Forgot the Edgecombe County description which is really interesting
and gives a warning and also some details about where the information
in the book came from (subscription service with each 'lady' writing
their recollections) as well as warnings about the conflicting
dates/names and etc.:
"It is important to realize that information has been entered into
the database exactly as it was
found in the book. For example, one wedding date is given
only as Feb 31. On a few
occasions, people were given dates of death that preceeded
their dates of birth, or they were
listed in a CSA unit when they lived and died in the 18th
century. Sometimes a man listed
with a certain wife, birth and marriage dates, children, and
father will have a different
mother on two separate pages. These obvious errors have also
been included, as printed in the
book. It is up to the researcher to decide their veracity. "
