Hi, Dave, in case someone isn't able to help with your request, you should be able to get these records online.
North Carolina Probate Records 1735-1970:http://tinyurl.com/9cp772r
Sampson County Deeds:http://www.sampsonrod.org/II_main.asp
For the deeds, you'll select for "Type" Land (inception of county to 1977); for "Sub-type" 1 or 2 grantor or grantee; for "Year Range" Inception of County to 1940; then input the surname you're researching. An image will open below, right; to the left is an index of surnames that start with that letter, with surnames in alpha order. Clicking on your surname will bring up the grantor or grantee index for that surname, and you can then input the deed book and page number for each entry into the "View Image" box and pull up the deed itself.
Hope that helps.
