    This site shows the early migration routes of early settlers . I would say the earliest settlements would be along this route, other than Native American Settlements. Lots of other info at the websites.

    I have had good luck with old topo maps. You can find most of the old topo maps for NC online. Another place to look for is to find the location of old post offices. I have found at least one "ghost town" in Alexander County this way. Another source is old aerial photography which may be available at your local library. This is a great way to find the location of old mill villages and abandoned roads. Apparently the federal government did lots of aerial photography for western NC between 1938 & 1941.

    AGAIN! They were MINING CAMPS/TOWNS (NOT incorporated); "google" Mining Camps/Towns of WESTERN North Carolina. "NEO", what are you REALLY looking for...? You have family history of GOLD being stashed, and you are trying to find it...? "Google" GOLD "veins" of Western North Carolina; Miners set up camps/towns near-by... HH! Good LUCK! Coffee...?

    I didn't find this site until after my previous post: Historic Aerials This should give you an idea of any old mill towns or settlements.
    Rebel-KGC's post made me remember this map: Preliminary map showing location of principal gold deposits in North Carolina
    I think there may be a few locations on there that will get your attention.

    Map of Caldwell County, [North Carolina] (J. C. Harper) :: North Carolina Maps

    Here ya go

    This map lists cedar valley in the lower right side of county boundary ... You'll have to zoom in and look of the creek wit a lot of branches.

    With a little more searching of this Map you may be able to find the other cities you're looking forward as well

    That database is awesome. Historic maps oh all counties in NC. It has a few older maps as well ... And a ton of newer ones too. I use this resource all the time and spend hours looking at them trying to find cool places to hunt artifacts on
