Harrison Orphans,. Caswel Co, 1782

According to a 1997 posting,Caswell Co NC Orphans/Guardians lists James, Jerry, Judith and Johanna as orphans in 1782. I have not seen the notice, but have been unable to determine whether it showed the parents. I did however find that James, (age 17) and Jere (14) were apprenticed to a James Springer in Sept 1782 and Judith (9)and Johanna (4) were apprenticed to Hannah Kiles and Elizabeth Roberts respectively in Oct 1782 (from Caswell County North Carolina Land Grants, Tax Lists, Staate Census Apprentice Bonds, Estate Records compiled by Katharine Kerr Kendall, 1977). I would appreciate any info that anyone has about these children, especially their ancestry and what happened to them? I am searching for the ancestry of my ancestor Jeremiah Harrison probably born in NC abt 1769,in Wilkes County,Ga in 1790, married Rebecca Ramsey in Oglethorpe County, Ga in 1796, and they later moved to Jasper County, Ga (and to Lawrence Co, Ms in 1820s. Children were James(m Nancy Chaffin in Jasper Co), Rhoda (m Finch Davis in Jasper Co), Jamima (m William Sterling in Lawrence Co, Ms,)William (m Sarah Seamons/Simmons in Lawrence Co, Ms and later Eleanor Seamons in Tyler Co, Tx), Mary (m Malichi Mixon in Lawrence Co, Ms) Greenberry, Albert Jeremiah (m Matilda Guynes/Guines in Copiah Co, Ms), Almeda (m Henry Cliburn in Lawrence Co, Ms), and Rebecca (m John Castillo in Lawrence Co, Ms). Any info on any of this would be much appreciated. Paul Harrison
