An Abstract of North Carolina Wills, 1760-1800
Author: Fred Olds
Published: 2001 reprint of 1925 original
Paperback, 328 pages
Olds continued the earlier work of J. Bryan Grimes in abstracting the state wills, but he also included a good many wills before 1760 to which Grimes did not have access. The abstracts are arranged alphabetically under each county by the names of the testators, with the dates of the wills and the names of wives and children.
