I saw your post. I am not of this ancestral line, but I have been trying to find the Battle book you mentioned as well,as I understand that it is such a good read about early North Carolina. Please let me know if you ever come across any other copies of it anywhere. I'm in Chicago and have no idea where to begin to find such a book. I grew up in Southern Nash County. Thanks.
