Borland family papers

About the Digital Collection

The collection begins with the legal papers, mostly transferring land titles, of an eighteenth-century Alexander Borland, who was living in Orange County, N.C., before the American Revolution. Other materials include legal and financial records, including lists of items sold. There is one letter written in the 1820s by William Strayhorn to his brother James Strayhorn in Hillsborough. In addition, there is a will [Jan. 31, 1818] of a later Alexander Borland.
