Crabb line in Currituck Co. 1700's

Crabb line in Currituck Co. 1700's

Classification: Query
Surnames: Crabb/Crab
I am researching a line for a friend and need help going past one ancestor. His name is Benjamin Crabb, born on 7 Nov 1753 (according to his revolutionary war pension applications). He ended up in Wayne county, Tennessee, where he died in 1829 (according to the pension records). According to a census record there, he was born in North Carolina & according to his pension application, he fought for a colonial regiment out of Currituck Co, North Carolina. I am trying to find out for sure where he came from in North Carolina as well as who his family members were (most importantly his parents).

Any help would be appreciated!

That's the same information I keep finding out there too, however I have my doubts about it because

1. the marriage record they've attached to Mary "Coleman" is actually for a marriage to a Joshua Horn, not Benjamin Crabb.
2. there aren't any sources listed for Benjamin being his father, though for the Currituck area I have found a John Crabb listed in a tax record from 1723-35 and then a Benjamin Crabb shows up (when John disappears) on the 1750 tax list. So, I can guess that one or the other is his father, but I don't know for sure.

What I'm hoping is that someone might have some local records access that I don't (I'm in Oklahoma) and can find a will document for either John or Benjamin (Sr?) in North Carolina, or my Benjamin (Jr?) in Wayne, Tennessee.

Thanks though!
