99% sure we have the correct one; based on his birth date and death date; along with his will. It's just a 'shock' ... sorta ... to come across this ... having viewed his data for the last 25 plus years; and never tying it all together.

Ironically in a book of my ancestors, along with many others who had just migrated to the colony of SC, the writers referred to him as a Loyalist ... along with his father.

I verified this from the older book of Loyalists in the South ... and let it lie there for years. Only today, with the wife raising another question, did I tye the data together; that being the Loyalist list, the will, the plea ... and the dates.

That's what could be called a 25 year 'DUH' moment.
