I have purchased on eBay and will be donating to the NC Archives two more private copies of old Burke County deeds, both related to the same 200 piece of land on Rock Creek. Since there are at least two Rock Creeks in modern-day Burke, I will have to rely on others to be able to guess exactly where this land was.
Corrected deed from William W. Erwin to Ezekiel Garland, originally dated 4 November 1817, and corrected 27 January 1823, for 200 acres, "lying on a branch that empties into Rock including the improvements of Ezekiel Garland" and "beginning on a hicory near a small branch and runs North 140 poles to a poplar in Gutridge Garlands line then West with his line 120 poles to a dogwood & white oak then South 65 West 112 poles to a dogwood then South 140 poles to a stake, then North 13 East 228 poles to the beginning." There had been a mistake made in the original deed -- with bounds as above -- and this deed states: "Error in the last line altered by me instead of North 13 East the true line in North 77 East 228 to the beginning." Witnesses were: A.L. Erwin and Asaac T. Avery.
The original conveyance was duly proved in open court in January Session, 1818, and recorded in Book 14 page 115, on 7 July 1818. The deed also notes that the 1823 alteration was duly acknowledged by the conveyer in open court at the October Session, 1826 (?).
The second deed is dated 13 March 1827, and conveys the same 200 acres from Gutridge Garland (spelled "Gutradge," "Gutrage," "Gutridge" and "Guterage") and David Garland, executors of Ezekiel Garland, deceased, to Guteridge Garland, with the same bounds as the corrected deed above. Witnesses were: Lazarus Phillips and Wesley Garland (with another notation I cannot decipher). The signature seems to be spelled "Gutradge Garland."
This deed was proved in open court at the January Session, 1829, on testimony of Wesley Garland, and registered in Book 19, page 382 on 24 April 1829.
