Catherine Williams in Dobbs County, NC in 1790

Classification: Query
I am trying to find out more about a Catherine Williams who is listed on the 1790 census for Dobbs County as a single white female, head of household. On the original census records there are a total of 7 single white females listed near each other which leads me to believe that these women could have possibly been school teachers . . . the Census says Dobbs County, Newbern District. I am trying to understand what part of the old Dobbs County the Newbern District included, and I am seeking knowledge of whether there was a school or academy there in 1790.

Of course I realize that single females listed near each other has other possibilities too . . .

I am interested in any and all details about old Dobbs County in the 1780s and 1790s.
