North Carolina Boundary Disputes involving her Southern Line


By: Marvin L. Skaggs, Pub. 1941, reprinted 2023, 250 pages, Index, soft cover, ISBN #978-1-63914-149-4.  Controversy or boundary disputes have followed many states from their colonial days forward.  These issues are important to the development of the state.  All of this is important for the genealogists when researching persons along these boundary lines.  North Carolina was not immune to these disputes.  She actually had disputes with South Carolina and Georgia.  This work follows these disputes from the Propriety period to its progress though the reign of George II to its extension into the mountains.  This controversy continued on to independent statehood with fruitless negotiations, settlements, modified agreements and new surveys.
