I am trying track the movement of my wife’s ancestor, Thomas CAMP. According to family lore, he moved to the Orange County/Durham area around 1765 and possibly operated a mill in the area. He and his large family migrated to Tryon County in 1775-1776 shortly after the conflicts in Alamance. There are conflicting reports that he was a Loyalist and a Whig with neither giving any reliable confirmatory support. I am trying to find information that positively places his family in Orange County and anything that might give answer to “”why”” he moved on to Tryon County. Any suggestions of help would be greatly appreciated,
