Do you have any information on the Methodist Pastors that served the area dating back to the 1800s, 1900s, 2000s? I have access to the Trinity UMC History and the Orange UMC History and I'm looking for more that what those two have to offer.

Thank you very much.

What Native American tribes came from craven county and which family name are connected to the tribes, are the Fenner family any connection??


Hi Regina,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia and taking time to share your question. I have also posted this reply to an additional related post you made on NCpedia.

Unfortunately, we do not have any information about specific family names associated with tribes in Craven County.  I have also looked to see if there are any lists of names associated with tribes and do not readily find anything.  However, I can provide a few resources that might help:

  • Here is a link to and NCpedia article that includes a map showing generally the location of tribes in the area at the time of European contact:
  • In addition, here is a link to an NCpedia showing the contemporary tribes in North Carolina that have been recognized by the state, and it includes general mention of the counties where they are located:

If you are interested in researching your family history, I can recommend a few other resources that might help. 

If you happen to be in North Carolina, you can also visit the library at 109 E. Jones Street and we would be glad to help you get started in your family history search.  You’ll find contact information and our operating hours on the website:

I hope this helps.  Please let me know if I can help with any additional questions.

Best wishes,

I wrote an article for the 2010 THJH that was an overview about the great Depression in the state. The link on this site to Great Depression articles misdirects to the Industrial Revolution. Is there a way for me to see my article online? Thanks!


Thank you for the feedback about the link! I appreciate it and have corrected it.

I have sent you an email to connect you with the Tar Heel Junior Historian. It does not appear that your article is one we have reprinted in NCpedia, so they may know if it is available elsewhere.

Thank you for taking the time to post your inquiry, and thank you for using NCpedia!
