More > Randolph today. Therefore, old records for Randolph county land should be in either Guilford or Rowan/Orange Co. Unfortunately, Orange county deed records were destroyed (most of them) from 1752-1780. The Orange county line of 1752 is about 9-miles west of today’s Guilford/Alamance or Randolph/Chatham. Any further west, you have to go to Rowan County. Randolph has just one box of miscellaneous records, and 3-boxes of Ejectments. The ejectment records will be transcribed in standalone volumes. At this point in time, only the first (and oldest) box of ejectments is scheduled. This collection is priceless for land researchers. Why? Because the plats show a lot of information that may never be fully understood without the picture – especially rivers and streams.< Less

This deception was likely caused by the image my grandfather wanted to portray as a young highly respected school principal and someone far above the standards of a typical bachelor in those times.

More > the blood of a few hundred local citizens. Nearly 100 Tory soldiers were killed, with another 100 taken prisoner, wounded, or unaccounted.For generations historians have pondered what really happened at this killing field without any real depth of rationality. Some have just simply replaced fact with convenient speculation of where the hacking actually took place. Our answer to these contemporaries, and their agendas, is the comprehensive presentation in this work, of the letters, memoirs, and field notes of the men who participated. Besides the insight gained from these writings, we provide the reader the proper locations and mileage by plotting the actual routes. It was not our wish when we started this project to revise history, but to correct the myths that have been perpetuated since 1849.< Less
