NICHOLAS FRANKLIN ROBERTS, A.B., A.M. Professor of Mathematics--President of the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina--Moderator of 100,000 Colored Baptists. AMONG the rising young men of the old "Tar Heel State "is the one whose name is at the head of this article.

Then the depths from which some people rise, and the heights to which they climb, is worthy of notice. Now is there reason for the farmer boy who reads this sketch to be discouraged because he has hard work, plowing, cutting and hauling wood, caring for the pigs, feeding the cows, and other laborious work? It seems not to me. The advantages of a farm life are many, though there may be rough spots and difficult passages. Indeed, the days of a farmer are well spent in being influenced by nature and thus being led up to nature's God. Boys in the country have their minds measurably kept pure and untainted by the things that destroy the purity of the mind, and many of these "young men" referred to are mentioned as a means of encouragement to those who still are behind in the race of life. He was born near Seaboard, North Hampton county, North Carolina, October 13, 1849. At the age of twelve years he relates that he...

Men Of Mark And Representative Citizens Of Harrisonburg And Rockingham County Virginia from the Author: John W. Wayland. In 1850 and again in 1860, the U.S. government carried out a census of slave owners and their property. Jack F. Cox's transcription of the 1850 slave owners' census is arranged in alphabetical order according to the surname of the slave owner and gives his/her full name, number of slaves owned, and the county of residence. It may be just possible that more persons with slave ancestors will be able to trace them via other records (property records, for example) pertaining to the 37,000 slave owners enumerated in this new volume.
