Caswell County was formed from Orange County in 1777. This book documents the road petitions from 1785 to 1872. In addition I have included the 1777-1785 Court Of Pleas records as well. Included for... More > each record is a photo copy of the original, with a transcription of the details surrounding the road information. There are a few maps that were included with the petitions, as seen on the covers. Each record has a title which is in the table of contents, and the book is completely indexed. NOTE, there are a lot of names, and spelling of names and transcribing signatures is a massive project. This book does NOT represent the transcription of every name on a piece of paper. In all the country records I have imaged, Caswell road records are in the worse shape. The Bridge records are in a separate book.< Less

This is the last of the three volumes of Guilford County road and bridge records. This volume, like the others, includes images of the record, a transcript of its content. Some records have maps from... More > period times and a few with modern maps showing these old locations. I found that the Guilford County records have some interesting historical information about the times, areas etc. This volume includes the time-frame when the NC Railroad was being built and the impact to the roads were two fold. First you have people wanting to change the routes due to the railroad and then people wanted a road from their village to the DEPOT! Some mention business as the reason. Never the less, these records expose more than just complaints.< Less

This is the first in a series of books documenting road and bridge petitions for Guilford County, N.C. This book is written more for the researcher than as a historical book to read. The location of... More > roads and bridges is critical in establishing locations of events, places or people, since they didnt live, eat, shop, go to the mill etc., without traveling some road. These court records reside in the Archives of N.C. at Raleigh. This is NOT an exhaustive content, in that, there were records that have signatures and text not explaining locations as well as numerous overseer records that I did NOT include. This book has the image of the record and a short transcript pertaining to the location. This is indexed and there is a table of content so that each record (title given) can be easily found. There are some period maps showing locations, and a few modern views as well.< Less
