27. Grant # 584, Cabarrus NC, ent. 7 Feb 1824, sur. 15 Sep 1824, iss. 8 Apr 1825. Issued to Tobias Furrer, being 17 acres on both sides of Rocky River (see red shaded tract). In 1782, Charles McCammon received grant # 3119 for 195 acres on the south side of Rocky River opposite the mouth of Cold Water Creek. The track excluded abut 20 acres along the river. Adjoining lands of Thomas Watson (to the south and not shown) identify corners as being located “on the Indian path.” Extrapolating the path north, I am sure the path once crossed within the area of grant 584. The path likely turned northeast across the river where it ran the high ground where Hwy 601 is located. This vacant land appears to have remained vacant from 1782 up through the time that Tobias Furr entered a land grant for it in 1824. I wonder if Charles McCammon provided a right of way for passage for the Indians that was later back filled by Tobias Furrer’s grant? Was the area an ancient camp on the river? Could it represent a burial ground? The metes and bounds of the triangular portion of this tract perfectly match that of the southwest leg of grant 72 above. The survey for grant # 584 identifies lands on both sides of the northern triangular portion of this tract as belonging to Josiah Bradshaw. John H. Bost owned adjoining land along the river to the west and Charles McCammon owned the joining land on the south side of the river. The metes and bounds are from a w. o. (Josiah Bradshaw’s corner) north north 61 east 88 to stake, (said Bradshaw’s corner), south 81 west 72 to b. o. (said Bradshaw’s corner), north 57 west 131/2 to elm (John H.
