We're looking for DATA for this site!!!


If you are interested in adding your families' information this website,email us.
We'll be happy to help your families' obituaries, news items and other historical data find a home here at North Carolina Genealogy Trails, where it will remain free for all to view.

We're looking to add the transcribed data from the vital records, biographies from the county histories as well as the county history information itself, transcriptions of obituaries, burial data from cemetery trompings and/or readings, the data from military pensions and other service records; enumerations from census years, any newspaper gleanings for the family members including birth announcements, marriage announcements, death notices/obits and anything in between - in short, the data you used to build your family tree
(rather than the tree itself since we don't have the space or manpower to accept gedcoms and trees)

The county was formed in 1777 from Edgecombe County. It was named for Brigadier General Francis Nash, who had been mortally wounded that year at the Battle of Germantown.

In 1855 parts of Nash County, Edgecombe County, Johnston County, and Wayne County were combined to form Wilson County, North Carolina.
The county is divided into sixteen townships: Bailey, Castalia, Coopers, Dry Wells, Ferrells, Griffins, Jackson, Mannings, Nashville, North Whitakers, Oak Level, Red Oak, Rocky Mount, Spring Hope, South Whitakers, and Stony Creek.
