JACOB WEST COLLECTION - Private Collection #1237.1 located at the North
Carolina Archives, Raleigh, NC
4th ? September 1774 - Craven Co - Survey for RICHARD BLACKLEDGE - 450 acres -
Rigston Brill, Surveyor
NOTE: Mary Jane said the Gilstraps came out of Prince George Co, Va so this
might give some hint that this William was the son of Thomas and Isabelle.
l. Grants found by Howard for a William
a. Grant 37 Book No l8 p 33 - Craven County l00 Acs Issued l5 Feb l764 SS
of Neuse River
b. Grant 37 - Book l7 p 38 - l00 Acs l5 Feb l764 - joining Thomas Branton

NOTE: This are probably the same grant as shown in Hoffman's Book - her only
additional description - was next to The Meadows
2. William Phillips to be exempted from Taxes Sept court l774 - Granted
petition signed by lots of people including Alderson and Jacob Phillips another
document said he was feeble - from Elizabeth Moore Collection at ECC
3. I have found only l reference to a William in Dobbs County prior to the
appearance of my William in the l800s and that is in the Dobbs Cross Indexes.
Book l2 - April l779 - April l784 - Elisah Dowing (or) William (ee)
If this transaction was for land, I see no indication of William selling it.
What happened to it? Was this the same William as the one on Moseley Creek?
4. Jacob also appears to have lived SS of the Neuse and then moved to the NS
of the Neuse. He may have been too old to have been the son of William. Thomas
and James of Moseley Creek appear to be the right ages to have been sons of
this William. Was this James son of William or James Jr. of Dobbs? Was this
William even the son of Thomas and Isabelle? It would be a little unusual for the
time for all the young children of Thomas and Isabelle to have lived to
adulthood and all to have children.
