Abstract of North Carolina Wills, 1663 - 1760
Abstract of North Carolina Wills [1663-1760]. J. Bryan Grimes. (1910).
This invaluable work of reference contains abstracts of every will found in the office of the Secretary of State of North Carolina. While it covers the period 1663 to 1760, it does contain a few later wills. The work is arranged alphabetically according to the name of the testator. The abstracts give the name of the testator, place of residence, names of wife, children, legatees, witnesses, and probate officers, names of plantations mentioned, and remarkable items or noteworthy passages in wills. The extensive 200-page index contains all the names mentioned in the will abstracts--nearly 20,000! An appendix containing indexes to each of the will books is yet another outstanding feature of this monumental work. "A valuable work that goes back to the very beginning of records in this State..."--Wm. D. Kizziah, "Sources of North Carolina Research," in DAR Magazine [December 1961].
