"This Publick Notice is addressed to all Gentlemen Freeholders and others whom it may concern."

" Albemarle County in North Carolina by virtue of what they term their grand Deed or Charter being in fact as we are given to understand only a Temporary provision: Yet nevertheless in order to settle and determine the property of such persons as claim lands in that County under that right you are to permit all persons claiming Lands in the said County by virtue of such Patents under the Lords Proprietors before the year 1727...".

Apparently there were more than one person named Henry McCulloh who appear in North Carolina history.

I don't have my Henry McCulloh's straight, but one of them had transactions with my Trousdale family in North Carolina.  This book,  Henry McCulloh and Son Henry Eustace McCulloh
By Stewart Dunaway, mentions it, and also has facsimiles of old deeds that are interesting.  This site included some of Mr. Dunaway's information.

Henry McCulloh was also noted in this blog, Wandering Through The NC Piedmont.

Online at the University of North Carolina's website:
