RARE PUBLICATION: NC Will Abstracts 1760-1800
Posted by: E. Keith Johnson (ID *****0111) Date: May 08, 2004 at 16:54:44

I found the following publication in a local public library. It was in good condition and my suggestion the library placed it in their rare books collection. I abstracted the Pearce/Pierce surnames for myself and I thought given the scarce nature of the book that I would share the information for everyone's use. Enjoy!
