Excerpt from "The Argo Families Revisited": "The birth of Mary Argoe probably occurred prior to 1769 in or around Dobbs County, NC. She married Joseph Gleaton and at one point in her life was a school teacher. Joseph had earlier emigrated from England and had been shipwrecked off the coast of Port Royal, South Carolina. Prior to 1800, Joseph and Mary moved to a place adjacent to the lands of Levin Argoe. Family tradition states that Levin and Mary were brother and sister. At least one child, Thomas, was born to Mary and Joseph Gleaton. He (Thomas) married Kisia Bolin who had been born to Edward Bolin and his wife in 1789. Kisia's sister Margaret wed Robert Argoe and settled nearby. Thomas and Kisia Gleaton established their home on a farm 15 miles west of Orangeburg on the old Ninety-Six Road and are both buried in the family cemetary on the west side of Neeses. To that union had been born nine children, Absolum, Lizer, Rachael, Kisia, Sally, Levy, Amos, Thomas and Edward. Sally later became the wife of Edward Argoe, the son of her Aunt Margaret Bolin Argo."
