The Formation of the Counties of North Carolina

I hadn’t planned on going, mentally, into North Carolina.

I lived there for about 23 years in the western part of the state. When I got really serious about researching my father’s side of the family, I had moved away.

It was probably just as well. There wasn’t time to go to research libraries, and the internet wasn’t a big thing yet. When I was able to go to research facilities, my life had changed, and I collected paper records. Now that I have downsized, I can eliminate the paper by posting thing electronically.

I have to start somewhere on my father’s line, and I might as well start here. Most of his lines come out of North Carolina. His side, like my mother’s, have been in this country before it was a country. I have gone back as far as I can go with the paper records, yet I haven’t fleshed out his line as completely as I have my mother’s. Life got in the way.

I’m not sure where I got the following pages. I think these came from the research library in Charlotte, North Carolina. At any rate, here they are. Maybe you can use them, too.
