In the Journal of the NC House of Assembly, Dec. 19, 1770; NC Archives, Raleigh, NC, is found this petition:
Mr. Speaker, and Gentlemen of the House of Assembly,
I am to request you will exempt Mr. Joseph Fulford, now upwards of Eighty Years, from the Payment of Public, Parochial, and County taxes; he has been a Resident of the Province since the Year 1705, near Twenty Years before the Indians were last drove from Cape Fear River; served Seven Years in the War against the Indians, between the Years 1709 and 1719, and is at this present time incapable of Labour; all which Circumstances make him an object of your Indulgence. He is now an Inhabitant of Carteret County.
[Signed] Will. TRYON
I post this only as a resource. Roger Kammerer
