m#MASHBURNMASHBURN posted by Judy Lynn Marshburn on Thursday, March 4, 1999

My father moved to Duplin Co. 40 years ago and much to everyone's surprise I have found out from the census records that my great-greatgrandfather moved from Duplin Co. 150 years ago. His name was Daniel Henderson MASHBURN. His father was James MASHBURN who died in 1840. It lists that my family lived in the Southerland District of Duplin Co. and so far no one at the county offices has been able to tell me where this is. Do you have a clue? If I can be of help to you since I do live in Duplin Co. contact me. Also, I know that Wallace, where I live was part of the area where Scots were given land grants from Governor Johnson who were part of the Highland Clearances of Scotland. There were many Southerlands living here in the early history but there is not many now, so I was curious if this was the place James lived. Thanks for your help and I will try to return the favor. Sincerely,
