  • Notes 
    • from "Northern Scurlock's" newsletter, by Helen Mott, Greensboro, NC:

      "Elizabeth married early to John Auld, State Senator of NC and moved to Anson Co, NC. However, she died in Pittsboro in 1795, and he died about 1804 in Pee Dee Station, Anson Co, NC. He is buried in the Auld Cemetery in Anson Co. Elizabeth did not receive money from Mial’s estate since she had taken her inheritance early. John Auld had over 1,000 acres of land when he died."
