As the graves of other families are identified, we'll attempt to post copies of original documents (will, estate papers, etc.) to show why or how we identified each. If you have any questions about this process or would like to help, please contact us. Unless otherwise noted, all document originals are on file in the Research Room, NC Archives, Raleigh, NC.
Tabitha Trogdon, 1765 - 1860 Tabitha was the wife of Solomon Trogdon, proven by the estate document posted below. She was the daughter of Seymore and Sylvania Aldridge York. You can view Semore York's tombstone on the Sandy Creek Baptist Church tombstone page.
Solomon Trogdon, 1760 - 1826 Solomon was the son of William Trogdon, called The Patriot by many of his descendants.
W x D / May 17 / 1783 So far, no one has been able to identify this grave. At one time we thought it might be the grave of William Diffee, but a careful look at his will and probate records proved that theory wrong. If you can help identify this grave, please contact us.
Nehemiah Odell, died July 1783 aged about 40 years. This one is a puzzle. The tombstone clears reads the death date as 1783 but the oral will of Nehemiah Odell was proved in Randolph County Court on "second Monday of March 1791". Were there 2 men named Nehemiah Odell or did the family wait several years before taking his will to court? Click here to see a copy of the will and transcription.
