Civil War Pension file I have found so interesting so far, but now I am thirsting for more information about Swan Quarter, Hyde, NC.  I will keep you posted. Happy Researching, Everyone out there in the Blogosphere.

  2. How wonderful to find the history of an area of your ancestors. I've found some very good information in the Civil War Pension files which led to Confederate Regiments their battle history and even my ancestors names listed. I wish you lots of luck in your search. Thanks for stopping by CITexas Gal and becoming a Follower. I hope you will come again soon.
