      This is a great resource, which will find even names that are no longer in use, for towns, streams, hills, swamps, and many other geographical features.

      Cheryl, If I had to guess, maybe it was Baynor s Branch or a mis-spelling/mis-pronunciation of that. That is a common Beaufort County name. You might refer

          The only reference we have to this property on Bayard Branch is from "Huxford Journal June 1996

          "Caleb Moore was born in Pitt County, North Carolina (Beaufort Co.) in 1760." ....

          I'm omitting other info ,, then: "... On October 2, 1798 Caleb sold his farm located along Bayard Branch in Pitt County consisting of seventy acres to Jesse Barnhill for thirty-seven punds (Note: likely pounds), ten shillings. Deed transfering ownership was signed by Caleb with an 'x'. witnessed by Moses and Cason Moore and was was recorded in Pitt County July Court Term 1799. ..."

          Now, we have tracked a gaggle of likely Moore suspects to the Tar River/Grindle's Creek area ,, and found another reference today to "a John Moore" as adjacent owner on the Pimlico in Beaufort pre 1760 in a location that seems nearby. So, we are workng on closing our circles and eliminating various 'John Moores.' That is not an easy task.

          We may need to put this property transfer on our "list for the visit to the archives in Raliegh."

          Thanks for all help, best, cheryl rhoden o7o

I'm hoping it doesn't refer to the branch of a tree which so many surveys seemed to reference. This would be in Pitt Co ,, likely somewhere along the Tar River, near Grindle's Creek or possibly further SW.

          A "branch" in this case is a small creek or where a creek branches into smaller tributaries. I'm from Pitt County and very familiar with creeks of the Tar and Pamlico Rivers, but I've never heard of Bayard Branch. I'll look on a topographic map and see if I can locate it. If I do, I'll let you know.

            There is a movement afoot to change the name of North Carolina's Lumber River (Pee Dee in S.C.) to Lumbee, in honor of that tribe. I do not appose the name change; I do question the accuracy behind how the AP and/or N.C. Gen. Assb. says the Lumber River was named. Implied is it was just some lumber businesses, I think they indicated in the c1830's or some such? My ancestor, Capt. John James (Society of the Cincinnati, but I'm only in the SAR and not on him), was killed age 16 by Tories whilst crossing the Lumber River, per a very old entry in the family Bible printed in 1714 and 1715. The N.C. State Archives Rev. War cancelled (two holes) final pay voucher has an unusuall note on the obverse which I think also said killed by Tories whilst crossing the Lumber River. Thus predating the lumber companies version; and what do they claim the name was pre-lumber companies? Widow Mrs. Martha Pugh James (sister of Ens. Whitmel Pugh?) wed Ephrain Sholar, and some of my James kin descend both husbands (via Sholar-Tillinghast). I think her parents were James Pugh Sr. and Mrs. Mary Whitmel Pugh of now eastern Cumberland Co., N.C., from Halifax Co. (Sholars from Halifax also). Her father might have been Col. Thomas Whitmel and his Lt.Col. Francis Pugh, Sr.? Francis Pugh, Jr., had an adjoing land grant on or near the Cape Fear River in now eastern Cumberland Co. My Wilmington ancestor ran the Bradley & Sharpless Inn (from Chester, Penn.) at Choefington, in the same area. John and Partha Pugh James had Wilmington War of 1812, artillery 4th Sgt. Joshua James, Sr., who wed Hetty-Bella Sage, the daughter of Robert and Sarah Sage, Sr., at who's inn Pres. Washington stopped on his Southern Tour. Washington recorded it as "indifferent" and did not record meeting his little namesake, George Washington Sage. Robert and Sarah ran the Wilmington to New Bern stage line and were wed in New Bern. A register of deeds entry records a pass for an unaccompanied slave to go back on the stage to fetch a forgotten documemt. I suspect Sarah (Waring?) was the widow of a Col. James Moore who owned adjoining land on Beasley's Creek (earlier called Bay Tree Creek). Mrs. Hettey-Bella Sage James (she died Richlands, and Josh' died Lexington, both in Holmes Co., Miss. (not to beconfused with Richlands, N.C.). They had my LtCol Robert Wm. James born Wilmington 1811, died Biloxi 1882, LtCol 1850's Holmes Co. militia (1st Ann Maria Ambrose of Onslow Co., niece of Ann Maria Ward, no issue)(2nd Jane Ann Nixon of New Orleans and Biloxi, my line via son Capt. Harry Copp James, harbormaster), Robert was civilian master of the army transport 'Gen. Hamer" out of New Orleans in the Mexican War. Sister Sarah Julia James wed Kenansville, N.C., merchant Andrew McIntire. Brother John Sage James published a Wilmington newspaper; I think it was his (Tillinghast?) wife who descended Sholar. Sage may have also been a paymaster on the Wilmington & Weldon Rail Road with his own paymaster's car? Joshua James, Jr., when he lived below Natchez; Jeff Davis would have his slaves row across the Missisippi River to have Josh' Jr. as a dinner guest (buried N.O.). Josh' later owned 'Ione' Plantation, Tensus Parish, La. Two of his four sons were Louisiana CSA cavalryman. My Harry Copp James, age 16, was in Capt. Hall's New Orleans Zouve Fire Brigade Militia. Josh wed a prominent Natchez widow who had eastern Tar Heel roots.

              The Bayard family members were definitely distinguished early colonials. And there were definitely Bayards in NC so I'm guessing at this point that Bayard Branch was named for the family property. More work to do on this.
