father of Nimrod Horton (b1769 Lincoln Co.NC)

I am searching for the father of Nimrod Horton. Nimrod was born 1769 in Lincoln Co. NC. Family records report Nimrod's father was killed by British & Tories while home on leave during the Revolutionary War. His name may have been James Horton or George Horton but nothing yet verified.

One tree gives father as George Washington Horton and mother as Elsie Shoemaker but this is unlikely as Nimrod's father would have been named before George Washington became famous, and dates would give Elsie as giving birth when she was 9 years old.

Nimrod's sons include Nimrod H., Abner B., Isaac, George, and Consard (Rod) Horton.
