I came across a deed that may be of interest to folks on this forum.
Buncombe County, NC deed book 12, page 165 lists (in the usual early unpunctuated fashion) the following names:
[dated February 18, 1817]
John B. Earle John Lewis for himself & wife Nancy William Hannon for himself & wife Elizabeth Edwin Hannon for himself & wife Caroline M. George M. Earle Joseph B. Earle William Prince for himself & wife Lydia M Silas Whitten for himself & wife Eleanor Laban P. Pool for himself & wife Letty Amarillis Earle "E. Badul for and Harriet Harrison Earle" [that's really how it reads.Might be "Radul" - it's very scribbly]
"all heirs and representatives of Col. John Earle late of Rutherford County deceased"
the deed conveys property to Matthew Mayburn, based on a paper found inColonel Earle's effects.The deed mentions a slave and property on Green River.
I did not transcribe the deed in full, because I'm not related to the Earles.I copied the above because I can't stand to let a list of heirs go by without putting it ona message board.I have no other info on the Earles.
