- The bulk of the collection, received in February 1992, is on deposit from the Harrisonburg-Rockingham County Historical Society. A parchment land patent dated May 31, 1753 to Gabriel Jones, signed by Robt. Dinwiddie, was donated to Carrier Library by Margaret Grattan Weaver of Harrisonburg in October 1986. It was issued by the Virginia (Colonial) Land Office to Gabriel Jones for 644 acres "on the north side of Shannando," in Augusta County (now near Port Republic in Rockingham County). It was signed by Rob(er)t Dinwiddie, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia.
