I have an original deed for the purchase of 100 acres of land for 50 shillings by Frederick Rivenbark in Duplin County, North Carolina in 1785. I can not find any Rivenbarks in my family so far and it is pretty well documented. I do have ancestors (Howards and Coopers) from Duplin and Sampson County next door, so somewhere I am missing someone. Maybe this will help. Here is a photo of the land deed. Sorry the glass is broken. I will try to get it fixed, but I don't want to destroy the 230 year old paper!
