draws upon two bodies of information: (1) Data compiled by members of the Order who undertook to document their ancestry; and (2) Mr. Brayton’s unsurpassed knowledge of the pioneering families of the Tar Heel State, its repositories, and their sources. In this context the author treats each ancestor and his or her children as a distinct genealogical unit, providing abbreviated but appropriate proof for each statement made concerning his or her spouse(s), children, and their children’s spouses. Many of these ancestors are contained in the collections of First Families of Virginia, and in a dozen or so cases, new chains of descent for the FFV families appear in this monograph.
