HYDE COUNTY (NC) LAND DIVISIONS
IN THE EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH CENTURIES

The Hyde County Historical & Genealogical Society is pleased to announce that its publication HYDE COUNTY (NC) LAND DIVISIONS IN THE EIGHTEENTH AND NINETEENTH CENTURIES by Richard B. Lupton is now once again available from the society. The book has been out-of-print since last year. The publication is a reprint with several minor revisions by the editor. Some site visitors may not realize that this book contains detailed information, including maps, of these land divisions which often prove useful when a researcher does not know the maiden name of a female ancestor. The book is 351 pages in length and is indexed. The editor also has included an explanation of abbreviations and definitions of land measurement. He also discusses county survey evolutions, patents, waterways and roads, towns and villages, a connection with Native Americans and African-Americans and the Donnell Plantation, one of the larger ones in North Carolina of its time period. Mr. Lupton also has an interesting story of Edward Ensley: Black Phoenix and brief articles on community life, economic valuations, and agricultural anachronism. The book is available from the society book vendor, R. S. Spencer, Inc. P O Box 159, Engelhard, NC 27824, for $35 plus tax of $2.71 and shipping and handling costs of $5.00. The book vendor's e-mail is rsspencerinc@embarqmail.com. The society appreciates the generosity of Mr. Lupton in making the valuable book once again available for those interested in the history and genealogy of Hyde County.
