John Adam Efurd and Lucy Fowler of South Carolina are 4th great grandparents.I did not know that his name was changed from Ephart to Efurd, however I have information about his selling a horse to the Malitia during the Revolutionary War where he spelled his name Ephart. I thought this might be a very bad spelling but he claimed land based on a numbered receipt where both spelling cases are evident.
I also did not know that he came from North Carolina.I have been serching for this information in an attempt to trace the line back further but have had no luck yet.Perhaps if you have information on where John "Ephart" lived in North Carolina or have more information on him it would help.
How did you determine that John changed his name?
I have information on the family from him to the present day for my line which I can share.
