Transylvania County Wills & Estate Records 

 

Transcribers:

Linda O. Anders
Philip Underwood-Sheppard
Transylvania County wills are located at the Clerk of Courts Office in Brevard, North Carolina.  "Will Book 1" isn't exactly.  This is a narrow folder with photocopied records from an unknown source provided by North Carolina State Archives.  Despite its odd appearance, it is indexed along with the more traditional will books. Finding it is difficult at best.  Sometimes you can find it on top of the cabinet holding the remainder of the older record books for the county.  Sometimes you can't find it.  Fortunately, the wills contained in it have been transcribed by Philip Underwood-Sheppard and are included here.  

Transylvania County estate records dating from 1810 to 1951 are located at North Carolina State archives.  An index is located at:  http://www.ah.dcr.state.nc.us/sections/archives/arch/FindingAids/Transylvania.htm .   When requesting estate records please include the name date, and the accession number that beings "C. R."
