Cabarrus Co. North Carolina Genealogy Records: Images of Wills and Estates



Goldmining in North CarolinaCabarrus County Court House Records

Cabarrus county was formed from Mecklenburg County in 1792, and was named after Stephen Cabarrus of Chowan County, Speaker of the North Carolina House of Commons. Conrad Reed found gold here in 1799 while playing in Little Meadow Creek on the old Reed farm. His find weighed a hefty 17 pounds! John Reed or Johannes Rieth as he was known in Staatsarchiv at Marburg, Germany was one of thousands of Hessian soldiers transported over by British troops to fight against rebellious colonists during the Revolutionary War. John Reed deserted, as did many other Hessians, and migrated from Georgia to North Carolina, where he settled in an ethnic German community sometime around 1787. Reed developed placer mining, then underground mining on his property and became wealthy, his mine being known as Reed's Gold Mine. The Reed Gold Mine was designated as a National Historic Landmark. The names of the testators in the last will and testaments below appear to be of German origin, undoubtably descendants of the Hessian soldiers.

Burke Co. NC Wills and Estates: Genealogy, Ancestors

Burke County Genealogy and Probate Records



Burke County North Carolina Burke County North Carolina Burke County North Carolina Mountain scenes in Burke County, North Carolina. Burke county was formed from Rowan County in 1777 and was named after Thomas Burke, a delegate to the Continental Congress from 1777 to 1781. Also, he served as Governor of the State of North Carolina from 1781 to 1782. Most of this region was settled by many Scots-Irish and German immigrants. In 1791, parts of Burke County and Rutherford County were combined to form Buncombe County. In 1833, Yancey County was formed from parts of Burke County and Buncombe County. In 1841, parts of Burke County and Wilkes County formed Caldwell Conty and during 1842 additional parts of Burke County and Rutherford County were combined to make McDowell County. Finally, in 1861, parts of Burke County, Caldwell County, McDowell County, Watauga County and Yancey County were combined to form Mitchell County. . Burke County citizens participated in the Battle of Kings Mountain which pitted Appalachian frontiersmen against the loyalist forces of the British commander Ferguson at Kings Mountain, South Carolina during the American Revolution, and were called "Over the Mountain Men" because the militia men did not wait bur crossed over the Blue Ridge mountains to engage the fight.

The earliest records of Burke County is a problem to genealogists because the ink in the will book dating from 1793 faded beyond recognition.

How much Research is enough?

While scanning a number of old North Carolina Wills located in the Office of the Secretary of State, I have observed that most of these records are not listed in the book Abstracts of North Carolina Wills by Olds.  The question then arises, does the researcher need to examine the local county records as well as those kept by the Secretary of State?  It would seem so.  In some instances, typed transcriptions were made and the old dim, barely visible document placed beside it.  Fading ink and crumbling paper is always an issue in preservation.  Actually, it looks like the india ink survives the paper it is written on.  Torn and frayed documents are pasted together in little pieces and microfilmed. There is a good chance that the last will and testament of your ancestor exists, but it is worn away with age.  Although the faded images are more readable on the average computer than a scanning device, we still have a long-suffering need for new technology to bring the ink impression to the surface and restore the "actual" script.  Surely, this day will come!
