Robert Phillip "Phil" Upchurch has served as an unofficial historian for the Upchurch Family for over forty years. In the 1970's, he became great friends with Etta Belle (Lewter) West and Ada (Olive) Morgan, both long since deceased. They both produced excellent books on the Upchurch Family, now out of print. They cast their mantle of approval over Phil and supported his initiation of the UPCHURCH BULLETIN which he has produced since 1980. Over 60,000 members of the Upchurch Family have been identified and published. For four years, Phil also published ENGLANDIA to give emphasis to the origins of the family in England. He contracted with Professor David Ransome of England to consult in this effort. Over the last three decades, more than $100,000 has been expended to collect and publish information on the Upchurch Family. A very large number of people have contributed to this venture both in supplying information and in providing finances. All of the materials collected will eventually become a part of the permanent Upchurch Collection at N.C. State University. An endowment now valued in excess of $35,000 has been established to support, expand, and share this collection. A goal of $100,000 has been established.
While the above shows progress and status much work remains to be done. This website is designed to encourage interested parties to assist with the further development of Upchurch Family History. To this end, several sections are presented below which reveal just how an interested individual may help and benefit from interaction.
