HERBIN LINEAGE

THE HERBINS HAVE LIVED IN ROCKINGHAM AND GUILFORD COUNTIES AT LEAST SINCE THE 1780'S AND PROBABLY MANY YEARS BEFORE THAT. I CAN TRACE MY DIRECT LINEAGE DIRECTLY TO AN ANCESTOR BORN IN 1813,BUT AM UNABLE TO VERIFY THAT HIS FATHER WAS JOHN HERBIN OF ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, NC. IT IS INTERESTIN TO NOTE THAT THERE ARE A COMBINATION OF JOHN AND WILLIAM HERBINS IN BOTH THE 1790 US CENSUS RECORDS IN ROCKINGHAM CO. NC AND CHESTER CO. SC. ANY INFORMATION CONCERNING A POSSIBLE CONNECTION WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

This is inreply to Michael. We also found Herbins in the Census. Was the Herbins of this time slaves and if so was the owners name Herbin? Other possibilities could be of marriage to a Frenchman. I've have been told that there are possible conections to France. How? We are very interested in this info. Our family migrated from France in the early 1900's.

Michael,
I have found a cemetery of sorts with the headstones of James Madison HERBIN and John HERBIN. Both were born in the 1830's, and James fought and died in the Civil War. Are these relatives of yours? There are also about 12 fieldstones marking the graves of other people buried here. I live less than a mile awayand would be willing to keep this cemetery up if I was given permission by living decendants. Please let me know one way or another. Thanks.

Robin,
I do not know if these Herbins are any relation to me, but I would be interested in knowing the location of the cemetary in question. Is it in Rockingham County, NC? If it is I would like to know. Thanks.

Cathy,
The Herbins in question were not slaves and were living here in the 1760 colonial census. I do not know how they arrived here or if they were French huggenotts or they immigrated from Nova Scotia. Any information that could be given me would be greatly appreciated.

Michael, Thanks for the reply. My Dad has been doing geneology for about 10 years. His family migrated here from northern France in the late 1800's. They come from Northern France in the Lens area. The name is very rare. When ever we find it we can trace it back to the same area in France. We were quite surprised when living in Raleigh, NC for a year that the name appeared there. Soon we discovered that there was a large population of Herbins in Greensboro. My Dad talked to a elderly gentleman who new very little heritage. We found it quite interesting that the common mens names were still included with these Herbins. Some of these are Raymond and Louis. The Herbins in Nova Scotia came to Canada in the early 1800's. They have a jewelry store. We visited them about 5 years ago. The son was very interested in us, but he was sick with cancer. Their great Grandfather was one of the first imigrants to that area. The family has even put up a historical area in honor of the acadians. These were the French that the British drove from the area. Thus the US got New Orleans! It was very interesting. We laughed because they said we couldn't be related but my dad believes they came from our heritage. By the way he has traced our family back to the early 1700's. We also have found a name of a Herbin in a fort in Mackinaw City Michigan. This Herbin was a French commander at the fort. There is no other info though. The British also became involved here. We wonder if he went down Lake Michigan and farther south. We also had the pleasure to take my father to France to a city called Heron near the Belgium border. Here there is another jewelry store with the Herbin name on it. They also told us we were not related. Ha Ha must be a family trait. We also think they follow our heritage. So as you can see we have been searching out our name. That is why we have been so curious about the Herbins in North Carolina. We wondered were they came from and if they were related. Hopefully we can pass info to each other. If I can be of any help let me know. I will try to answer any questions. By the way our family resides in Michigan. Thanks Cathy

I was visiting a friend in New York City one time and decided to look up any Herbins in the Manhattan phone book. I found one and went to visit him. He quickly informed me that we were not related and told me that his grandparents had immigrated from Russia in the early 1900's. When I asked him how any Herbins could have been in Russia, he claimed that a grandfather had been left behind by Napoleon's army in 1815. So you see that I haven't had any luck in finding any relations either. As I mentioned in an earlier posting, my family has been at this location since the1760 colonial census, but I am unable to trace them back any farther. Thanks for the reply.

Michael, Do you have a name of the person from the 1760's. Maybe we can compare it to the information my dad has from France. It is a long shot, but who knows. Do not expect a response to soon. It is hunting season in Michigan and my dad is in the woods often till Christmas. If you reply before Thanksgiving, I may be able to dig into some of his stuff then. You see we live 2 hours south of him so we do not get up there as often as we would like. Have a nice Thanksgiving...Cathy

Cathy,
Their names were John and William Herbin. They are listed in the North Carolina Colonial Census, I believe one of these to be my ancestor, I have been unable to verify which and if they are brothers or father and son. A William Herbin served as a private in the Revolutionary War. If you can verify whom these two Herbins are, I would appreciate it very much.
