Paperback: $30.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is the second and final volume containing records from one box as preserved in the State Archives. Unfortunately, the quantity of records in this box demands two volumes, as well as these... More > records being Stored by type and not just in date order. This will demand both volumes and probably the need to go between them; as the petition might be in volume 1, and the jury report in volume 2. Alleghany County was formed in 1859 from Ashe County, and borders the Virginia-North Carolina State line. Ashe County resides to the immediate west, and Surry County on the east. Ashe County was formed from Wilkes in 1799, and Wilkes from Surry in 1777. Therefore, road records before 1859 will reside in Ashe County (already transcribed by this author). Alleghany County was never subdivided and remains the same since formation.< Less
