These queries are from the query page for C and D surnames, that were previously posted to the first query system for NC in the Revolutionary War. Since many are over a year old, the email addresses may no longer be correct. If one of these is your query, then feel free to repost it with the correct email address. If you are interested in contacting someone whose address is not valid, post a query asking they contact you as a NEW response to this message. I do not have any more current addresses.

Many of my CAMP ancestors were from Cleveland County. There is a house
that I was shown in Cleveland County in 1995 that is supposed to be the
Joseph CAMP house from the Rev. War era. I was told he furnished supplies
to Gen. ROGERS during the battle of Cowpens and Kings Mtn. and had at least
two sons to fight there. Can anyone confirm this. If so which sons?

Wish to identify parents and family of Stephen COLLINS born 9 April

he moved to Maury Co., TN where his daughter Sarah, born in NC, married
William D. Hamlett. He also had a daughter Anna who married a Hinds and
lived in Maury Co.,TN. Is it possible that he is the Stephen listed in
the 1790 census of Moore Co., NC, in the household of Henrietta Collins?

I am interested in any information on the life and times of Sugar DULIN.
He was born in Onslow Co., NC Apr 23 1863. He served in the Revolution
and, apparently, was quite a colorful figure. I am specifically looking
for the name of his wife. I can't seem to find it anywhere. All of the
other researchers that I have contacted about the DULINs are lacking the
same information. I would be grateful for any help.
