Blackbeard in North Carolina



Edward Teach was one of the pirates who pillaged the eastern coast of the United States.  He drew famous title of "Blackbeard".  He was born ca 1680 and is believed to have died on Ocracoke Island in North Carolina. His splendid capture was Queen Anne's Revenge, equipped with 40 guns. He formed alliances with other pirates and blockaded the port of Charleston, South Carolina.

After successfully ransoming its inhabitants, he ran Queen Anne's Revenge aground on a sandbar near Beaufort, North Carolina and parted company with Bonnet when he accepted a royal pardon and temporarily settled at Bath Town.  But he returned to pirating and Governor Spotswood  of Virginia arranged his capture on 22 November 1718.  During a ferocious battle, Teach and several of his crew were killed by a small force of sailors led by Lieutenant Robert Maynard.

A search along the North Carolina coast and isles for his treasures has been ongoing since his death.

Historical Cities Uninterrupted by Time

It is always fun to explore old towns and places where history thrived, such as St. Augustine, Florida. Over 400 years of history is plain to see as you walk through the old streets, peruse old buildings and homes and tour the Spanish fort. The Spanish made their claim during the early 1500's, and a Huguenot colony from France followed. There are some very old cemeteries, the Huguenot, a burial ground of those who died during the yellow fever epidemic of 1823, Catholic cemetery, a cemetery for the Tolomato Indians,and a National Cemetery containing burials of Union Soldiers. These cemeteries are found on Southeastern Genealogy.

This charming city is widely visited every year by internationals as well as US citizens.  The history is well documented by plaques designating the oldest houses and churches, tourism galore.  A great place for genealogists to dig.

Progress of Genealogy on the Internet

We've come a long way, baby!  Nevertheless, the distance we need to travel is still far away. The sprinkling of genealogy websites is sparse.  All of the information is simply not there! For example, from the earliest times,when a vessel left port, a ship's manifest and passenger list was written. You see mention of such in the various colonial records kept by counties.  For one thing, England required certain tariffs or taxes to be paid by those sending and receiving.  When the vessel landed, the captain was supposed to deliver the ship's manifest to local authorities, but sometimes this was delayed by weeks.  The passenger lists which you see published in regional libraries are but a drop in the bucket.  Apparently, the National Archives has a bunch of records in their raw form yet unpublished.  But there are other missing records which genealogists need to find kin.  The records of Jamestown did not survive because the town was burned down during the Bacon Rebellion of 1686.  Other counties in other States also suffered such losses.  For example, General Sherman torched as many southern court houses as he could on his march through Atlanta.  Also, from 1861 to 1865 battles around Virginia was constantly in action.  Be that as it may, there still exists out there somewhere records which were taken home by clerks to work on or removed during times of crisis.  The British torched Washington, D. C. during the War of 1812 and burned census records for certain States.  We are a record-keeping people. If you do not believe me, examine the minute books or order books kept by county clerks.  They are like diaries.  Every little item of business is recorded, from the branding of animals, tavern licenses, recording of wills and appointment of road commissioners to expenses of keeping the poor.  Initially, original documents such as old wills and the probate of estates were kept at the court house. Every receipt, voucher, inventory, sale and distribution was presented.  The Clerk then copied from the originals into a book.  The websites listed below continue to collect images of old wills and estates. That is a "newbie" to the internet, as no one else has it.
