Contributed by Bill Vanlandingham    Posted October 15, 2007 by Myrtle Bridges

"Robeson County was formed January 1, 1789 from Bladen County, a part of Bladen at that time was ceded to Cumberland county,
The northern line of Bladen was formerly the Earl of Granvilles southern  Line, A line of Latitude just above the Rockfish Creek.
Most of the Grant entries (plats, warrants, below) are available from the NC Archives. I am trying to establish the location of the
property of William Brafford, this listing may help everyone if we share information.
