Re: Township codes on birth records in database?

I would like to know what specific town the two listed relatives were born in. I am looking for assistance interpreting the TOWNSHIP CODES (see below) for the following births:

From Ancestry.com, North Carolina Birth Index 1800-2000,
Catawba County, 1942, S, Image 5:
Index to Vital Statistics 1913 ----Pg.447

WALTER SCOTT - Race: C - Sex: M -Date of Birth: 4/3/1917 - Parents: SCOTT, ANDREW W. & ALICE
Township: M - Book: 2 - Page: 994


Also, same page -
ANNA SCOTT - Race: C - Sex: F - Date of Birth: 1/24/1915
- Parents: SCOTT, ANDREW WILSON & ALICE
Township: V - Book: 1 - Page: 899

This is a new database, and I have no idea what the Township letters mean, perhaps it is a code used by the state or county.

Thank you for your assistance!
