Most of us will agree. familysearch.org is the best place to start searching for records

"North Carolina Birth Index, 1800-2000," database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:VC3Z-7W7 : 8 December 2014), James Leroy Jolly, 18 Dec 1922; from "North Carolina, Birth and Death Indexes, 1800-2000," database and images, Ancestry (http://www.ancestry.com : 2005); citing vol. 1922, p. 767, Robeson, North Carolina, North Carolina State Archives, Raleigh.

You will likely find census records there, possibly his parents marriage, etc. 

Good luck.

Maureen is correct, familysearch is a great starting point.

If you click on the familysearch link below you will find some records on his father James Oberry and family.  Enter names/date ranges/locations in the free search tool to find more on his parents, wife, etc.
