SW portion of Lincoln/Burke County Land Grants
From the NW portion of current Catawba County and extending into the area of current Connelly Springs, in Burke County was property owned by Joseph Berry and his extended family. Eastward to the area of Conover, was the property of Devault Hunsucker. On a southward line is the SE boundary of the map, near present East Maiden. The properties westward were the the lands that were first settled in Catawba County. They lie at the juncture of Jacob Fork and the Henry River--the point at which the South fork of the Catawba River begins. This is the geographic center of thos who settled in the land, "West of the Catawba."
