I typed his name into the search engine several times before, along with the name of his wife and the county where, I had strong reason to believe, he was born.

Nothing.

I added an estimated date of birth.

Nothing.

Death.

Nothing.

I eventually moved on and sought information pertaining to other members of my tree. Earlier this week, however, I typed his name — Jethro WARREN — into the engine again and instead of including the name of his wife and the county in which I had strong reason to believe he was born (Harnett) — I simply selected “North Carolina.” Imagine my surprise to see the yielded result.
