    1785 Petition, Randolph County, NC and Moore County, NC
    1785 Petition, Randolph County, NC and Moore County, NC
    1785, Dec 6 -- Petition, Nov 1785-Dec 1785 General Assembly Session Records, Box 1 Folder 7
    Only the petition was included. No details but speculation is that it was a petition to erect a courthouse in the center of Randolph County, NC. Signers: [selected signers from Randolph County page 1 and 3] William Reader, John Graves, Evachel Hancock, John Lawley, Elisha Lawley, Uriah Wright and Nathanl. Tucker. The names listed on the second page are largely from Moore County and are listed in their entirety: Isaac Dun, William Dunn, William Smith, Bartholomew Dunn, John McAulay, Alexander Morrison, George Grimes, Bartholomew Dunn Junr., Normand McLeod, Nicolas Newton Senr., Allan Morison, Malcom McLeod, John Kees, George Ceagle [Cagle], Thomas Kees, Nathanyel Melton, William Kees, Richard Dunn Junr., Moses Keys, William Keys, Benja.

[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.]
