MARY'S PAGE

(CHECK each county made from Rowan/Anson and others
(WE ARE MISSING INFO from these dates/years,msh) 

"Old Rowan." Rowan County was formed from Anson County in 1753.
Anson had been created out of Bladen in 1750.

AND if you know WHERE land laid = which creek/stream/river, etc, YOU, may be able to trace to next county - when they changed counties/townships also
AND new info on tracing Where land was then and now on some web sites! msh

By 1836, five counties had been carved from the original Rowan County:

Surry (1770), Burke (1777), Iredell (1788), Davidson (1822), and Davie (1836). 


Sorry to say, no marriage bond listings for Sellers/Sellars after 1850.
