Subject: [DMU] NC-Wake Co Early Land Grants
The post on Georgia early land grants made me wonder if there is a
source for Wake County, NC (area south of Raleigh). A cousin sent me a
copy of a part of a hand drawn map of some early land grants around
Raleigh. The map is wonderful, showing names of early settlers that I have
seen in my research there and names of neighbors of my ancestors. This map
was a version of what I have been trying to do using Deed Mapper for the
area on both sides of Swift Creek and south. While in Raleigh a few years
ago, I copied my ancestors land records and have been working to place
them, but I need to expand that. Does anyone know of anything that would
aid me in my effort? I know I need to locate other early records to add to
the ones I copied. Deed Mapper is a great program. I have used to plot
land of my families in Walker Co, AL, Benton Co, MO and Marshall Co, IN.
North Carolina is a bit more difficult because the deeds are not available
on the BLM records or any other source on the Internet that I am aware of.
Does any one have any ideas that might help. Thank you for any help you
