Currituck County Wills
[Note: There does not appear to be a will for Mathias W. WILSON in the Currituck County will books, but a will is mentioned for him in the minutes of the Currituck County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. It's possible that a will might be found among the records of the Edenton District Superior Court c. March 1814].
