Welcome to the Roanoke Beacon Index
This index contains brief information on items of genealogical interest (i.e. deaths, marriages, births, etc.) that have appeared in the Roanoke Beacon newsapaper of Plymouth, North Carolina. Surrounding counties (Martin, Bertie, Chowan, Perquimans, Beaufort, Martin, Tyrrell, Hertford & Gates) are also represented.
COVERAGE: Spans 1889 - 1899
- The index does not include - advertisements, international, national and state news
- The full-text is usually not included. I have written brief details and in some cases, transcribed content to the Roanoke Beacon blog.
- Information is presented as is, so may not be "politically correct" in today's terms
- The information in this database is abstracted from microfilm purchased from the North Carolina State Archives. There are gaps in the microfilm collection, as well as cases where the text is unreadable.
