Hi Brittany,

I hope this helps!

North Carolina has numerous people who have become very well-known for their contributions, from Colonial times to the present day -- and some are even considered "famous"!  

You might want to visit the NCpedia page for biographies by profession to help you get started by selecting individual professions.  Here the link  You can also access the same page from the "Biography & People" pull-down menu at the top of the page.

Good luck with your project!

Im looking for a McCabe man that would have lived in new York and possibility had a gold mine. Then took paddle boat down to Franklin county Arkansas around 1800's.
Thanks for any help

Dear Cindy,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia and taking a minute to ask your question.

We do not have any specific information that might help you with this question since we focus primarily on North Carolina history and historical collections.  You may want to contact your public library for help locating information to help with this.  If this question relates to genealogy, you may also want to consider contacting libraries with genealogy collections in the states where you believe he lived.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes,

Kelly Agan

I would just want to thank you this really educated website.


Re the information I sent yesterday, 5/25/13, regarding a set of Histories of Regiments and Battalions from NC in the Great Civil War of 1861 - 65. On the inside of the cover of Vol. IV, there is a name ... Chas. M. Stedman. Perhaps this may help in the identification of this five volume set. Thank you for any information you may have about these books.
