Recorded 24 Feb 1796. (D, 315-318)

NOTE: Charles Harrington (Jr) married Patience Braswell, she being the daughter of Valentine & Patience Braswell of Wake County.

It appears that William Braswell who married Sarah Lamar is a Braswell from Chatham Co., NC due to Henry Capehart proving and witnessing deeds for William Braswell's wife and daughters and Charles & Patience Harrington.

Interestingly Samuel Braswell, also from Chatham Co., NC was administrator of Samuel Lamar in Wilkes Co., Georgia, both of them appear to be Sarah Lamar Braswell's brother in laws, as well as a Clementius Davis, whose land was adjacent to Samuel Braswell on Buffalo Creek.
