Gee, go back further in time and
North Carolina's Craven County was even bigger than in 1777. When it
was formed in 1712 (out of the Archdale Precinct of Bath County), it had
no defined northwestern border, It presumably stretched all the way to
the Pacific Ocean. It's shrunk ever since.
The "missing border" changed when Johnston was created in 1746, then including the area that later became Dobbs. But
here's something interesting: We may still not know exactly how big
Craven County is. US Geolgocial Survey maps show some of the border
lines with neighboring coutnies as "indefinite boundary".
