    I have been mapping State Land Grants in the Cane Creek area. I have located MANY grants for Joshua Hadley. His first two land purchases were Aug 1771 from Charles Landrum and second – Aug 1772 Benjamin Landrum (which was a Granville Grant of 1761). There are other Hadley purchases from Jeremiah and Joshua – which obviously had to be a son. Today this land is located in the county-line area of Southern Alamance Co. and Northern Chatham Co.
