Dear Richard,

Thank you for visiting NCpedia and taking time to share your question.

If you are looking for information about North Carolina's gas tax, here is a link to a page on the N.C. Department of Revenue with a list of motor vehicle gas tax rates from 1921 to the present: http://www.dor.state.nc.us/taxes/motor/rates.html

I hope this helps!

Best wishes,

I am Curator of the Univ of NC Chapel Hill Herbarium and I am cataloging our fungal collection. I have a specimen collected by "C. J. Cowles, Wilkesboro, N.C." on July 23, 1900. This fungus is a parasite on corn, so of economic interest. As Ms. McGrew's very informative bio on CJ Cowles indicates, Cowles had wide-ranging interests... possibly extending to fungi.

Sir/Madame,

I have a 5 Volume set of books that references all of the NC Regiments and Battalions in the Great War 1861-'65; Edited by Walter Clark; published by the state in 1901. As his name is handwritten on the inside cover of two volumes, I believe this set belonged to Major Chas. M. Stedman (1841-1930, Lt. Gov. of NC, last Civil War Veteran to serve in US Congress).

Though now a resident of AZ, I am originally from Greensboro and this set was given to me by my father (lifelong resident of Greensboro) several years before his death. I am interested in any information you may have about this NC History in The Civil War, and/or where I can have the set appraised.

Thank you for your time and response to this inquiry.

In the 1783 January Court Minutes for Rutherford County, 102 men were accused and found guilty of treason against the state and their land was confiscated. Was this an isolated incident or were other men in other counties of NC also found guilty of treason? Did this have to do with the battles between Tories and Whigs in NC after other hostilities ceased?

Hi, thanks for posting your question! I just sent you an email to connect you with Reference Services at the NC Government & Heritage Library. They may have ideas of resources for you to check in your research.

Best,
