Caswell County Tavern Bonds is the largest county collection in the state archives (Raleigh). Although theses licenses were renewed yearly, it clearly documents the Ordinaries in this county. Since... More > these bonds are dated from 1777, this will include Person County, which was carved out of the eastern half of Caswell in 1791. I have included database tables sorted by location, and name, so that it will be easier to see a summary of the information within this LARGE collection. A few bonds include locations (towns) of the Ordinary (term for a Tavern), although most bonds defined the Ordinaries as being in their homes. Caswell County was carved out of (northern) Orange County in 1777.< Less

Lenoir County, N.C. - Road Records - Vol 2 - (1906-1921) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Lenoir County was formed in 1791 from Dobbs County (Dobbs was formed in 1758 and abolished in 1791). Despite the age, the older records were not preserved. Lenoir was never reduced in size since its... More > formation.The first volume (published in 2013) has the first box of road records (1878-1904) and includes ferry and bridge records. Also included in the first volume was one folder of mill records from 1906. This volume completes this county collection, by finalizing the road records from 1906 to 1921 and one folder of undated records. Sadly, these records contain primarily receipts and vouchers pertaining to road work (and bridge repairs) for the county – as opposed to petitions etc. However, this book provides great insight into the shift of effort – away from petitions to a county maintenance process. BECAUSE of the MANY detailed receipts, I did NOT photograph everyone on in this box (e.g. receipt for a box of nails).Therefore, if you are researching or auditing these records – STOP. Go to the archives.< Less
