The research involved in the compilation of the data stated herein included visits to many relatives in Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina, where copies were made of en- tries in family Bibles and of tombstone inscriptions. Cor- respondence over a long period of time with various members of the family throughout several states was also necessary. Courthouse officials at numerous locations were contacted by mail and certified copies secured of old wills, deeds, marriage licenses, etc. Several visits were made to the libraries at Duke University, Durham, North Carolina, and the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, North Caro- lina. Much time was spent in the North Carolina State Archives and History Department and the North Carolina State Library at Raleigh, North Carolina.
A person who has not performed a similar task would find it difficult to believe that so much time and labor are involved in compiling the data stated herein. The material must be collected from widely scattered sources and brought into true relationship by most careful considera- tion of time and circumstances. In some cases the determina- tion of a single date required pursuit through many volumes, pamphlets, microfilm and other records, which took many days to complete. The writer has devoted some time to this work for a long period, and much time since his retirement five years ago.
After the research was completed and compiled, it was checked and reviewed many times before releasing for publica- tion. Even now some errors may be found, but no stone has been left unturned to arrive at the facts. Sometimes, however, the records were not clear enough to be "positively certain."
In these cases the writer has used such phrases as "thought to be," "probably," and "likely" to avoid a misleading state- ment.
Appreciation is expressed here to various members of the family who were contacted by the writer, all of whom co- operated wholeheartedly in furnishing information regarding themselves and their immediate families. The writer is much indebted to his cousin, Dudley W. Bagley, for counsel during the years he has worked on this history; also for assistance in defraying the cost of publishing this document.
He also wishes to express his appreciation for the courteous response to his many requests for the use of various publications and records, under their care, by Miss Mattie
Russell, in charge of the Manuscript Room at Duke University Library; Mrs. Mary J. Rogers, in charge of the Search Room at the North Carolina State Archives and History Department; and, in particular, by Mrs. Margaret Price, in charge of the Genealogical Section of the North Carolina State Library.
