Watauga County, N.C. - Road Records (1867-1884) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $32.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Watauga County was formed in 1849 from parts of Ashe, Wilkes, Caldwell, and Yancey County. If you were to look at this county’s formation like a descendants tree, the oldest records would be... More > Wilkes (ignoring Rowan) then Ashe (1799), followed by Yancey (1833) and Caldwell (1841). Yet, even Watauga was reduced in size when Mitchell County was formed in 1861 (as well as parts of many other counties). Then in modern times Avery County was formed from part of Watauga in 1911 (along with other counties). Despite all of these changes, this county preserved a lot of material housed in four fibred boxes. This book contains records from the first two boxes. The third and fourth box contain more modern records, as well as records being filed by title – such as a law suit (over a road) etc. In Box 3 there was a bridge contract which is included in this book. There was not a dedicated box (or folder) pertaining to bridges. In addition this volume does NOT include all of the overseer appointment records.< Less
