Thanks a lot! I have wanted to visit the site of the battle! I was planning on visiting NC just for that purpose someday. I was wondering if you have access to any records of our ancestors. I am trying to join the Daughters of the American Revolution and they need death certificates, marriage records, obituaries, or census records in order to prove that I am descended from John Knowles. If they can prove our line, you could join the Sons of the American Revolution!
A lot of my other surnames come from your areas as well--Blanton and Williams are two that come to mind. My family seems to have been in NC for a while and then they slowly made their way through Georgia and into Florida in the mid 1800's. I try to do family research on the side but working and going to college at the same time takes up a lot of my free time. I always come back to researching when I can because I find it very interesting.
