Well, dagnabit, when I locate my book on Anson County NC Wills, Marriages and deeds, I'll see what I can add to your search.
As for patriot or Tory, in the South, don't be surprised if you find information that indicates both at one time or another. In Georgia, there is a document of confiscated property and banishment of known Tories. While researching my Stevenson line in Baltimore MD, I found individual petitions by Tories to the King of England for damages and losses.
I'll look around in some of my sources and see if anything interesting pops up.
