3. Images of America - Robeson County by K. Blake Tyner
Robeson County has been a labor of love and a wonderful collaboration of the citizens of Robeson County. This project began as an independent study for my history major at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.

My wife, Bess, and I were able to find a large number of photographs in our own collection, the Hubbard-Tyner Collection, and this created a starting point for the gathering. I traveled the county renewing friendships and creating new ones as I sought out the needed photographs and information to create this book.

The book features over 200 photographs from numerous collections many never seen outside of the family. I have attempted in photos and captions to tell the story of Robeson from the Native Americans who first lived in the area to the white and African Americans settlers who made it their adopted home.

The book is divided into eight chapters, click on each chapter to see samples of the photos from that chapter: Home Life and Family, Work Life, Religious Life, Education, Government, Wars and Military Activities, Robeson County Citizens, & Social and Community Events.
The cost is $19.99 plus $3.50 shipping & handling.


4. Robeson County in Vintage Postcards by K. Blake Tyner
This volume has brought together a collection of vintage postcards that seek to take the reader on a trip through Robeson County’s proud heritage. I have strived to include not only street scenes and business scenes from long ago but historical homes, churches, and most importantly, community life. I gratefully acknowledge the overwhelming support of those interested in the preservation of Robeson County history in their generous assistance in sharing their images and stories. It has been a true joy to journey back and reconstruct the county’s past. All postcards not listed as belonging to another individual or part of a collection are from the Hubbard-Tyner Collection, this collection was started by my wife and myself to purchase as many items relating to the history of North and South Carolina as possible.

The main purpose of this book, other than the preservation and dissemination of these postcards is to continue to build an interest in the study of Robeson County’s history, and to encourage others to seek out documents, photos, maps, and other ephemera relating to the county history while it still exists. Every twenty years represents a new generation and the potential of the loss of large amounts of our history and artifacts. If new generations of Robesonians are interested in their history and the study of their proud heritage, then the purpose of this book is fulfilled. Our future is truly rooted in our past, and preservation of this foundation is a sacred trust that we must uphold. The chapters are Street Scenes; Water and Rails; Agriculture, Industry, and Business; Hotels and Inns; Homes; Education; Military; Religion; Social Life and Popular Diversions & Robeson Lost – Hoke County.
The cost is $19.99 plus $3.50 shipping & handling.

5. Marriage & Death Notices 1816 - 1840 Abstracted from the
Fayetteville Observer and Predecessor Papers by
Bessie R. Hubbard

This book came into being as a result of frustration of the author, as is the case of many books. In my genealogical research, I, like everyone else, have a number of "deadend" lines. As I began a search of the Fayetteville Observer marriage and death notices to see if they contained anything of value for me personally, I gained a great appreciation for the quality and quantity of information contained in the papers. I decided to extract this material, and prepare a complete index of it, so that others who would like to use this wonderful source could access it easily. I have attempted to include only the material of genealogical or unusual historical interest. Thus, in many cases, items like the name of the pastor who preformed the marriage, or the professions of persons are left out. Let me state, in bold letters that these abstracts are not a substitute for the actual obituary or marriage notice in the paper. They are intended as a guide to enable you, the researcher, to see the highpoints of a listing at a glance.

* Over 800 marriage listings covering NC and upper SC. Many contain much detailed information regarding the bride's family.
* Over 1800 death listings covering the same area.
* Complete Full Name Index (over 65 pages!)
* Perpetual Calendar - to be used to determine the date when only the day of the week is given in the listing
* 193 pages, 9 page introduction, soft bound, 8 1/2" x 11"Clear, readable text
The cost is $30 plus $5 shipping & handling.

His foresights and incentives place him among the greatest of NC leadership among the southern states.
