      On 1st March Anno Dom 1784, this same petition was signed by other
      residents of Wayne County. Following are their signatures. There
      weren't that many folks in Wayne County at the time and this seems
      to represent the majority, the area in question was on the Neuse River
      bank, where business was done back then.
