[Edith Warren Huggins, Burke County, North Carolina Misc. Records, Vol. II (Easley SC: Southern Historical Press, reprint 1985), 151-152]

As reported by Kathy Gunter Sulliva, CG: “Bills of Indictment were presented to the Grand Jury at Burke County Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions in October 1782. The indictments were found to be A True Bill. Subpoenas were issued on 12 November 1782 commanding the parties to appear and answer at January Sessions 1783.

“Meanwhile the North Carolina Superior Court was adjudicating the issue of treason. That court

nullified all treason proceedings conducted in all county courts ruling that such proceedings were beyond the authority of county courts. The North Carolina Superior Court judgment is dated 4 March 1783. ‘It is considered, that the said indictments for want of authority and jurisdiction in the said County Court . . . be utterly quashed and that [any prior judgments]. . . be annulled and vacated.’

“In April 1783, the North Carolina General Assembly passed An Act of Pardon and Oblivion. The law, transcribed in Walter Clark, ed., State Records of North Carolina, XXIV: 489-490, forgives everyone other than four exceptionally notorious men. So, there were no trials, no acquittals, nothing. The whole issue was fini as far as North Carolina law was concerned.”
