Mr. Graham, In one of your post you mentioned you are compiling a list of persons and (hope I remember correctly) their loyalties. I was curious as to what sources you would use to do that. I have an ancestor in Lincoln County until about 1810-1812 and has mysteriously disappeared from any records. I have assumed he died, but have not been able to determine that. Then it occurred to me he could have left, maybe to avoid prosecution as a loyalist or Torie. (Forgive any inaccuracies as to the politics, even though I grew up in Gaston County, it has been a long long time since I tried to recall that portion of NC history).Most of my ancestors are from that part of NC. I was hoping you may have come across the name William Linn/Lynn in compiling your list. He was married to Nancey Boyd and produced 2 children before his disappearance/death. Nancey also had an illegtimate child named James around 1813. Even though William was on the 1800 census he is missing from the 1810 census and Nancey appears as head of household. Could my William have been one of those who fled to the Abbeville district of SC? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thank you! Judy Lynn Medley
