You might try looking in Chatham and Durham. It seems the area in which they lived was right at the edge of the three counties. I know that sometimes the lines were not clear. I am sorry I do not know of the family. This area also was very remote until about 30 years ago. Its the boom now...with RTP and the mall at Southpoint. Chatham as some really good geneaology people who know a great deal about the original families.
