GENEALOGY,  VOLUME VIII, no. 2, June 1962.  By William Perry Johnson,  

Editor.  These are older than the ones listed on the last crate as you can tel

by the dates.  Information was edited by a professional genealogist who  

accumulated the materials to assist him in the work he did for fellow  

genealogists. This is a completely different set of numbers, different subjects,  

abstracted and compiled by a different person covering many counties in  

North Carolina.  June, 1962, number 30 complete.  Pp. 958-988, 3-hole

punched bound issue, stapled.  Editor's Page.  This issue has Bladen County  

Deeds 1734-1778, 11 pages; "A Hot Toddy, Anyone?"  lists Tavern Rates in  

1785 - Said hot toddy made with Norward Rum, per quart was one shilling,  

Dinner with no less than two dishes was 2 shillings, Good hay for each horse

per night was 8 pence, [an English coin of lesser value than a shilling],

stabling for a horse was 4 pence, lodging per night was 6 pence per person.  

Now a hot toddy made with W(es?)t. Indies rum, loaf sugar and nutmeg, per  

quart was 1 shilling + 6 pence while a good gin and French brandy was 1  

shilling +4 pence, or you could get a good country brandy for just 1 shilling.   

Prices had to be posted in every pub, were set and mandated by the court,  

loss of license was the penalty for not abiding by this government enforced  

price fixing! Then six pages of N.C. Inventories of Estates 1677-1784. The  

inventory of a deceased person's property and personal effects, upon his  

death without a will, had to be made and recorded before a sale could be held

and the estate could be divided according to law.

There is lots of information in an inventory about a persons occupation and  

lifestyle, to be gathered from the tools, furniture, etc. he owned.  There is a  

listing of the heads of families which were gathered for the 1800 census,  

pp. 347-396.  [not in alphabetical order, but listed by page number, 5 typed  

Asheets!  North Carolina State Department of  Archives and History 1 Feb. to

books added.  A list of court fees charged for matters handled by the court  

(interesting to lawyers) Marriage License and Bond cost 8 shillings, Inventory

or account of sale cost-if under 100 pounds 2 shillings; if over 100 pounds 4  

shillings.  Guardian & Other Bonds cost 6 shillings. No item cost a pound or  

more!  Nice advertisements for a Trueblood Genealogy, Hardy, Newby, Garrard

and Russell sources of information and books on these names.  [I would like  

to own the Newby one by Nancy Hineman of Spiceland, Indiana, because my

husband's Newby families are in that book.] Four pages of detailed queries

finish this issue. PRICE two volumes and the index sold together as a set.
