Searching for information on the Downs and Tilley families in early Orange County. William Downs -- senior and junior -- appear in the 1800 Wake County census, before migrating to Sumner County, TN. I believe that they were in Orange County, NC in 1790. William Downs married Polley Tilley in Orange Co. in 1794; George Tilley married Charity Downs in Wake County. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.
