I'm new here. My family has a lot of history in Hamlet. My great grandfather Christenberry Jordan Byrd was a railroad conductor there.
I have been fascinated in learning more about the railroad. I can remember being a young girl, and my grandmother brought us there to see Hamlet, which is where she grew up. I have not been there in a long time, so I can imagine things have changed. I just wanted to share that. I really have enjoyed learning more about where my family came from :)

Does your family include a Curtis or Margaret?

Joe, the Margaret Byrd that you are referring to passed away a few months back. She was married to William Billingsly who also grew up in Hamlet. Margaret's daddy was Mike Byrd.

The Byrd family that I belong to lived in Byrdville. My great grandfather moved to Hamlet with his family and that's where my grandmother Elizabeth Byrd grew up until she married and moved to Alamance County :)
