It's hard to tell I need to look them over , he was in the Revolutionary War and married at Pistol Creek G.A records show he had my line which is William Hooper 1807 1893 William was in his will along with Williams wife Nancy Bryson,  he had a brother named Clemmons Hooper and about 11 Children at least. THANKS.
I would say the one living in Haywood County, N.C has to be the right one at the time of 1820/1840 , Do you have anything else on this one I would like everthing I could get, Thanks he was born around 1757-1845 keep this in mind.
You ask about his father, family says his dad was killed or died and he joined the War at age 12 or 14 and his mother may have been last name Clemmons and she was from Pendleton District, S.C or maybe Georgia this is not to far away from each other. I have had one person tell me that a Hooper was hung in N.C that could be the father he took a horse they said, Thanks
Which Absalom Hooper Revolutionary War Soldier is the son of William Hooper Signer of The Declaration of Independence for N.C,  ? I would like to see proof that William Hooper was the father to Absalom Hooper and how many more sibling's was they of Absalom Hooper Revolutionary War Soldier,  Thanks

Your good follow up on more information helped. Here's a Pedigree Resource File showing Absalom's father and mother. It also shows his paternal grandfather and grandmother. Lastly, it shows his paternal great grandfather and great grandmother.

This type of submission is not rechecked for accuracy, so you may want to verify whether it is correct.

How confident do you feel with this information on Absalom Hooper's Parents,  Grandparent's and Great Grandparents,  I have been talking to the Hooper family and they act like they have no idea, Absalom Hooper Revolutionary War Soldier is my 5th Great Grandfather,  I have been to his resting spot in East Laport Cemetery, Jackson County, N.C the marker says 1757-1845 but they meaning all the information I have found says they don't know that date is correct on his stone. It isn't the original one any way. The People at the Society Library in Sylvia,  Jackson County, N.C even said they thought he was this Thomas Hooper1742-1790 but you know Thomas Hooper that signed the Declaration of Independence this is also his years of life. puzzling information for sure, Thanks for this information
