Importations from Abroad to Orange County, Va.

I pulled these two sheets from LDS Microfilm Number 0954248, Cumberland County, N.C. Court Records, 
Item 16.  The title was Importations from Abroad to Orange County, Va.  I don't know why these would 
appear under Cumberland County, N.C. Records, but I thought you might like to have them.  The labor 
force in Cumberland County, may have been supplied by people in Orange County, Va.  We had a Lazarus 
Creel, 1755, in Cumberland, at about the same time Charles Creel appears in Orange County, VA.  There 
may have been a business connection between the two counties.  What's nice about these two sheets is 
that the country of origin is shown in some cases, which may be helpful to some researchers. Jeanne Creel.
