ALSO the reader needs to be aware that Stokes County will be carved up losing its southern part to the formation of Forsythe (1849) Co. Therefore, the records in this book will use rivers and locations that reside in both counties – today. Stokes County has the largest collection of road and bridge records for the entire state. Ten boxes contain records from the 18th century well into the modern times of the 20th century. This is the sixth and final volume – and needs to be alongside the researcher – as this book might contain a companion (or missing) document which did not have a date – thus placed in this “catch all” collection of – No Dates.< Less
