Paperback: $20.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Bladen County was formed in 1734 from New Hanover. Bladen is a very old Colonial county, and this author was expecting to find a treasure of old documents. Instead, the most modern records this... More > author has transcribed are contained in this volume. Almost all of the records are typed, therefore needing no transcription work, save a few names, places, and cataloging for the vast majority of these records. The box as documented by the archives includes “bridge” in this collection, but this author did not find any. Also the box documented records beginning in 1901 and the box contains a ferry records from 1896. Bladen was reduced in size (like all of the old colonial counties), birthing, Anson (1750), Brunswick (1764), Columbus (1808), Cumberland (1754), Orange (1752), and Robeson (1787) counties.< Less

Chapel Hill, NC - History of Town Lots (1790-1930s) By Stewart Dunaway
Paperback: $35.95
Ships in 3-5 business days.
The objective of this book (like the one for Hillsborough) is to document the individual town lots for Chapel Hill. However, unlike Hillsborough, the town was not platted with hundreds of lots, all... More > the same size, in an ever expanding process. The town lots of Chapel Hill were sold for funds to build and operate the University (again showing the duality of the early mission). This book contains deed records pertaining to houses and businesses in Chapel Hill. The deeds are chained together (as best possible) to show a particular lot's history. Is every lot and piece of land covered in this book? NO. However, a very large collection is included. Is every lot traversed from 1790 to 1930? NO. Some lots have breaks, where I could not trace it. The focus is on the OLD records. It is rather easy to take a lot today and traverse back to 1930. Therefore, not every lot will be traced to 1930. Appendix sections include, utility, maps, mills, post office histories - etc.< Less
