Pryor / North Carolina

Does anyone know about these Pyror's ?

I know were Alson Prior Waggaman got his name but can’t figure out the connection. Maybe if I send this out to everyone that someone else can shed some light on this family. I have been working on the Waggaman’s for years and this is what I have found.
I bought a book from Guilford Co. North Carolina APPRENTICE BONDS & PAPERS 1817 – 1870 on page 55 and page 56 it has Alson Prier (male orphan, age 13 on 4-5-1820). Master and date of Bond (John Waggoner 2-21-1820) witness Jno. Hanner)
On page 56 Denard Pryor (male orphan no age) Master and Date of Bond Andrew Waggaman 11-20-1820) Witness Jno. Hanner.

If you look at the old census records for Guilford Co. North Carolina you will find John Waggaman and Andrew Waggaman along with some Waggoners. John Waggaman is the right age to be Andrew Waggaman b. 1779 father. I also went to Salt Lake City and found some land records that mention Adam, Andrew and John Waggaman. So I’m wondering are the Pryor’s some how related to the Waggaman’s and is that why John and Andrew took in both Pryor boys? Also naming a family member after Alson.

Please contact me with anything you might know or any questions
