Families of Cabarrus County, North Carolina, 1792 - 1815
Families of Cabarrus County, North Carolina, 1792-1815. Kathleen Marler. (2004).

Cabarrus County in south central North Carolina was formed in 1792 from Mecklenburg County and is today situated between Mecklenburg and Rowan counties. Mrs. Marler?s new work on Cabarrus County is the first effort we know of to systematically present information on all families in that county from its inception until the end of the War of 1812. The author extracted her findings from the 1790 Mecklenburg County census, the 1800 Cabarrus census, court records, Mecklenburg county deed records, marriage records, wills, and newspaper obituaries. She has arranged the families alphabetically according to the surname of the head of each household, incorporating all available data and its source in an outline format. Whenever possible, Mrs. Marler embellishes the limited content from these early censuses with information such as the name(s) of neighboring families, persons who bought/sold land to the principal householder, details of a marriage, and so forth. In all, the volume identifies 2,000 early families in Cabarrus County and perhaps five times as many persons overall. Can there be any doubt that Families of Cabarrus County, North Carolina must be reckoned as the new starting point for research in this early North Carolina county?
