I am looking for any and all information regarding the Link family of North Carolina, in particular the family of Jacob Link (1760-1828) and Catherine Rudisill (1771-1846) who lived in Lincoln and what is now Catawba County, North Carolina.
I am descended as follows:
LCHA staff recently completed a report for the Emergency Relief Administration Stone Fence at the corner of East McBee Street and North Cedar Street in Lincolnton, and we are posting it on the network for your enjoyment.

LCHA Network Members,
One of our members recently sent to everyone an inappropriate message from our administrator's email, and we apologize for the inconvenience. We have deleted this person from the network, so you should not receive any other messages of that nature from our administrator.
Again, sorry for the incovenience, and we appreciate those who made us aware of this.

Recently, Jason L. Harpe, LCHA Executive Director, and Bill C. Beam, LCHA President, traveled to Washington, D.C. to fill a cargo van with genealogical material compiled by Larry Phillip Leonard over a period of fifty years. We returned to Lincoln County with over thirty boxes of three-ring binders, books, newsletters, letters, and other material, and we will post on the network a complete inventory of the collection very soon. We are indebted to Thomas Mabon for honoring and memorializing…Continue

I'm the guy that bought that old house on 27 that some think should have been burned down as a fire dept exercise. I look at it differently, I think it's the house I've been looking for, for over 20 years. Just watch as I get it back in shape!
I could use a little help though. If anyone has pictures of the house, 3482 E Highway 27, Lincolnton, even if it's just in the background of a picture, I would love to see them. In particular I am looking for any historically accurate pictures…Continue

I'm trying to identify the persons in this photo. It's of a Hovis reunion that was held 23 Feb 1907 (date written by my grandmother on back of photo). I've identified my grandfather, Marcus Benjamin Hovis Sr. and his father Marcus Luther Hovis. I believe the man seated on the front row third from right is Marcus' father Moses S. Hovis. The copy I have is a copy with the stamp of Clyde C. Cornwell on the back. Any help would be greatly appreciated!…Continue
I'm looking for any an all information related to the history of water in Lincoln County. From what I understand, water from Walker Branch and McDaniel Spring was used to supply drinking water to the town. I know that the Walker Branch spring is a lithium spring and that Lithia Inn was used as a health spa for the cure (for what?). And of course there was Catawba Springs which was also used for the cure (for what?) I know that local indians camped in the area of the Walker Branch spring on…Continue

On a daily basis we receive phone calls and emails from folks all over the United States with questions regarding our collections, genealogical material, events, and projects, and occasionally, we receive nearly simultaneous emails regarding the same subject or topic. The C.P. Miller House on Highway 27 East near the intersection of Highways 27 and 73 in Lincolnton has been veiled for many years under the title of "eyesore," and people have asked us why we can't make the owner do…Continue
