Re: SAMUEL FLAKE of Orange/Anson County N. Carolina (re Charity)

To clarify my above post, Charity (b.1760) and Jacob (b.1757) apparently left Anson County (probably today's Richmond County) after the Revolutionary War. Jacob was a veteran. He appears on the 1790 census in what is now Kershaw County, SC. In those days, there were often movements of several families for security and what all. From what I see here on this forum, there may have been a movement to Kershaw County from Anson County after the war. Jacob received a land grant there. I now think Charity was descended from Alice and Matthias Marriott, and not Elizabeth and William Walker. But it is mostly circumstantial evidence.
