I finally found the time to get into Gene's Knighton Website.I found a little bit of info on the Thomas Knighton I think "connects" to mine.
Gene included this info:
Thomas Knighton: b: 1730- d: Feb-Apr 1776. Father:? Moses? 17??-1755 Wife of Thomas: Elizabeth Children of Thomas & Elizabeth Knighton: John, Thomas, & William.
Gene included this land record for the younger son, Thomas: On Jan 19, 1775, John Sloan of Mecklenburg Co. to THOMAS Knighton for 60 lbs- 90 acres on both side of Paw Creek adjoining Mason, David Mcord Kinley, granted to Sloan Jan 13, 1733.
Gene also noted that the "Older" Thomas Knighton made his Will on Feb. 08, 1761 in MECKLENBURG CO, NC. (Note: He died in 1776).
Do you think these Knightons connect with the same ones that were in Fairfield Co, SC in 1820?
