Notes
From Robert Davidson:

"John Durham and his wife, called Mollie, were in Surry Co NC by 1774, where they lived on Deep Creek next to the Carlton family. They led the family migration to Spartanburg Co, SC, going back and forth and finally settling there about 1789. The Durhams had a large farm near Switzer in the southern part of the county, and over the years they prospered. John Durham's will leaves land and property and nine slaves to his children.

"John and Mary Durham died on the same day. The tradition passed along by a granddaughter, Matilda Hoy, is that Mollie died first, and John, not wishing to live any longer, but in good health, simply put his hands over his eyes and expired. This may be fanciful, but the "Greenville Mountaineer" for April 15, 1837 gives this account:

'Departed this life on Tuesday, the 4th instant, in Spartanburg District, Mr John Durham, aged 86, and Mary, his wife, aged 83. They had been upwards of fifty years members of the Baptist Church at Green Pond, and their truly Christian deportment had marked their course. In death as in life, they seemed one, both being interred in the same grave."

      7. John3 Carlton II (John2, Blake1) was born 1760 in Brunswick VA, and died in Surry Co. North Carolina. He married Anna Davis.

Notes for John Carlton II:
From Robert Davidson:

"...living with wife, but no family in Surry County in 1810, 1820 and 1830. No record thereafter."

John Carlton II, born 1760, died 1837-38, Surry County. He served in the Revolutionary War, married Anna ?, in Spartanburg County SC, and then moved back to Surry County. This is the testimony of Elijah Carlton II, his grandson*.
Census records do place him in Surry County in 1810, 1820 and 1830, but do not show a son, only a daughter or young woman in his household. However Elijah Carlton does give a son:

1. John (Buck) Carlton, b 1792, d 1871, Scott Co Illinois. m (1) February 16, 1816, Surry Co, Lettice Morefield (1800-1852). m (2) March 18, 1859, Scott Co, IL, Milly Sweeton.

*But see Lunenburg County VA records where a John Curlton married Hannah Davis in 1783, apparently after a first wife, Sarah Moore, had died. The Carltons and Moores had been neighbors in Lunenburg County fifteen years earlier. Could "Anna" from South Carolina be "Hannah" from Virginia?
