Well, of course, Mr. Graham, I don't know as much as you. I do, however, have a BFA/MFA in English and theater, raised four children and taught school for many years. I do quite a bit of research. I was simply giving the person a reason to "color outside the lines." My example is the following:

From "Burke County Sheriff's Department History"

"Burke County Sheriffs-1777 to Present
[1] Daniel McKissick 1777-1779]
Not a resident of present Burke County, however, he lived in the south central section of present CATAWBA County near the town of Maiden."

There are records of Daniel being in Old 96th,Lincoln, Catawba, and Burke. He fought at the battle of Ramsour's Mill and was instrumental in forming the town of Lincolnton; ANNALS OF LINCOLN COUNTY. (Why is there no street named after him?)

I have made overlay maps of the changing county lines in NC, and have found them quite helpful in my research. I am descended from Daniel McKisick,James Wilson, John Cox & Absalom Bonham; all of your area.
