The Phelps Family (of Anne Arundel, MD)
To view these scanned pages go to the Phelps Research Blog Double click these images to enlarge them.
"The Phelps Family", by professional genealogist Robert Barnes, details the early Phelps of Anne Arundel, MD. One of the more important items to the James Phelps line of Caswell, NC is the list of "Unplaced Phelps" beginning on page 371. On page 373 there is a James Phelps in the 1766 All Hallows Parrish listing 1 white male, 1 white female, and 5 white children. This would fit the James Phelps who died in 1786 Caswell Co, NC.
This and a later document, "Further Notes on Phelps" by Louis Giles, never identifies this James Phelps.
