Dear Don,

Thanks for visiting NCpedia and taking a minute to share your connection to North Carolina history and ask your question.

Unfortunately, we do not have any information on Levi Wade in NCpedia. If you're interested in researching your family or local Cumberland County history, here are a few places to help you get started.  

The Government & Heritage Library here at the State Library of North Carolina has county history and genealogical collections.  You may contact our research librarians by telephone, email, or by coming to the library in Raleigh in person.  You'll find our contact information at this link http://statelibrary.ncdcr.gov/contact.html.  The Cumberland County Public Library has local, state, and genealogical collections. You may contact them by telephone or email or by visiting them in person as well. Their contact information can be found at http://www.cumberland.lib.nc.us/ccplsite/content/local-state-history.

Re the information I sent yesterday, 5/25/13, regarding a set of Histories of Regiments and Battalions from NC in the Great Civil War of 1861 - 65. On the inside of the cover of Vol. IV, there is a name ... Chas. M. Stedman. Perhaps this may help in the identification of this five volume set. Thank you for any information you may have about these books.

Thank you for using NCpedia. Unfortunately, we do not provide information regarding book apprasial here at NCpedia. You may want to contact a book dealer as a starting point for your research. Here is a link to the WorldCat entry for Histories of the several regiments and battalions from North Carolina, in the great war 1861-'65, which provides information about the availablity of this book. I hope this information helps. If you need further help, please feel free to contact me via email at emily.horton@ncdcr.gov or Reference Services at slnc.reference@ncdcr.gov.

In reference to 'The Histories of the Several Regiments and Battalions from North Carolina in the Great War of 1861 - 65' mentioned in previous emails, I have this set of books Volumes I through V. They were given to me by my Father when I lived in Greensboro many years ago. I would very much appreciate hearing from anyone who has knowledge of their availability and/or value.
Many thanks for your time and response ...

You are getting better.
Now that you have entries for John Hosea Kerr and John Hosea Kerr,jr, how about an aritcle about Mrs.John Hosea Kerr.jr??You have articles BY her,
Mary Hinton Duke Kerr.She was quite a historian in her own right.

Great suggestions. While we had the other two articles ready and with permission to publish from UNC Press's Dictionary of North Carolina Biography, we do not have articles for Mrs. John Hosea Kerr, Jr. or Mary HInton Duke Kerr. We will put them on our list of articles to be written. Thanks for the feedback!

Now that you have an article about the Caswell County Kerrs,how about the John Hosea Kerrs Sr,Jr and 3rd of Warrenton?

The woods are full of Kerrs,it seems.
