Author – Stewart Dunaway

Call Number – NC COLL 975.601 DUNAWAY

Book Description -

Richmond County Road Records (1778-1826) contain some older records, yet, past the 18th century, the records become more prolific, still providing some insight to early routes. The bridge records for this county were separated and were preserved from 1790 until 1897. Also included in this box is a nice collection of ferry (1784 - 1857) and mill records (1790-1875), which are included in the first volume for this county. Richmond was formed in 1779 from part of Anson County. It will remain intact with these original boundaries until 1899, when Scotland County is formed from part of its eastern side. Anson was formed from the western part of Bladen County in 1750, and then will be divided up a number of times to form other counties, Rowan (1753), Mecklenburg (1762), Montgomery (1779), Richmond (1779), and Union (1842). This is the second of three volumes, to continue transcribing Richmond's three-box (roads) collection of records

Title – Robeson County North Carolina Road Records

Author – Stewart Dunaway

Call Number – NC COLL 975.602 DUNAWAY

Book Description -

Robeson County Road, Bridge, and Mill Records contain a very nice collection of county records, although nothing from the 18th century. Robeson County was formed in 1787, from Bladen County. Blade was a very old and massive territory with an undefined western boundary. Unfortunately, Bladen road records were not preserved from its early 18th century era either. Robeson County was never subdivided. Despite these records being rather modern, this is a nice collection of roads, bridges, and mills. This is the largest single volume of records.
