For those with connections to the Mode surname, you may be interested in joining the Mode Surname Group on Facebook. Currently we have about 50 members, and many of them seem to have connections to the Mode clan in Western North Carolina, specifically in the counties of Cleveland, Rutherford, and McDowell. Some of the Mode clan ended up as far away as Oregon and others as close as Tennessee and South Carolina. Many of those in our group have done DNA testing as well, which has helped tremendously in tying up loose ends. Family members have submitted a variety of material including pictures, documents, Civil War records, and genealogical material.
