Digital Images of Cabarrus Co. NC Wills

Cabarrus County Court House Records

Goldmining in North CarolinaCabarrus 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.
