Alexander Martin (174-1807) was a Founding Father of the United States, framer of the U.S. Constitution, fourth and seventh Governor of North Carolina (1781-82), and an infantry officer in the American Revolutionary War. Partial document, signed at the bottom 1", 1782 document "Alex(ander) Martin." A portion of the pressed seal remains. William Lenoir (1751 -1839) was an American Revolutionary War officer and prominent statesman in late 18th-century and early 19th-century North Carolina. Both Lenoir, North Carolina, and Lenoir County, North Carolina, are named for him. Additionally, Lenoir City, Tennessee, is jointly named for him and for his son, William Ballard Lenoir. He served with distinction in the American Revolutionary War, in particular taking part in the Battle of Kings Mountain as a captain in the Wilkes County Regiment of the North Carolina militia under Benjamin Cleveland. He received minor wounds at that battle. While serving as a major of a company of the Wilkes County Regiment, he fought at the Battle of Stono Ferry. Partial document signed at the bottom 3", "W(illia)m Lenior", likely a portion of a Land Grant in which Lenoir was the surveyor.
