I live in Stanly County, North Carolina.The Yadkin River separates Stanly County from Montgomery County.At one time Stanly County was part of Montgomery County and both counties were once part of Anson County, NC.
There were both a James Tindall and a Richard Tindall in Montgoemry (Stanly) County in the late 1700's.In fact the Montgomery County Courthouse was located on James Tindall's land and there was a town called Tindallsville.The courthouse was located there between 1780-1788.
Tindallsville is all but gone today but it was located in what is now beautiful Morrow Mountain State Park.
The Montgomery County Heritage Committee has put out three Heritage Books and there is a great article in one of the books about James Tindall and his land, the town of Tindallsville, and the other wandering courthouses of Montgomery County, NC.
The courthouse was located at the mouth of the Uwharrie River on the Yadkin River.It is a beautiful area.
There are records in Rowan County, NC about a law suite between Henry Mounger (who first owned the land) and James Tindall.
