Land Grants & Deeds


This page provides a pictorial view of the original land grants of Burke and Lincoln Counties. This land became Catawba County after the formation in 1842.

I am deeply indebted to Dr. J. C. Smith, Emeritus Assoc Professor, Civil Engineering Dept.,
N. C. State University for his generous donation of this research material to the public domain.
