Anson County at one time included all of western and central North Carolina--practically all of the "Back County." This work attempts to identify the lion’s share of the county's residents prior to 1790, and as many as 6,500 Anson County inhabitants are listed herein. The abstracts are presented in record groups under the following headings: land grants, land grant surveys, deeds, county court minutes, civil suits, wills, probate reports, and petitions.
