If you were trying to drop a subtle hint asking for McDuffie wills, I missed it - at least the first time round. There are only two recorded in Bladen County (from the same book of will abstracts):

McDuffie, Daniel, Sr. September 14, 1828.
Wife: Mary. Sons: James, John, Daniel, Robert. 4 Daughters not named. Executor: James McDuffie (son). Witnesses: Robert Melvin, George Cain, John Melvin.

McDuffie, John. (died Nov. 22, 1773) January 26, 1774.
Son: Dugal. (Eldest son in Island of Jamaica.) Noncupative Will, proved by William McNeill, Archibald Shaw and Alexander Shaw before James Bailey, one of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace (died at the house of William McNeill).
Both of these are on page 60 of the book.

There are no Kerr wills in the book. There is only one mention of a Kerr, James Kerr, who witnessed the will of Anne Vernon, September 23, 1760 (page 90). Anne Vernon left her estate to sons Thomas Lucas, Henry Lucas, John Lucas, and daughter Lillian Johnston.

Bladen County was created in 1734 from New Hanover County, and a number of counties were created out of it over the years since 1734.
