  • Notes 
    • The above records revealed that Stephen Pettypool lived near Mocassin Creek in Johnston County, which forms the county line between Johnston County and present day Nash and Wilson Counties, and between Wake (from Johnston) and Franklin Counties. Newt Tapley lived closeby. He was the brother-in-law of Ephraim Pettypool, both of whom married daughters of Thomas Avent of Northampton County, namely Elizabeth and Ursula, respectively. Importantly, Newt's brother, Joel Taply married Mary Avent, another daughter of Thomas Avent. Joel and Mary Avent Tapley had a daughter, Mary Tapley, who married Phillip Pettypool, likely a son of Stephen Pettypool.
