Matt, James Rouse here. My people came out of the Long Creek area 1820. Enclosed is a land transfer I sent for and it identifies MORGANS Creek and the old Bell branch. I have sent for a Pender Co., road map and am anxiouly awaiting it now, my question is...is this area a populated area or is it just woods now? The reason Im interested the transaction specifically claims the graveyard that is what caught my eye.

Why has the ncgenweb Pender county site copied all of the pages from this site? They shouldn't be allowed to do that! Isn't that against some us copyright laws or something? They should be ashamed of themselves that they can't come up with their own information, that they have to resort to copying someone elses work instead.
Diane & Matt please keep up the excellent work that the 2 of you are doing for this site and all of Pender counties researchers!

P.S. That isn't my real email so that those thieves can't try to contact me too!

You have done quite a job on this, as well as the other counties you handle. I am not actively researching at this time, but am always on the look out for anything new that might come along. Your work is appreciated.
