Ancestral Tracks

Court minutes are certainly some of the most under appreciated yet revealing public records a researcher can use. No other record gives us a slice of life across all levels of society like the minutes of the County courts. It's all here -- from boundary disputes to family disputes, from trials for murder to trails for bad debts -- and co-mingled with all the other records that give a glimpse of life in the old days.

Minutes to the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions is the lowest Court of record in the Warren County, North Carolina area. This Court met every three months throughout the year. From a researcher's point of view the names of more people will appear here more than any other single source of records and some names will only appear here. Excerpt
~On the petition of General Thomas Person praying that a Negro man, slave by the name of Robert, the property of the petitioner, should be liberated agreeable to law, for meritorious services and that the said Negro slave should hereafter be called and known by the name of Bob Person, it is considered and adjudged by the Court, upon hearing evidence reflecting the character of said slave, that the prayers of the said petitioner be granted and that the said slave from hence forth be considered a free man as fully as this Court has power to make him and that he be known hereinafter by the name of Bob Person.
