If you have not done so, you need to request the following records from the North Carolina State Archives, 4614 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-4614. The Archives website is www.ah.dcr.state.nc.us/archives/mail.htm

Request a Lincoln County, NC marriage bond dated 23 Oct. 1837 for William Little and Mary L. Springs

Request a Lincoln County, NC Estate record for Adam Springs 1842

Write a letter to the Lincoln County Register of Deeds, PO Box 218, Lincolnton, NC 28093 and ask how you can obtain a copy of a deed dated 2 Sept. 1839 whereby Adam A. Springs conveys to William Little "for love and affection a Negro boy Caleb." This deed is recorded in Lincoln County Deed Book 38, page 140.

You also need to request copies of deeds from Lincoln Co. Deed Book 40, pages 26 and 256.

These should supply some of the documentation you need for DAR.
