Are there any online resources that would provide that documentation? It will likely be several years or more before I can come down to Elizabeth City.
I'm descended from Joseph Macpherson (m. Mary Taylor) and his father Joseph (m. Charity Gregory). The father supposedly had three brothers - John, Joshua, and Dempsey. Their father may also have been named Joseph (m. Lydia ?), but I am not sure of that.
Thank you for any online resources that may be available.
