Abstract:Nathaniel Robards, the sheriff of Granville County, states "that he was allowed by the County Court of Granville at last November Term for one hundred and seventeen Insolvents comprising one hundred and eleven free polls and six slaves." He further asserts that "this allowance was not deducted from the List of Taxables returned by the Clerk of Court."
