Searching in the book, Bladen Co., NC Abstracts of Early Deeds, 1739-1804, by Holcomb, I found records for the following land transactions:

21 October 1755,
August Court 1770, deed Registered.
Mark COLE of Anson Co., NC sold to Jesse BOUNDS of Anson Co., NC, 300 acres of land on the S. side of Drowning Creek on N side of Ashpole Swamp, in Bladen Co., NC..
Seal of Mark COLE and Alice COLE
Witnesses: Herkey WILLIAMS, John BOUND,

21 Oct 1765
August Court 1770
Mark COLE sold land to Jesse BOUNDS. Land on the S. side of Drowning Creek, 160 acres grated to Isaac Odom originally.
Seal of Mark COLE and ALLice COLE
Witnesses: Hickey WILLIAMS, John BOUNDS

Would like to know more about HERKEY or HICKEY WILLIAMS.

I am working on the hypothosis that this Mark COLE is the
Mark Cole who was the son of Stephen COLE and Elizabeth TEMPLE of PA. Mark was md. to Alice EVANS, parents unknown. Mark died in Cumberbland Co., NC. Many early Southeast NC settlers were from PA/MD.

A James BOUNDS and wife, Ann DICKS/DYKES from MD had a dau, Eleanor BOUNDS who md Stephen COLE, and a son named Jesse BOUNDS who md. Nancy LNU. Jesse had a son John. Jesse's children were b. in Anson Co., NC, but I do not know if this family is related to the Jesse and John BOUNDS in the above land records.

If anyone can help me with some of these relationships, I would appreciate it.
