IVANHOE =
Located about 40 miles northwest of Wilmington in Sampson County, the area was settled by Scotsmen migrating up Black River in the early 1700s.
Black River is a beautiful and serene river that drifts lazily through the village. It forms in Sampson County by the junction of Six Runs Creek and the Coharie River and flows on the Bladen/Sampson County line, the Bladen/Pender County line, and into Pender County before dumping into Cape Fear River at the New Hanover County line.

In 1750 the northern part of NEW HANOVER CO, which extended westward to SOUTH RIVER (called BLACK RIVER at that time) became the new county of Duplin. The original western boundary of DUPLIN CO was Little Coharie Creek. This left a narrow strip of land between Little Coharie and South River as part of New Hanover Co. This strip was added to Duplin Co in 1751.
The original southern boundary of Duplin ran from the mouth of ROCKFISH CREEK in the Northeast Cape Fear River in a direct line to the fork of Black River, where Coharie and SIX RUNS come together and then ran west to South River.
In 1766, the south boundary was altered to run along Rockfish Creek to the mouth of Doctor's Creek and then a direct line to the fork of Black River.
In 1784 the western part of Duplin Co became Sampson Co.
The southern boundary of Sampson Co has been extended several times, including the addition of a small section between South River and Black River in 1795, to achieve the present day boundary (max r. peterson, jr, abstracts of Sampson Co.deeds)
=====

Remember some of the names have changed over the years in the early land deeds. What is now BLACK RIVER was once called COHARIE
and SOUTH RIVER was once called BLACK RIVER.
and also, many CREEKS have the same name.
Often a branch was referred to by the name of the person who owned land adjoining it. ,msh

FROM CAROLE = CWeiss4042@aol.com
I came across a notebook entry made long ago from the New Hanover County
Deed Book Vol. L-1 p.400
Patent for William Priggen  150 acres
"being in the county of Brunswick on the South West side of Buckel Swamp"
16 Nov 1790 Registered 27 Apr 1797

I can give the complete description if wanted.
Could this be old man Wm?

    I also came across two entries from a Homestead Book I found in the
courthouse.   p.68   "James J. Pridgen resident of county...13 April 1819
& lay off a Homestead not to exceed $1000"

p.70 "John F. Pridgen resident of county...13 April 1819...133
acres..other tract 55 acres"...registered 19 April 1819

Does any one have these?

Can anyone give me information on these people ???? I found this yesterday and am trying to identify a CHARITY married to Isaac MCDONALD in New Hanover NC., time frame about 1760 - mid 1800's.
Does anyone know what this "Act for Relief" is ??? I've searched for about 6 years now and this just now showed up! Any helpor guidance would be greatly appreciated - this is a major brick wall- I feel certain this is my connection!! My Isaac McDonald was a River Pilot I think in the Cape Fear area. Thanks very much, Samantha

New Hanover County, NC - Charlotte McDonald - Act for Relief ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ An Act for the relief of Charlotte McDonald Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of North Carolina, and it is hereby enacted by the authority of the same, That immediately from and after the passage of this act, Charlotte McDonald, late of the county of New Hanover, and widow of Isaac McDonald, late a pilot on Cape Fear river, be, and she is hereby discharged from any punishment to which she may be liable on conviction, by reason of having intermarried with a certain Simon Sellers, during the lifetime of the said Isaac McDonald; any law, usage, or custom to the contrary notwithstanding.

       From:
            "Ava Healy" <alhealy@hotmail.com>

For those of you who cannot find members of Bethlehem Baptist at the Church
cemetery, I have the following from Vol. III of McEachern's Pender listings:

PRIDGEN GRAVEYARD:  County #1103 2 and 3/10 [sic]
miles off #1103, turn right, then 2/10 mile to graveyard.

A. L. Pridgen:  5 Oct 1844 - 25 Oct 1930

Margaret A., wife of W.S. Pridgen:  14 Jan 1808 - 23 July 1903, "Member of Bethlehem
Baptist Church."

William S. Pridgen"  9 Jun 1811 - 15 Feb 1897, "Member of Bethlehem Baptist Church
about 60 years."

William Stephen Pridgen and Margaret Annie Larkens are on our website, but not the
cemetery information or their children.  If Rebecca concurs, maybe we could post
them.  According to the 1850 NC New Hanover Census, roll 638, p. 363, side 1,  their
children were:
    Emily, age 11
    Melvin, age 10
    Daniel, age 8
    Alfred, age 7 (probably the A.L. above)
    Hannah A., age 5
    Octavia, age 3
    Mary, age 1.

Will check 1860 Census when I can get to library.  Ava Healy.
