Trying to locate the Arney Plantation in Lincoln County, NC
I'm trying to locate the "Arney plantation" in Lincoln County, North Carolina

Now, in researching Lincolnton (and Lincoln County, North Carolina, in general), I have learned a few things.
For instance, by the time all was said and done, Lincoln County was reduced to 10 miles in width, and an average 30 miles in length.
Lincolnton, was therefore 1-1/2 miles from the Catawba County line, to the North, and 4-1/2 miles from the Gaston County line, to the South.
Which left Lincolnton, about 4 miles in width (North to South).
Also, part of Lincolnton, became known as "Boger City".
In the area of Lincolnton-Boger City, there is an "Arney Street", which runs West to East, and is bound by "Hubbard Street" on the West, and "Lawing Street" on the East.
This makes me wonder if the Arney Plantation was near this area, because we know that Christian "Christy" Arney, Sr. owned several lots in Lincolnton.
