"On Dec. 26, 1770, Mr. Sugg of Edgecombe County presented a certificate from Edgecombe County Court to the North Carolina General Assembly recommending that John Stringer (and others) be exempt from the payment of public duties. Certificates of this type were usually based on age or infirmity; John Stringer died the next year. (Information provided by the publication "Southern Kith and Kin.") Edgecombe County deed book C, p. 346: 'John Stringer and wife, Katherine, of Edgecombe County, to John Folk of Dobbs County, North Carolina, July 24, 1764, for 50 pds Proc money date tract of 267 acres on Tyanco Key Swamp, granted to John Cahoon, sold to Micajah
Cahoon, and by the latter sold to John Stringer.'"

"Noah received a commission from the governor of Georgia in the Burke County Militia in 1790. He purchased a piece of land from William McGehee in Montgomery County, Georgia, on Aug. 29, 1803. Noah is listed on the October 1806 jury list for Montgomery County. [Source for the above three items: Montgomery County Georgia: a source book of genealogy and history by Dorsey and Derden, p. 193.] Noah Stringer first appears on the tax rolls for Lawrence County, Mississippi, in 1819. He is listed on the 1827 tax roll for Monroe County, Mississippi. Source: "Texas Society DAR Roster of Revolutionary Ancestors," Volume 4, p. 2037. Source: "Family Records, Mississippi Revolutionary Soldiers," Alice Tracy Welch, 1953 -- 1956. Revolutionary war veteran; private, Captain Sharp's company, NC line. In addition to his own children, Noah and Celia raised their granddaughter, Evaline Hogan, daughter of Abea (Abby), who probably died in childbirth."

"If this is the Nancy Scarborough listed on the 1840 census of Lawrence County, Mississippi, there may be some discrepancy with her age. That Census says that Nancy was between 50 and 60 years of age, placing her birthdate between 1780 and 1790. She was probably older . . . John, Jr. died around 1771."

"According to researcher Dorothy Stringer Roberts, Daniel moved from North Carolina to South Carolina, then to northern Georgia and finally to Missouri. The following information was abstracted from the publication "Southern Kith and Kin." It is presumed that this Daniel moved to Georgia, as there are no records of him in Edgecombe County, North Carolina after 1790. From the official records, it is thought that he was a member of the Regulators. In 1773, he purchased 198 acres south of Tyancokey Swamp from David Bunn, Sr. In 1781,
when the British passed through the area, he was involved with the authorities, probably because of his involvement with the Regulators. He received a pardon from Gov. Thomas Burke, having joined the command of Col. Henry Hart. In October 1782, governor Alexander Martin granted Daniel 242 acres north of Town Creek and south of Tyancokey Swamp; Daniel and Ann later sold this property to Abner Roberson. (Witnessed by Katy Stringer, probably his mother, Katherine.) In 1785, Daniel and Nancy Stringer sold the original 198 acres to Abner Roberson."
