Additional Information


<u>JOHN PIPKIN IV (1699 -1782)</u> - The earliest record of John Pipkin is in his father's will in a "bequeath to my son Daniel Pipkin a piece of land upon Milly Swamp being part of the tract that his brother John Pipkin did formerly live upon." John IV did not receive any portion of his father's estate in the will. He had already received from his father a gift "of inheritance in fee simple" 180 acres which John Pipkin Sr had purchased from a Joseph Bradey 2 Aug 1736. John IV didn't keep this land very long. He sold the same 180 acres to a Moses Hare on 16 October 1740. John IV started with his original 640-acre land grant he received in Chowan Precinct on 1 Mar 1720. Ten years later on 19 Feb 1730, he "and wife Sarah" sold 100 acres of this land to a Charles Gaffin, leaving a
balance of 540 acres. Two years later on 17 Jan 1732, John IV purchased 80 acres from his father. (Bal 620) In August 1736, John Jr received "inheritance" of 180 acres from his father. (Bal 800) On 22 Oct 1739, John IV sold 80 acres to Joseph Bradey. (This is the same Joseph Bradey from whom John III had purchased the 180-acre
"inheritance" tract three years earlier and gave to John IIII. John IIII now has 720 acres. On 16 Oct 1740 John Pipkin IV sold his 180-acre "inheritance" land to Moses Hare, leaving John IV with a balance of 540 acres in Chowan County. Five years later John IV father died (1745). Shortly after his father's death, John IV moved westward to Johnston County, NC.[North Carolina]. In 1747, John IV purchased land in Johnston Co[unty]. from an Arthur Fort and established a new plantation. Six years after that on 29 Jan 1753, John Pipkin IV, listed as "a planter from Johnston Co[unty]" sold his 540 acreslying on Mills Swamp in Chowan Co[unty] for "15 pounds Virginia currency." This was the remaining part of the original 640 acres he had received 33 years earlierin the land grant of 1720. John Pipkin IV and his wife Sarah lived on their plantation in that portion of Johnston Co[unty] which in 1758 became Dobbs Co[unty] and in 1779 became Wayne County. This area is situated near the center of North Carolina. Dobbs County, North Carolina 1779 Voters List; It Was Not Easy To Vote in 1779 Kinston Daily Free Press Friday - November 2, 1962, Page 10 "In 1779 the outlook for the success of the American Revolution had grown very dim. This year and the next were to be the darkest hours for the patriots. Kinston, the home town of Governor Richard Caswell, had become the de facto capital of the new State. Here the State's Board of War usually met in secret sessions. Sometimes the Council of State met here. Sessions of the General Assembly, being more a matter of public knowledge, usually were convened at larger and more heavily guarded towns. While the name of the town was changed from Kingston to Kinston by law in 1784, already by 1779 the patriots were calling it Kinston in derision of the King of England from whose title the original name derived. The vote in the general election in 1779 required the highest patriotic conviction. If the Revolutionary cause failed, each of these voters would be marked as among the rankest seditionists. For these were the men of Dobbs County who closest held to heart the pledge of the Declaration of Independence, the pledgeof "our sacred honor." This list of Dobbs voters is complete but does not complete her roll of honor, for there were those who were away with the armies in the field and the women whose names do not appear on this list. Still, these are the fathers and brothers and staunch supporters of those who fought, and each of them deserves to be remembered. Even to those whose resolute patriotism stilled all fear of the possibility of danger in defeat, to vote was no easy matter. The voting place was at the old Dobbs County Courthouse erected near Walnut Creek about midway between present LaGrange and Goldsboro. Dobbs County included practically all of the areas now compri................
