Washington County, North Carolina: Abstracts of Deed Books A-B-C (1799-1814)
By Linda Haas Davenport

Washington County, North Carolina, was formed in 1799. Its courthouse
burned three times (1862, 1873, and 1881) and only the deed records
were saved each time. Linda Haas Davenport has abstracted the 958
individual deeds found in Deed Books A, B, and C, covering the years
1799-1814, and many deeds from earlier years are scattered throughout
the books.

For the researcher's convenience, Davenport has indexed the names in
the deeds under four different categories: "surnames," "females,"
"slaves," and "things and places." This book is a unique and
indispensable tool for Washington County researchers.
