Lenoir County Students at North Carolina Colleges

Did you know that the NCGenWeb Project hosts a NC Yearbook Index.  This Index lists (mostly) graduating seniors at colleges and schools across the state.  Currently, the index largely focuses on pre-1931 graduates but there are some exceptions.  Each index entry links to the full digitized yearbook online.

Deed: WHITFIELD, George to LASSITER, Jesse (1845)

Contributed by Doug Rader
15 Dec 2010

Doug acquired this “burned deed period” legal document related to the Lassiter, WHitfield and Waters families of Lenoir County, NC.  It is dated 4 March 1845, and is an agreement by George Whitfield to sell to Jesse Lassiter (“Lasitter”; both of Lenoir County) half of his lands on the Meadow and Brushy Arm Pocosin, adjacent to Jesse Waters, Haywood Waters, Josh (?) Waters, Charles Fuller and Richard Sutton. The rate was to be $3.75 per acre, paid in three equal installments; the acreage and payment schedule are not given. Witnesses are William Fields and N.W. (?) Blount.

This copy does not reflect the registration of that agreement, but probably pertains to the deed registered in burned Lenoir County Deed Book 31, page 248 (as listed in the extant cross-index to those deeds) from George Whitfield to Jesse Lassiter. (That burned deed book is reported to have covered deed registered between 1 July 1846 and December 1849, and so is consistent with the date of the agreement.)  Doug notes that there are others deeds reported among these parties in the grantor and grantee indices, including from Whitfield to Needham Waters (Book 30:11), and from Jesse Warters to Haywood Warters (Book 31:314).
