As per Carolyn Cade In reply to Toby Turner Re: Hampton, Harrison and Earle Families Dated November 29, 1999 (Earle Family Genealogy Forum) On page 304 of "The Venturers" the following Lineage is posted: Issue or James Harrison and his wife Elizabeth Hampton.

Florence Graham writes that her line (in the book) stops at the generation of her grandfather, Henry Atkins. (may be on pg 951?) Another book about Wade Hampton that has our line is "Giant in Gray" by Manly W. Wellman.

  iv.   Anthony Harrison, born 1776 in Surry, NC.
  Notes for Anthony Harrison:
The first child of James and Elizabeth Harrison was masacred by the Indians. See account as follows:

...Compiled from Dr. Jos. Johnson's "Traditions and Reminiscences of the Revolution," quoted in the "Atlnta Constitution," September 23, 1900, and from records furnished by Miss Kate Sloan Boardman of Greensboro, AL.

Anthony Hampton, the father of Colonel Wade Hampton, was among the first emigrants from Virginia to the upper part of South Carolina. He settled with his family on Tiger River, in Spartanburg District.
At the Commencement of the Revolution, it was of the utmost importance to the frontier inhabitants that the Cherokee Indians be conciliated and kept in peace. To effect this object, Edward, Henry and Richard Hampton, the sons of Anthony, were sent by their neighbors to invite the Nation to a "talk" at any convenient town they might proppose; but the British emissaries had been before them and and their mision came to nothing. In July 1776, the Indians and Tories attacked the settlement of the patriots and after destroying a number of families, they burned the house of Anthony Hampton, killed him, his wife, his son Preston, his infant grandson and carried off a boy named John Bynum in the employ of the Hamptons.
Elizabeth Hampton, the daughter of Anthony, had married James Harrison, and during his absence with the army, was living with her only child, an infant of a few months, at the home of her father. On the day of the attack, she had gone to the home of a neighbor, Mrs. Sadler, leaving her baby asleep in his cradle. They heard the firing in the direction of the Hampton place accompanied by the blood-curdling Indian war-whoop and hastened thither. Crossing the intervening swamp and creeping under cover to the edge of the yard or enclosure, they saw the place inpossession of the Tories and Indians. They were already intoxicated with the brandy that was, at that period, found in every house. The Indians had clothed themselves in the finery of the household, and were amusing themselves cutting open the feather beds and chasing the feathers over the yard. The mutilated dead body of Preston Hampton lay in plain view in teh yard; Elizabeth saw an Indian bring her little son from the burning house and dash his brains out against a tree.
They remained to see no more, but fled to Mrs. Sadler's house, secured what cold food they could, and taking to the woods, they hunted up and caught two of the horses that had been belled and turned out, and making hickory bark bridles, they rode to the nearest fort, alarming the country as they went.
After the war, the captured boy, John Bynum, escaped from the Indians and came back and lived and died in Greenville District. He stated that a few of the Indians approached the house in a peaceful guise and when Preston went out to meet them, he was shot from under cover; the party then scalped him and attacked the family.
Edward, Henry, Wade, Richard and John, the other sons of Anthony Hampton, and James Harrison, his son-in-law, were all officers in the army and absent at the time of the Massacre. They thus escaped to avenge the deed in the bitter and savage fighting that followed between the Tories, Indians and British and the Patriots under Sumter and Marion.

  Notes for Flora Bethune:
John Asher Dunn ( cc: dated Mon, 24 May 1999 wrote:
Flora Bethune was taken as a foster child into the home of Captain John Martin and Marion (Morag' "Sarah") MacLeod. She was raised with her future husband, Murdoch Martin. Evenso, her mother and her mother's parents were neighbors in North Carolina. The Campbells, MacDonalds, Bethunes and Martins were all Loyalists. Most of their families were left in the charge of women after the war, the men being dead or in exile. The families were vulnerable to constant raids and vandalism at the hands of their Patriot neighbors. Flora was probably placed in the Martin household for her protection, since after the war, Donald Campbell and his wife Katherine, in their ninties, were left alone, with only two widowed daughters to care for them, one of the two being Flora's mother, Christian.

Child of Murdoch Martin and Flora Bethune is:
  36 i.   John Bethune Martin, born Abt. 1791 in Moore County, NC; died Aft. 1848 in Holly Springs, MS; married (2) Nancy Hill Harris August 24, 1824 in Montgomery Co, NC.
