Can anyone furnish me any documented proof for citation that the young Hampton lad killed on North Pacolet River in 1780 in present Spartanburg County, SC, was Noah Hampton, a son of Col. Andrew Hampton of Rutherford County, NC? The problem is that the fight there was known as the "Battle of Earle's Ford" because Baylis Earle lived there and one of his daughters had married Col. Edward Hampton of present Spartanburg County. Col. Edward Hampton was also in that fight and SC historians have written that the Hampton lad killed was a son of Col. Edward Hampton. I am fully convinced that he wasn't, that he was Noah Hampton and that his father was Col. Andrew Hampton. Noah Hampton's estate was administered in Rutherford County, NC, in 1782 by his brother, Jonathan Hampton. Has anyone ever reviewed that estate to see if there is any mention of where he died? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
