About Our Family Research

I have done research on the HAYNES and MITCHAM families who were from the Lincoln, Gaston and Cleveland County areas in North Carolina. Have been doing this research for 10 plus years.

I have just since the end of 2003 been connected to many family members in the HAYNES line. It was a brick wall for so long, but we talked to a kind retired school teacher one day in Lincoln Co., and she put us in touch with a 3rd cousin whom she taught in school. They didn't even know their granddad had any they are learning of many more large families in this circle. We are coming up on our 2nd reunion in Oct 2005 in Reepsville. I have been in touch by phone to many leads in this family, and have learned of many names. Then, I got a lot of help from the Censuses online, Birth Index, SSDI, etc. Now, my very small list of names in the family has grown tremendously. So this family if finally falling into shape. Sad to say, though, that we still have not been able to connect to the family of my GGgrandfather, James H Hanes.

Most of the family in the MITCHAM/EM lines was passed onto me by 3rd cousins that had already researched this line for many years. I was able to bring it on down to current generations, at least in my own line.
