(Note: This was probably registered in Tryon County orininally and when Montgomery County was formed, the deed was re-registered, which was commonly done. Every time the government changed, the properties seem to be re-registered. Please check the Harrison Patent Map. Harrison Patent Land Map. You will see that the Wendell family purchased the land in 1723.)
