Notes by Jonathan Gore

NC Archive, Folio 6, no page
From the Book "Revolutionary War Records of Duplin-Sampson Counties." By Virginia and Oscar Bizzell c1997.
John Gore and Jonathon Gore served in the NC Militia

Jonathan's brother William moved to Horry Co, SC.

Jonathan settled with his brothers in Brunswick Co, NC before the Revolution. .

William Gore was in Brunswick Co. by 1772 on a tax list for St. Philips Parish. And so far, no proof that Jonathan was there before he entered for a land grant in 1787. He was there already but don't know how long.

The 1790 census for Wilmington Dist. Brunswick Co shows:
Jonathan Gore
1 wm over 16 including HOH; 3 wm under 16; 5 wf - no slaves

This means in 1790 were living with him 3 sons under 16 and 4 daughters any age.
Leodicia m. 1789; Jemina m. 1788, based on the 1810 census Elizabeth m by 1790.
Living at home we presume Priscilla, Sarah, which leaves 2 missing females.
(Resided bet. John Canniday and Sarah Wingate) Nine households between these two: to wit: Sarah Wingate, Matthew Stevens, John Rhoads, Mary Rhoads, John Rogers, James Smith, John Thomas, John Lay.

The 1800 census for Brunswick Co, Page 21 line 18 shows:(The film I checked had Page 19A written on it)
Johnathan :
1 wm 10-16; 1 wm 16-26 10; 1 m 45 & over; 2 wf 10-16; 1 wf 45 & over

This translates for the children still in the household:
1 m b. betw. 1784 and 1790
1 m b. betw. 1774 and 1784
1 f b. betw. 1790 and 1800
1 f b. betw. 1784 and 1790

No further census records for Jonathon Gore who died in 1806.

~11 Jun 2002 Susan Formyduval Thomas went by the Horseford where Jonathan had his plantation. She described it as paradise compared to the others around there in 1780.... plenty of water and cool shade. Wildlife must have been abundant and still is.

Research Notes:
1790 all living at Horsepen Branch in Bughill, where Gore Chapel sits today

1800 all living at Horsepen - Jonathan, Joseph Sr., Bryant Rogers, isaac d'Auge and John simmons all in Iron Hill.

1810 Joseph Sr at Pireway at old Isaac Simmons estate. Joseph Jr. at Horsepen, on his own land not Jonathan's which went to Rogers. Joseph Jr's land was next door.

1820 Joseph Sr. in Pireway, Joseph Jr. not moved
