Mecklenburg County Wills and Estates



Mecklenburg County was formed in 1762 from the western part of Anson County. For sometime, the county extended into the State of Souch Carolina. Thus, during 1768, most of the region west of the Catawba River) was designated Tryon County, North Carolina. In 1792 the northeastern part of Mecklenburg County became Cabarrus County. Finally, in 1842 the southeastern part of Mecklenburg County was combined with the western part of Anson County to become Union County. Researchers should search Union County census records and county records as well as Mecklenburg.
