In 1990, the Martin County Genealogical Society published “Martin County, North Carolina: Abstracts of Will Books.” I have scanned the index of the book and posted it to Scribd.com. The index is not a perfect copy, but I hope to get a better version soon.
If you identify someone of interest in the book, try locating it in a library near you. Or, you can contact me for further suggestions.
