UM Bios and Pics

We are looking for old pictures of Umstead family members, their homes, their tombstones, etc, as well as biographies. If you have something you would like to see on this page, please let me know, but PLEASE FIRST OBTAIN PERMISSION for use.

You will find that some of these images load slowly, I'm sorry about that, but I don't want to sacrifice quality for the sake of fast loading.

PLEASE NOTE: The copying of photographic images without WRITTEN permission is a violation of copyright.
