Michael O'Barr of the Revolution
Posted by: Bobbie Martin (ID *****9893) Date: February 13, 2013 at 09:37:58
  of 1367

Is this Michael O'Barr of the Revolution?? (If so, then he did not die in North Carolina as some have claimed, without proof.) This seems to be the FACT as shown by the following deed. Note that he is living in Wilkes County, Georgia in 1787 and is selling his land on Hogan's Creek in Caswell County, North Carolina that was granted to him in 1782.


(Copied from the original deed)
