He was born in North Carolina....I see history in Wake, Swift Creek and Panther Branch? I have marriage info as :
Elizabeth hunter December 3, 1835 and
Lucy J W Mullin (McMullin) January 15, 1854
I have found probate info that is dated 1869 where he died without a will. I am having a hard time finding parents or siblings. Some info gives his birthdate as 1817.
