More > Co.). Older records documenting Jonesboro and Sanford will be in Moore County and in modern times Lee Co. This collection includes one of the best collections of modern bridge records in the archives. Detailed drawings of these steel bridges were preserved. Also in this county collection is a modest size of mill records. However, the large quantity of pages, are due to a very lengthy and detailed law suit. Therefore, this isn’t a broad coverage of many mills, but one mill with a lot of legal paperwork. It should also be pointed out that there were no road petitions, but there was a box of overseer appointments (Order – 068.925.4) dating from 1875 to 1895. They are NOT included in this book. (Note: the bridge and mill records are contained in the miscellaneous county records)< Less
