This is the will of John Thomas of Orange Co. North Carolina - Will Book A
Dated 24 April 1765:
wife - Elizabeth
dtr. - Mary

He says "my three children" No executer named

From "Abstracts of the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions of
Orange Co. N.C. Sept. 1752 - Aug. 1766"
Page 360 - dated May 1765 - "John Thomas (aged 8) son of John Thomas, dec'd,
bound to John Camp till 21."
This is why I think Margaret was a "Camp" but I have no proof. Both John
Camp and Thomas Camp lived on
Horse Creek of the Reedy River in Greenville District South Carolina. They
lived near John Thomas.
