Vickers and Lowe Records in North Carolina

These records go from 1722-1899. It is clear that many Lowes settled in North Carolina.

Samuel Vickers and Hannah Lowe married and are my direct line, but I hope these records help you too.

WB = Will Book

SS = Secretary of State records in the State Archives

SS/AR = Secretary of State loose wills in State Archives

CTY = Custody of county clerk in Superior Court

Here’s a link to help you find the counties. The movement was westward.
