Kibler deed for Bechtler's first land purchase in North Carolina

April 18, 1838

Bechtler’s first purchase of land in North Carolina was made with Martin Kibler's assistance, since Bechtler was not yet a U.S. citizen. The deed was written on April 18, 1838 and recorded on April 24, 1838. However, it refers to a prior transaction on April 25, 1830, the date Kibler acquired the property on Bechtler’s behalf.
