I am trying to find information on Alfred TAYLOR from North Carolina. He was born in 1813 and married Mary "Polly" Bailey about 1830 (also born about 1813). Ancestry.com family trees indicate that he was from Edgecombe, but I have no source records for that. He had a large family of ten known children born between 1830 and 1849 all in North Carolina. I have not been able to locate his family in North Carolina at all. I'd like to find birth records for any of his children, proof of where in NC he lived, or his parent's information. Since all of these birth's were pre-1913, does anyone know a good place for me to try next?? (Children's names are Susan, Margaret, Louisina, John, William Bennet, David, Berton, David, Rebecca, Nancy)
Thanks for your help!
