I was very excited to recently add these two books to my genealogy library: Wake – Capitol County of North Carolina, Vol. 1 by Elizabeth Reid Murray and Wake – Capitol County of North Carolina, Vol 2 by K Todd Johnson and Elizabeth Reid Murray. I highly recommend both books if you research in Wake County, NC.
Look who shows up in Volume 1!
Yes, that is my James Harwood (Harward/Howard)!
Who knows? You might just find your ancestor in there as well.
