My name is Etta.  I am researching my great grandfather, Charles Stevenson, born in North Carolina around 1838. He migrated to Travis/Williamson county,Texas sometime before the Civil War. He was married to Clara Allen and later to Julia Renfro.  I am trying to identify his parents and siblings.  I have searched public ally available records including the census, marriage and death indexes.  I have begun searching the North Carolina state archives for probates, wills and land records.  These efforts have not been productive.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.  Thanks. Etta

Welcome to Wikitree!

I have also followed a lot of my ancestors following a westward path from a North Carolina British Colony to the state west into Tennessee and many continuing on to the newly formed Lone Star State. Some returned others stayed and others moved on. I think that is truly what makes our geneaology question so appealing is trying to follow their footsteps and why they did what they did.
