Record #:
During the 1930s, the Federal Government was condemning large portions of North Carolina lands, especially in the western mountain areas. Governmental officials were able to do this because of three discrepancies in the title documents; Vague Description, Formal Defects in Deeds, and Failure to Record Deeds.
