Trying to locate information on J. H. Cashwell, wife, Martha Jackson. I believe they are the parents of my husband's grandfather, Thomas Cashwell. I found J.H. & Martha on the 1870 census in Bladen Co., NC but they are not listed in 1880. I have not found them in Cumberland or Columbus. If you have any information that puts these people in Duplin County, NC, after 1870 I would like to hear from you. Thomas married, Sarah Florence Stubbs and they lived and died in Hope Mills, NC

Has anyone in Dupin County come across listings of Bible records published in FAMILY PUZZLERS, the weekly genealogy magazine edited by Mary Bondurant Warren from 1964 until 1998? I thought that HERITAGE PAPERS went out of business when Mrs. Warren stopped publishing Puzzlers the end of 1998. Not so!! I recently found the new websites for HERITAGE PAPERS as well as for FAMILY PUZZLERS, TNG, the monthly magazine edited by Mrs. Warren's daughter Amy Warren Sanders! Most of the items that Heritage Papers used to advertise in their annual catalog are still available, including back issues of the quarterly magazines GEORGIA GENEALOGIST and CAROLINA GENEALOGIST, lots of historic maps, as well as source materials for Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Georgia. Some bound volumes of Family Puzzlers are still available. For Heritage Papers, go to http://www.galaxymall.com/books/heritagepapers For Family Puzzlers, The Next Generation, go to http://www.galaxymall.com/books/familypuzzlers I just thought you'd like to know!
