Frink Sisters 18th c Craven County NC

Searching for any information on 3 Frink women in Craven County NC, believed to be sisters, who were beneficiaries in the will (probated 1802) of Thomas Tomlinson of New Bern NC. They were stated to be nieces of Thomas Tomlinson but no link can be found for this. Thomas made his will in New Bern in 1798 and gave the names of his nieces as: Hannah Frink, Polly Clark and Kitty Lewis.

The marriage records for Craven County give Mary Frink m Joseph Clark Dec 1793, Katherine "Kitty" Frink m David Dunn Dec 1783 and later as Kitty Dunn m David Lewis Dec 1785. Have not found a record for the marriage of Hannah Frink.

They are the first of the beneficiaries to be named in the will, which has quite a list of legatees.

There is a supposition that Thomas Tomlinson married an Elizabeth ? but no marriage record has been found to support this.

There was an Elizabeth Tomlinson in New Bern at the same time as Thomas Tomlinson but they do not appear to have lived together. This Elizabeth is not mentioned in the will of T T and she did not mention him in her will but left her estate to her aunt Boneta McCartney.

It is possible that Thomas's sister Jane (B Cumberland, England) was in NC at the same time as her brothers and that she married a Frink!

Would love a definite link please to add to my history of Thomas and John Tomlinson.
