Some of the deeds for the sale and purchase of land by members of the Moore family refer to a "Branch" that is apparently west of "Black" Mingo, the river or swamp that divides Johnston and Harnett Counties.
It is difficult to make out the name of the Branch. Is it Bolo, Bala, Bald, Bold, Bota, or something else? If you are familiar with this watercourse, does it have a new name now? Can you tell me where it is located with reference to current roads and other landmarks?
