    There may had been many good leads about recovering buried treasures.

    HERE’S WHAT I THINK:
    After the Civil War (after emancipation), a lot of large land-owners deeded out substantial tracts of land to their former slaves. These former slaves had demonstrated to their masters that they were loyal, hard-working, and would continue to farm and contribute to the plantation collective as they always had. The only difference is that they would own the land they worked, and earn a somewhat larger income as a result of their efforts.

    During reconstruction, a lot of land holders, both black and white, had difficulty paying very high property taxes imposed by Federal Occupiers. In swept speculators and investors from up North (these people have come to be known as “Carpet Baggers”.) They often forced white land owners to sell out at a fraction of the actual value of their property. In the case of black land-owners, sometimes all the Carpet Baggers offered was threats. The effect was the same — a vast transfer of wealth from titled property owners to new people who became, in the decades of the late 19th and early 20th century, among the wealthiest people in the South.

    How do I know this? Some of my own ancestors were Carpet Baggers from Maryland. They made a small fortune after the war, stealing land, setting up mills, and effectively re-enslaving two or three generations of both poor-white and black natives of Halifax County, North Carolina.

    My suspicion is that in and amongst all those now destroyed records, was a paper trail associated with one or more now-prominent, politically connected NC families that found its wealth and success through theft, intimidation, and outrageous corruption.
    WOW, yea that's pretty infuriating. Even more infuriating is that whoever did it has already gotten away with it. This is really sad...

    If the Law watched them Burn the Stuff someone told the Cops to be there.
    You would think a Smart Cop could Investigate all the way to the People who ordered the Records destroyed .

    glad you moved this back up top, i had forgot to post this way back
    shame shame pass a buck, b/c someone was worried about 150 yr old confidentiality

    On August 14, 2013 Mr. Murray emailed Register of Deeds Brandi Davis “I think it would be smart to tell Heritage Society not to touch any of the ROD’s records until you guys have a chance to go through them.” He advised me he was concerned about confidentiality.

    You can see it plain as day. If there was a paper trail & it could be proved a lot of money & land claims / ownership could go down the drain. Same with all the pushback & tweeking history on who showed up first to America. Imagine the effect if it was proved the Vikings showed up first & their rock land claims were proved to be valid? Imagine Norway owning big chunks of the west coast & Canada. Plain as day! Tweek & hide history to make it fit some ones aganda.
