    "I am seeking information about my 5 time great Grandfather, James ABBOTT.  James died at the age of 23 in Iredell, NC, leaving behind a wife 3 children.  We have been unable to determine where James came from, although there is some evidence his family was from Kentucky or Virginia.   There was a court case in Orange County, NC in 1788 that shows two 11 year old boys were orphaned and ""bound"" to a William RAY, who was a Justice of the Peace,  The boys, James ABBOTT and William CHAPMAN were possibly cousins, whose family names match up to some hits we have found through DNA evidence of relatives from Kentucky.
If anyone can tell me how I can get access to the actual court records, or if anyone has any other information related to this search, I would greatly appreciate your help!
Thank You!"
