Can anyone help with these queries?


My name is Brenda Harris and I am seeking information on my great 
grandfather Shadrach Emanuel born 1833. He was 
married to Flora Elizabeth born in 1871. By the 1900 census they were 
living in Georgia I think in Emanuel county.
But they were both born in Sampson county NC. 

I had heard since I was a kid that my great great grandfather (father 
of Shadrach) was a full-blooded Cherokee Indian
living on a reservation in either Raleigh or Richmond. I can't find 
anything to confirm that and I was hoping you 
could help me. 

I know Shadrach and Flora along with their children and many nieces and 
nephews were on both the 1900
and 1910 census and I found Nicholas Emanuel 150-01-0 and Ephraim Emanuel 
500-1-0 in the 1784-86 census.
And in the 1790 census I found the following persons in the column titled: 
all other free persons except, Indians, not taxed.
Ephraim Emanuel 3 persons, Jesse Emanuel 6 persons, Levi Emanuel 5, 
Nicholas Emanuel 5, and John Emanuel 5 persons.

By the way what does that mean? All other free persons except, Indians not 
Hope you can help. My family is very anxious to learn about our family 
history. We would very much like to create a family
tree to pass on to our families.

Posted December 6, 2011 I am trying to find information on an abandoned school in Sampson Co. I tried to find something online, but I did not find much, so now I decided to find someone to ask about it. We were visiting my in-laws in Dunn this weekend and we drove past it and I was very curious about it since I love old buildings and anything historic. We went back the next day and took some pictures of it and I just wanted to find out the history behind it. If you don't already know what school I am talking about, it is on Hwy 701 next to Halls Fire Dept. I did find the information on it being used by Tarheel Challenge in the 90s, other than that I could not find anything out. Can you help me? I would like to know anything about it. When was it built? When did it close? Name? What was it used for? And anything else you could tell me if you know. If you cannot help me, can you direct me to someone who can? Also, as a side note, we also passed a huge brick home that was being overtaken by weeds and it had also fallen in on itself, but still looked beautiful. I believe it was on 421 at a crossroads south of Clinton. Can you tell me anything about this place? Email direct at:
