I'm positive that they are all connected. Where did you find a listing of Edward Brinto's children? So far the earliest Gornto lines that have been traceable in VA, are from Peter Grintoe born ca 1607. I have been unable to find any info on the Brinto listed in Smith's records yet. Some researchers in mid west and Ohio Valley swear that this is their ancestor, a "Brinton". I haves searched and double searched land records in VA and cannot figure out which John it is that is the father of Nathan. There is a John, son of Peter Jr., that married a Mary Bonney, for which I can not find a line to follow in VA. There was also an Arthur Gornto that definitely left VA and went to NC. There may be some lost records in Currituck CO, as many Gornto's owned land there while residing in PACo, VA. They may have passed via Currituck on their way to Onslow. The main problem I have found with NC records is definitely the spellings! Any way you can imagine it being mispelled, it is!
