    1. [NCSCOTLA] PATTERSON family cemetery -- help
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: fiddler114 Surnames: PATTERSON, BALDWIN Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/localities.northam.usa.states.northcarolina.counties.scotland/262/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I am trying to locate the Gilbert PATTERSON family cemetery which was surveyed by the Historical Records Survey of North Carolina 1938. The location of this cemetery is recorded in the survey as Maxton, Scotland County, NC. This, however, is a little confusing, as most maps indicate that Maxton is in Robeson County. The directions on the 1938 survey are as follows: "leaving Maxton on the old Maxton-John's road out by Presbyterian Junior College for 2 1/2 miles, turn right at cross-roads, cross A.C.L. R.R. and go 1/4 mile further, cemetery is in big open field about 1/10 mile from highway." Burials listed in the 1938 survey: Baldwin, W. D. d. 1891 Patterson, Anna d. 1889 Patterson, Charles Calhoun d. 1910 Patterson, Gilbert d. 1883 Patterson, Malloy d. 1902 Patterson, Margaret Ann d. 1868 Patterson, Victoria d. 1912 Patterson, William d. 1886 Ray, Thomas Julius d. 1897 Yesterday (June 2014) I followed John's Road out of Maxton, Robeson County, until it suddenly became Old Maxton Road as I crossed into Scotland County. The crossroads that seemed to come close to but not exceed the 2.5 miles indicated in the 1938 directions above was the intersection of Old Maxton Road and Patterson Road (when I went further, to where Stewartsville Cemetery Road intersected Old Maxton Road, the mileage was closer to 3.5 miles). I followed Patterson Road until it ended at Rocky Fork Road in front of a large feed plant, and I still hadn't crossed any railroad tracks. There were railroad tracks if I turned right on Rocky Fork Road, however, and I could see the Scottish Heritage cemetery across the intersection. Although I found some Pattersons buried in this cemetery, they were not the ones listed above. Any help would be appreciated :o) Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

    1. [NCSCOTLA] Coroner Reports, 1938
    2. David Hudelson
    3. I'm new to this list, and researching Edward Rodman Hudelson, who was killed 12 Nov 1938 in a truck accident. According to a Greensboro NC newspaper, a Scotland County Coroner's Report pronounced that the accident occurred because of Hudelson's negligence. Does anybody know I can obtain a copy of the coroner's report?

    3. Hello Mary and all, Many thanks to Mary Modlin for the email today with further information about the Smyrna Presbyterian Church. I have now written to Sam West re the family I am tracing, and hope for a reply. I don't know how to contact Blake Tyner - perhaps Mary or someone on the list does. I am interested in Rev. James Hall Sinclair, who was minister of Smyrna Presbyterian Church in Johns from 1857 to 1861 when he enlisted in the war. In particular, I am trying to trace his descendants from his first marriage, most notably two of his sons, James John Sinclair and Alexander Sinclair. James John Sinclair also served in the war; was taken prisoner and sent to New York; then returned to N.C. where he was "paroled" in 1865 (whatever that means). I'm assuming he was discharged at that time. I can find nothing more about him, or his brother Alexander after the 1870 census of Lumberton. Mary if you, or anyone else, have come across these two Sinclair brothers, I should be very interested to hear what the information is. I subscribe to Ancestry and have searched census records every way that I could think of, not just N.C. but the whole country, as well as early N.C. marriage records, and have not ben able to find more about them. Nothing has turned up on the findagrave site, either. Thanks again, Mary, for your helpful and thorough emails. George Sanborn Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada

    3. George, You're quite welcome. From now looking at the picture of the historical marker on Find A Grave, I see I was wrong about the year the church building was moved. So it wasn't quite as long ago as my memory was telling me. I also found something on Google books for you. There's a picture of the church at its old location on page 51 of an Images of America book on Scotland County that was published by John and Sara Stewart. Google has a preview of some of the book's pages, so you're in luck! http://books.google.com/books?id=uXcBFupcJwUC&printsec=frontcover#v=onepage& q&f=false Sam West is an excellent resource for Robeson County. Blake Tyner is another good one there. Although I now live far away, I grew up in the area and will be glad to help you in any way I can. If you'd like, you may contact me directly. And, since I've done quite a bit of research in that part of the county, I'll keep an eye out for anything I may have that might be of interest to you. Mary

    3. Hello Mary, Thank you so much for your detailed reply to my query about Smyrna Presbyterian Church. I very much appreciate your thorough reply and very helpful information. I have just looked at the findagrave reference that you provided, and will contact the Presbyterian Heritage Center in Montreat. Someone else suggested I contact a Sam West in Lumberton who is knowledgeable about Robeson County families, so I'll try to contact him, too. And I will check out the other suggestions that you made. Many thanks again for your excellent reply. Best wishes, George Sanborn Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada

    3. Hi Folks, I am a new subscriber and hope that someone can tell me exactly where the Smyrna Presbyterian Church is located. I've been searching online for days for some history of it, with a map or something to show where it is, and have found almost nothing. Some years ago I seem to recall a series of history books being published of all the counties in N.C. Is there one for Scotland County? Perhaps it would have a description of the church and its location. Are there any surviving church records for this church? The husband of one of my relatives was an early minister there, Rev. James Hall Sinclair. Thanks for reading this, George Sanborn Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Canada

    3. The Smyrna Presbyterian Church building itself was relocated about 40-50 years ago and is now Faith Presbyterian Church, located not too far south of Saint Andrews Presbyterian University, on Elm Avenue in Laurinburg. The church's cemetery remains in the old location and lies on Smyrna Church Road in Johns. Google Maps has a street view of the church building. http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=2186480&CScn=Smyrna&CS cntry=4&CSst=29&CScnty=1733& I can't say for certain but I would expect any records to now be at the Presbyterian Heritage Center in Montreat. Perhaps someone on the list knows more than I do. You might look for histories of the Fayetteville Presbytery to see if any of them contain anything about the old church or about Rev. Sinclair. Ruth Jane Trivette published The Merging of the Gaels and Legacy of the Committed would be among those histories. http://www.phcmontreat.org/ Prior to 1899, Scotland County did not exist and was part of Richmond County. Joyce Gibson published Scotland County Emerging which covers the formation and early days of the new county. The county government's website contains a page with the county's history, written by Betty Myers. Myrtle Bridges has published multiple books on Richmond County, which contain records from the period when Scotland County was part of Richmond. Many of my maternal ancestors were among the founders and early members of Smyrna. Some of them straddled the line with Robeson County and old records are sometimes in either Richmond or Robeson counties. Mary Modlin

That is the correct James E. Clark. The name is transcribed wrong and the "B" looks like "le". His wife was Emma, once again transposed wrong, so you are on the right track. I am heading down to Fayetteville next week and plan to do some looking around to see if I can find his headstone.
