Re: Leonard Brightwell
An avenue that you might want to pursue, John Brightwell in the 1800 Rutherford NC Census.Also possibly Lenard Brightwell in Bute/Granville CO NC 1769.

There is a possibility that these are descendants of Reynolds Brightwell d. 1702/1703 in Virgnia, but they are a separate line from those in Virginia during that time frame.
There are 3 (known) male Brightwell's in NC in the mid 1700's.William, Reynolds, Leonard/Lenard.The descendants of Reynolds in NC settled in SC/GA.
