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

Rose, a friend for a very short time, had died as a result of cancer. No mystery there, but shortly afterwards Rose’s only son, just 12 years old is killed in a terrible auto accident. Even... More > before his death, there was talk of a ‘spirit or ghost’ appearing in Rose’s house. Maree had failed in her efforts to contact this ‘ghost’ because family members were in denial.

She says then they ‘just come to her and solve the mystery’, she is only the human vessel. A wonderful paranormal mystery with character.< Less
