Earlier this month, four of us went to Statesville to pick up about 110 volumes from the Iredell County Courthouse.
The majority of these books are Judgement Dockets of cases involving civil, criminal, special proceedings, tax sales, and land tax sales. There are also accounts of indigent orphans, various officials oath records, and records of drainage districts. The rest of the records expand the State Archives’ holdings of the following series:
