Concerning Hofmann's "North Carolina Abstracts of State Grants" series...
Volume One contains Grant Book 28 through Grant Book 33
Volume Two contains Grant Book 34 through Grant Book 38
The web site for Mrs. Hofmann
This site has a list of all Mrs. Hofmann's books as well as books
she sells for other people.
She also has a toll free phone line which is 800-455-8891
There are several counties covered in each Grant Book
This is a partial quote from George Stevenson, Private Manuscripts
Archivist, North Carolina State Archives dated October 13, 1998 (from the
General Introduction to the State Grants books):
"In the three hundred year history of the land office the volumes have been
numbered and renumbered and the loose papers rearranged more than once.
The final arrangement and renumbering were put into numbered "shuck" files and a
comprehensive grantee card index was made for all the volumes and the loose
papers...." then "...
Consequently, though Mrs. Hofmann has commenced with the lowest numbered
state grant book, L.G.B.28, and has continued on with each succeeding volume,
one is going to find whole blocks junior grants
appearing before their seniors.
It cannot be helped, for the books can no
longer be restored to their correct order without pulling to pieces the
whole apparatus of numbered volumes, shucked files, and comprehensive card
In the end, as Mrs. Hofmann publishes her abstracts with their
personal and geographical name indexes, the awkwardness of the present
numbering system will be overcome by her work."
PEARCE FAMILY BOOK
I've just completed my new Pearce book that includes bunches of other families, like
Foy, Whitfield, McCoy, Hardison, Grimes, etc. etc... It's basically my line of Pearces
from out of Duplin as they crossed the border into Pender. Been researching it now
for gobs and gobs of time... found a good publisher that can do it as a download
(Ebook) or as a printed book. Can order it online. Really cool system. Anyhow, just
wanted to let you know it was available now.
Good luck searchin'!

Duplin County, NC. The first seven generation to the early 1900s is
