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 formation. Despite the loss of all 18th century records, this county collection at least has records from roads, bridge, mills and some ferries. MOST OF THESE RECORDS are in the form of bills/receipts for activities, such as ferry work, turning a bridge, repairing a bridge etc. As opposed to a lot of petitions for a bridge, a contract for a bridge etc. Nevertheless, this book covers a lot of activity and for the first time, a number of medical excuses for people not to work on the road - including a Confederate Solider badly wounded.
