Who were some of the coroners from 1865 to 1932?

Gail Calloway

Coroners during this time frame are virtually impossible to track down. Being a coroner was secondary to the person’s main profession.

After checking through county and court files with the help of Jennifer Daugherty in the North Carolina Room at the main branch of the New Hanover County Public Library, we could not find a listing of coroners.

If any of you had any members of your family or know of anyone who filled this capacity during this time frame. Please let us know in the Comments section below.


The Fifth Avenue bridge was named after Thelma Bull. Who was she?

What years did the Goat Man come through Wilmington?

    I had thought my great grandfather was one because we found his small bible with the word CORONER written on the edge. I can’t verify it though like you said it is hard to find…I am trying everything I know to track down some ancestors…thanks for the help

    Best of luck tracking that down. Do you know what your great-grandfather’s other occupation was? Was he a physician?
