On Nov. 19. 1806, Hartwell Parrish, John S. Robeteau, Dury Brown, Isham Utley and William Spright, Jr conducted business at the William Hill General Merchandising Store. This account appears in an abstraction of the original ledger in the Wake Treasures Journal. This abstraction of the ledger Contains 250 pages, approximately 2500 names, and activities from November 1806 to March of 1807. The abstraction is divided into three parts appearing in Vol. 1, Issues 2, 3, and 4.

If you had Wake County ancestors living in the area in the early 1800's, this may be a record set you want to check out.
