" Hi,
>     I was just wondering if anyone in your organization may know of a
> very peculiar record in the 1830 Orange County North Carolina Census. I was looking  at the 1830 Handwritten Census records on Ancestry.com when I got to
> pages 352 and 353 (another census source had pages 103 & 104 written in at the top) for the northern district (Bahama/ Rougemont area
> near Mt Tabor Church.) There are listed 11 female head of households
> in a row; starting with Polly Brinkley and ending with Janey Jones. All listed as
white / female.
Occupants  in each household ran from 1 to 8. Janey Jones is living 8
> households away from my ancestor Jesse Mangum.
> Could this have been some type of house or settlement for single
> women?
> Any help would be greatly appreciated.
> I live in Calabash, NC so I'm too far away to attend the meetings.
> My best regards,
> George Mangum"
