      From Eric Newsom:

      Copies of the marriage bonds of Morris Roberts and Josiah Roberts, from the original bonds held in the North Carolina Archives, Rutherford Count
      "State of North Carolina Rutherford County. William McSwain James Linsay We the subscribers are jointly and severally held firmly bound to Benjamin Williams, Esq Governor or his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money. The condition of this obligation is such that whereas the said Morris Roberts hath made application for a license for a marriage to the be celebrated between him and Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid; now in case it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be paid otherwise remain in full force and virtue. William McSwain (seal) James Linsey (seal). ?? and delivered in the presence of ??Eilkins. 4 of February 1804"

      "Rutherford County We the subscribers are jointly and severally held and firmly bound to James Turner Esq governor of North Carolina and his successors in office in the sum of five hundred pounds current money to be void on condition that whereas--Josiah Roberts hath made application and obtained license for marriage to be celebrated between the said Josiah Roberts--and Miss Mary Linsey--of the county aforesaid now if it shall not appear hereafter that there is any lawful reasons or cause to obstruct said marriage then this obligation to be void and of none effect otherways remain in full force and virtue in law Sealed and Acknowledged this 1st day of September Anno Domini 1803. Attest Wm. McBrayer. Josiah Roberts (seal) Morris Roberts (seal)." There is no question that Josiah Roberts was the son of Morris Roberts. Morris by gift deed in 1800 gave land "to son Josiah for love and affection..." I have a copy of this deed. Eric Newsom

      and posted on the LINDSAY-L mailing list Vol 99 #278, by Bob Jordan:

      Subject: Durham-Carlton - Surry Co. NC
      Date: Thu, 21 Oct 1999 21:30:08 -0500 (EST)
      From: (Robert Jordan)

      Found another relationship between these two families in Surry Co. NC - they held land next to James Lindsey Sr. The following deed contains the metes and bounds and is as complete as I could copy. Brief explanation of the measurements - one chain = 66 feet, one pole = 16.5 feet, N45W means half way between north and west. There are 90 degrees between north and west, so start at north and go 45 degrees to the west.

      DB E-451, dated 11 Aug 1789: Indenture between John Durham of Spartingburg (Spartanburg) SC and (to) Lindsey Carlton of Surry Co. NC for 10pds. - land in Surry Co. near the round hill on waters of the N Fork of Deep Creek beginning at a stake, then N70W five poles to a stake, north 51 chains to a stake, west 20 chains to the branch, then down sd branch to the mouth to a Spanish Oak, then by a marked line agreed on to a Turkey Oak and 143 poles then continued on near the same as was along the sd. marked line 66 poles to the begining - containing 100 acres. Signed John Durham. Witnesses Simon Hadley, Jcob Dobbins. Date on the record was 8 May 1789. Recorded by oath of Dobbins May, 1790.

      This is one of the worst surveying jobs found in the records, but it has the same spot locations as one of James Lindsey's deeds. Thus, these people had land next to each other. The normal going rate for this type of land was about 60-70 pounds Sterling. The reason this type of money was used (English) was that each state had their own currency. The cost of this land was 10 pounds - showing that it was discounted greatly - usually for family members. There are two dates on this deed. Aug 1789 and May 1789. I would think the deed was written in SC in May and entered SC in August and someone hand carried it to Surry Co. The deed was actually recorded one year later.
