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

Despite the... More > age, the older records were not preserved. An interesting attribute for this county, is the lack of roads, due to swamps, bays, and a very large lake. It is amazing how few roads are in this county. Despite this, Hyde county has a moderate size collection spanning 4-fibred boxes. The first box was transcribed into Volume 1 providing the oldest records Box 2 (1742-1859), as well as a nice group of bridge records Box 6 (Bridge records 1748-1928). This is the second volume which includes Box 3 (1860-1909).

Volume 3, containing the modern records and undated (one folder), will finalize this collection with the last two (smaller content) boxes.< Less
