Hi Edith,
I find the following Northams in Carol Benton's compilation of Richmond Co. Graveyard Records:
John T., 10/25/1820--2/7/1877, Zion Church Cemetery
Lucy O., 11/7/1910--4/21/1911, dau. of W.G. & J.P., Northam Cemetery
Margaret, 8/17/1824--6/27/1904, wife of J.T., Zion Church Cemetery
William H., 8/13/1859--3/3/1910, Zion Church Cemetery
I also checked the relatives index for Northams who might be mentioned on other entries, but found none.
These records were compiled from the DAR Survey and the Historic Records Survey, both done in the 1930's. There are bound to be omissions and errors, and some tombstones were already missing. So there may be/have been more Northams in the Northam Cemetery but the book just shows one. I checked the 1900 census and didn't find any Northams, but there are a few in the 1850 census. If you don't have that info, I'd be happy to send it.
