Edgecombe NC Census

The below three maps show the evolution of NC Counties from 1790 to 1800 to the present.  One can see that Edgecombe County  did not change between 1790 and 1811 but has lost some of its southern area by 2011.  However in all three maps Tarboro remains solidly in the upper region of Edgecombe County.
