Here are documents I paid a researcher to copy from the Univ. of N. Carolina Manuscript Dept in the Mrs. Harvey Boney Collection.
I'd love it if you could post this information to the website with a little blurb that if anyone has any information about this Collins family in Duplin county between 1750-1770 to please contact me.
It's been very difficult for me to find much Duplin County info during this time period. I could use any and all help tracking these Collins men.
Let me know if you want further info.

Registered in the Registers of the office of Duplin in Book A Folio 235 Per James Sampson, Register

NOTES: Sd appears to be an abbreviation for said. Note from transcriber (Montgomery Wolf): I proofread the transcription carefully. The spellings accurately reflect the document to the best of my abilities. Where difficult to read or if I didnít understand the meaning of the word, i.e., the word didnít seem to make sense in context, I included the notation (?). There is little punctuation in this document, a common occurrence in the 18th century.

Other documents in file: Deed granting Michael Glisson plat of land. Other names mentioned: Matthews, Carter Portion of contract of sale having to do with Michael Glisson 1802 sale of the above piece of property [I think] to or from Windle Davis and/or Samuel Davis
