In Reply to: Death certificate for W. C. Mott, Pender Cty by Nancy Formy Duval of 224

Nancy,
There will not be a death certificate for W. C. Mott if he died between 1870-1880. North Carolina did not start keeping death certificates until 1916 and birth certificates until 1912.
I checked:
1860 US Federal Census for New Hanover County, Page 243 #156-157 Wm. C. Mott 60,M,Farmer, NC 2000/2000
Mary A. 50,F,NC
John M. 22,M,NC
Wm. Mc. 6,M,NC
Washington 2,M,NC
Wm. Turner 18,M,Farmer,NC

1845 Taxlists of New Hanover County, Lower Black River District: Mott, William C., # acres 482, Free polls 1, Value Land 482, Total tax $1.83;

I found the following but not sure it is your Mary. This would put her birth at 1791; The above census record would put her birth at 1810;

Marriage and Death Notices from Wilmington, NC Newspapers, 1866-1870 compiled by Helen Moore Sammons; Page 134-135
#1423 Mott: Died In this city, of pneumonia, on the 1st of May, Mrs. Mary Mott, aged 75 years. Funeral will be from the Fifth Street M. E. Church on Thursday, May 3rd, at 9 o'clock A.M.; Daily Wilmington Dispatch Wed 2 May 1866, Daily Journal & Weekly Journal Thur 3 May 1866.

Hope this helps. I maintain the Pender County Genealogy, Cemeteries of Pender and Pender County History files at the Pender County Public Libray in Burgaw, NC. Please e-mail if you need anything else. Will be happy to help.
June Swinson.
