Gaston Co. NC Wills and Estates: Genealogy



Gastonia

Gaston County Wills and Estates

The first settlers to in the Catawba and Cherokee region were in the region by the mid 1700s and were of German, Dutch, English, and Scotch-Irish origin. A fort was constructed along the Catawba and South Fork Rivers, however, most of the Cherokees had left by 1770 and the Catawba Indians removed to Fort Mill, South Carolina. Gaston County was founded in 1846 and named for William Gastson, a Congressman and North Carolina Supreme Court justice. The original commissioners of the county were ordered to establish a county seat within two miles of the Long Creek Baptist Meeting House, and they named the seat Dallas, in honor of Vice President George Dallas. Yet, a popular 1911 vote made Gastonia the county seat. Bessemer City, Cherryville, High Shoals, Lowell, McAdenville, Ranlo, Stanley, Spencer, and Mount Holly are other communities within the boundaries of Gaston County. The county seat is Gastonia (pictured).

Cabarrus Co. NC - Images of Wills and Estates; Probate Records

Goldmining in North Carolina

Cabarrus 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.

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.

Beaufort Co. NC Genealogy



Pamlico River

Beaufort County Genealogy, Wills and Estates

A panoramic view of the beautiful Pamlico River. Indians were in the territory by the 1650s, two Indian tribes, the Secotan Confederation and the Pomouik Nation (called Pamlico). The first white settlers were traders who resided along the Pamlico River, some of whom took Indian wives and learned the language. The area was named Pamtecough County in 1705. The name was changed in 1712. The town of Bath was the first county seat.
