Unfortunately nothing from the 18th century or early 19th century was preserved. There are no road records for either Dobbs or Glasgow Co. in the Archives.

Chapel Hill, NC - History of Town Lots (1790-1930s) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $35.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
The objective of this book (like the one for Hillsborough) is to document the individual town lots for Chapel Hill. However, unlike Hillsborough, the town was not platted with hundreds of lots, all... More > the same size, in an ever expanding process. The town lots of Chapel Hill were sold for funds to build and operate the University (again showing the duality of the early mission). This book contains deed records pertaining to houses and businesses in Chapel Hill. The deeds are chained together (as best possible) to show a particular lot's history. Is every lot and piece of land covered in this book? NO. However, a very large collection is included. Is every lot traversed from 1790 to 1930? NO. Some lots have breaks, where I could not trace it. The focus is on the OLD records. It is rather easy to take a lot today and traverse back to 1930. Therefore, not every lot will be traced to 1930. Appendix sections include, utility, maps, mills, post office histories - etc.< Less
