My husband and I are planning a trip to Duplin County later on this winter. He had ancestors that lived there. Insel SULLIVAN born in 1809 and died in 1890 in Duplin County. We need to see if we can get back to his father, etc.
I know that two of his children Elias and Lemuel were in the Civil War. They were in Company C, 51st Regiment. I think they were know as the "Duplin Stars". Do you have any information about that regiment or can you tell me if the library there has any. I am trying to make sure Elias(who was my husband's great grandfather) is for sure the child of Insel.
