Per the book used as a guide by the NC Archives
staff, "North Carolina Research, Genealogy and
Local History" (2nd Edition) by Helen F. M. Leary,
C.G., F.A.S.G. Editor, page 375:
Volume XI begins with a very useful series of
nearly 3,000 claims for civil and military
services rendered by North Carolinians from 1776
to 1780. This portion comprises about
one-third of Volume XI and is an incomplete
version of one of the lettered volumes (Book B).
the remaining two-thirds of the book are
disappointing in the extreme, for that portion
reports only the name of the payee, the number of
the voucher and the amount. There is no
heading to these accounts to explain what they
were for; there is no date; there is no hint as to
the geographical location. this portion of the
Account Book may as well be a census of
inhabitants of the planet Mars.
However, a careful study of this list shows many
of the names (about 1/3) are familiar to Randolph
County researchers as those men who settled on
land now located in today's Randolph County.
Therefore, it is easy to conclude this is a list
of Orange County, NC, County Commissioners.
