Black Sheep & Kissing Cousins: Charting Your N.C. History

Record #:
Rowan County in the 1700s was a junction of two major roads: the Great Pennsylvania Wagon Road and the Warrior's Trading Path. Records of who passed through, who settled, then moved on, were stored in the courthouse at Salisbury. Through the single-handed efforts of Mary Elizabeth Gaskill McCubbins, who amassed over 150,000 pieces of genealogical information, the records were made more accessible to the public. Today the Rowan Public Library's genealogical section, with 4,000 microfilms, 20,000 books, and the McCubbins' Collection, is one of the nation's top genealogical research libraries.
