In my search for more information on my relatives, I have decided to look at some old archived, North Carolina newspapers.
I have found the following websites to be helpful:
Wikipedia list of NC Newspapers – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_newspapers_in_North_Carolina
NC Digital Library NC Newspapers – https://www.digitalnc.org/collections/newspapers/
This site has a map, which I find extremely helpful.
