1. James Morgan's will was proved in Nash County Court in 1781 and named his wife, Elizabeth and children:  John, James, Henry, Hardy, Stone, and Bette Cealle.  According to Rocky Strickland's web site  there was a James Morgan born January 17, 1707 in Perquimans County, NC and it is highly possible that this is our James Morgan although it is not proven.

2. Bennett Smith's father was Benjamin Smith who died in Nash county in 1799.  According to information from Annie Pearl Brantley, Benjamin was killed by a slave named Ben.
