I got this reply from a GIST message board. Thank you GIST people! This is the answer I needed. p. 180 "Christopher Gist of Maryland and Some of His Descendants," by Jean Muir Dorsey and Maxwell J. Dorsey, 1969.
"...Some of the others who were interested in the church [founded by Rev. Shubel Stearns who had come from Massachusetts in 1754 and founded a Baptist Church at Sandy Creek] were ...Charles and Thomas Thompson. The names of these men are found on the Orange County [NC] tax lists, as well as on early deeds in the county. Later these families sold their land in Orange County and went to South Carolina with Rev. Philip Mulkey and organized a church on the Broad River. From here they went to Fairforest and located on a fork of the Fairforest and Tyger Rivers where they established another Church. (David Benedict, "History of the Baptists," Vol. 2, p. 155; George W. Pascal, "History of the North Carolina Baptists," pp. 385-386; Leah Townsend, "South Carolina Baptists, 1670-1805," pp. 122-126.)
