However, none of the old records were preserved by the county court. In addition, the reader needs to be aware that in the county card catalog (N.C. State Archives) does not have any road, bridge, mill, ferry, or ordinary records listed. Yet, in the very back – under the CRX tab – is one entire box of road records, and a second miscellaneous box containing two folders of bridge records. NOTE: the bridge records are contained in a separate book (due to the size of the road collection).< Less

Miscellaneous N.C. – Road, Bridge, and Mill CRX Records (1767-1937) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $20.95

The State Archives houses all county court documents, as given by the courts. However, some documents did not originate from the courthouse. For whatever reason, some “official”... More > documentation found its way into private hands or former (retired) county agents. When these documents surfaced, and are given to the Archives – they are NOT integrated into the existing county collection. They are segregated into a CRX catalog (at the back of each county index file-drawer). Therefore, I went through every county, looking for Road, Bridge, Mill, Ordinary, and Ferry records. Simply put, there are two types of collections, folders and boxes. Folders being a small collection, and boxes, literally the same size as a normal county collection. Only three counties had large (boxes) collections, Macon Co. (2-boxes), Rowan Co. (one box), and Beaufort (one box and one folder). All the remaining counties were small folder-size collections. Therefore they do not warrant a standalone volume, and are included in this book.< Less
