Take a look at

and look at entry 28:
Deed 10-118, Mecklenburg NC, 6 Jan 1768, prvíd Apr 1794. Hugh Eadger to James Bradshaw, being 63 acres on Rocky River purchased on an unknown date from Arthur Dobbs. The lower appendage shapes in Grant # 72 stradde this tract. The metes and bounds are from a beach (on the river bank) north 29 west 80 to hic., south 61 west 88 to oake, (down the various courses of river) to begin. Wit: Robít Harris, Robít Harris Junír.

There were a lot of deeds in book 10 Cabarrus that were made back in the 1760's Mecklenburg and not entered until the 1790's Cabarrus. Most seemed to be land of people who had moved from the area and was sold to locals and the land just was not entered into record until much later. Some moved to Washington County PA and some to GA.

I honestly believe part of the deeds reflect the move to GA by part of the folks connected to the Cabarrus Black Boy incident. In my mind, that wagon was burned south of Rocky River, not up northwest of Concord where the marker stands...
