Rowan County, North Carolina....Gold Hill.....I am familiar with two names Culp and Melchor. The Culp I remember lived in GoldHill during the 1950s when I used to visit my relatives. He was Caucasian. The Melchor I knew, and was related to, was that of a Lucy Melchor. She was African American. Not to say either is related; only to say that those are two of the popular names in and around the area. I am also related to African Americans such as House, Crowell, Heilig, and Culbertson. I also have heard of the Honeycutts, the Russells,and theTrents, and Hearne. These are old families of GoldHill, Black andWhite. Joseph
