Land record lookup?

Land record lookup?

Surnames: Coker
Is anyone willing to lookup a land record for Ezekiel Coker, who inherited land from his father in 1785, and lived there in Edgecombe county through 1800 census. Left sometime after that. I would like to know when he sold or otherwise disposed of this land.

I have a book of Abstract of Wills of Edgecombe NC 1773-1856
Cannot give you exact locations of the land, but Ezekiel is listed in this will.'

Apr. 06,1785 August Court. 1785
Wife & extx: ELIZABETH.
Son: JACOB plantation whereon I live, also 75 acres on Whiteoak Swamp (obtained) from my father JAMES COKER. Son: EZIEKIEL, 57 acres on Whiteoak Swamp purchased of Demspey Spier. Also 125 acres of own entry, Oct. 28,1782.
Exxr: Brumblea Coker. Sit: James Boykin, Nathaniel Coker

I know this is not exactly what you were searching for, but it does give you up to the grandfather's name of Ezkiel, in case you are doing genealogy of the family.

The only place where I see a land entry for the name is this:

Edge. Co. Db 10, page 105, date of deed 20 Jun 1797, date recorded Aug. Ct. 1801, Samuel (x) Price of Edgecombe Co. to Elisha O'Neil of same for 30pds, a tract of 100 acres on the south side of Maple Swamp joining WILLIAM DAWS Ezekiel Coker, Odom (?) O'Neil Proved Aug Court
1801 by Daniel Story. Abstracted by Ben Williams.

The Edgecombe Co. deeds are online and can be fully searched from here:
