Researching many families of Warren, Halifax, Granville, Franklin, Nash and Wake Counties that were living there in the 1800's, both before and after. Remember, please check any of the names I have to verify that they are yours before including them in your family files, and as usual please do me the courtesy of including me as one of your Sources if you use my data. This is a work in progress, and sometimes files change, so check back often for updates.

  • _UID: 2F24EAC840BB7E4DBA58BE55431A7D723CC5
  • Note:
    WILLIAM "BUCK" THOMPSON MEDLIN was the son of MARGARET THOMPSON of Halifax County, North Carolina. She was apparently unmarried when he was born, but married ANDREW MEDLIN in 1869, at which time, WILLIAM began using the MEDLIN surname. MARGARET THOMPSON was the daughter of JOHN THOMPSON & LUCY KING who were married in 1830. I don't know who WILLIAM's father was, but he was apparently was white, since all of he & his mother's family in the early census indicate such, and when he married ELIZABETH MILLS, he started being listed as black or mulatto, along with his wife and children.
    Following are some records for WILLIAM's mother and his step-father, ANDREW MEDLIN, who was from Wake County.
