This book is the complete collection of Mill Petitions and law suits for Orange County, N.C. In order to dam up a stream/river to errect a mill, a petition was required to be approved by the court. This book contains these records, including the actual image, and a transcript. Also maps and pictures are provided for those mills/location that can be found today. In addition this book contains a detail suit over the George Johnston mill on New Hope Creek. A fantastic story to read, from the law suit. Updated June 2010 to add more information found in court records and some additional information from my research on Patterson Mill on New Hope Creek - which will become a standalone book. * UPDATED to add new records from court trials.
