Looking for info for John DONAHO,b. 1706-1781. I know that John DONAHO and wife Eleanor were located on Mudlick Creek. There seems to be several land deeds on Mudlick for John DONAHO from 1767-1772.

"Survey for John DONAHO pursuant to precept dated 5 NOV 1771: 300 acres in Craven County of waters of Mudlick Creek. "Bounded SE by JOHN DONAHOE and vacant land;E by James Burgess; NE by John Chestnut and vacant land; NW by John Philpot and vacant land. Survey certified 30 NOV. 1771, Jno Caldwell. D.S."
I assume John DONAHO is John and Eleanor. Who is John DONAHOE. Curious of the different spelling in the same deed? Or are they talking about the same John???

What is a Memorial? Haven't seen this before?

"Memorial" by John DONOHO: 150 acres survey cerified 1 JAN. 1771 and granted 10 JAN 1771. Quit rent to commence in two years from date. Signed 14 FEB 1771 by John DONAHO

"Memorial" by John DONNOHOE; 300 acres survey certified 300 acres survey certified 30 NOV. 1771 and granted 21 May 1772. Quit rent to commence in 2 years. Signed 3 AUG 1772 by James MaGill for the memorialist and delivered 10 DEC 1772. Jno Caldwell D.S.

Sure getting confused by the records I have been finding in this area. Are there 2 lines of Donahos in this area at this time. So far I have divided them between the John on Mudlick and John the Loyalist. Also William and William the Loyalist.

Sure could use some more info to shake this all out???
Thank you.
