[Editor's Note: While we can't be certain that these are in fact signers of the Randolph County petition we have been unable to locate a similar one for Moore County during the same time frame. Some of these names appear to be actual signatures while others are clearly written by the same person as other names around them. The Randolph County petition suffered from similar challenges including some signers that would be under 21 years old. Regardless, this is quite a list of northern Moore County residents during the late 1780's.]
