My wife's genealogy is through the Hood family. The Kornegay's are cousins to us. I do not know very much about the Kornegay family, but have found some sources you might be interested in. Here they are:

KORNEGAY (Kornegay), George, Sergeant, N. C. Militia
Soldier of Duplin County, N.C., served as a sergeant under Capt. Wm Taylor
and Col. James Kenan at the battle of Moore's Creek Bridge. For his 20 days
service he received 4 pounds. In N.C. Army Accounts, vol. V, Bk 180 is voucher
# 253 M for 2/12/3 pounds and in Bk 179 is voucher # 57 M for material aid to
the militia of 1250 pounds. (This may have been from his father).
George Jr. married Mrs Margaret Downing Lullum, a widow by whom he had six
children. In the 1790 Federal census for Duplin county, George is listed in a
family of six persons with 12 slaves. Margaret died around 1800 and in 1802 he
married the widow Mrs Mourning Wiggins, who had a daughter Elizabeth, who
later married one of George's sons.
George and Margaret's six children were:
1- Civil who married 2 Aug 1783 to her cousin, John Kornegay.
2- Daniel who married Edna Flowers.
3- David who married Zilphia Oliver.
4- Basil who married Tabitha King (sister of the vice president).
5- Jacob II who married his step-sister Elizabeth Wiggins. And
6- George III.
George Jr died about 1808 probably in Wayne County. He owned land in many
of the surrounding counties and is probably buried at the "Kornegay old Burial
Ground" on Kornegay land at Kornegay's Bridge on the Northeast Cape Fear River
in Duplin County.
