Mildred J. Miller's Map of Early Iredell Settlers, dated 198X, copy and details furnished by Donald Anderson

Mildred Jenkins Miller (1932-2011) went to the Rowan County Library, History Room and there worked with Gretchen Whitt, the local history librarian and Mildred read, studied all land deeds of land that fell in Iredell County after 1788. She then went to the Iredell Register of Deeds and worked with those ladies and their digitized land the early land deeds of land that adjoined land that was originally registered in Rowan County. By reading these various deed she was able to learn who a specific deed's described land joined. By doing this she was zeroing in on a refined geographic area where this specific early setter's homestead was located, considering those that adjoined and waterway and their course as described in the deed.

The map was layed out into sections in order to see and find the locations. Below are the current images for this map.

Great work by Mildred and Gretchen. Mildred helped me tremendously in my family research. I miss her greatly. She and Irene Black were the backbone of the Genealogical Society of Iredell County.

Is there a way to request a digitized image of the map that is missing? I have a client with ancestors on Old House Creek, D5. Is the map accessible to the public in Iredell?
posted by Joy Curtiss
Honestly, I'm not sure if you can request the missing image. Sorry!
There was more than one Joseph Wasson living in this area. The chart is linked to Joseph Wasson (abt.1718-abt.1794) who lived on Fourth Creek and probably should instead be linked to Joseph Wasson Sr. (1744-1822) who lived on Snow Creek.
