I have Thomas's in Anson County NC.... One of the early deeds there reads: Deed (L&M-12) Anson NC. Dated 26 May 1798, Michail Austin to Benjamin Thomas. One hundred acres originally granted 10 Jul 1797 to Michail Austin. Situated on the East Side of Richardson's Creek and adjoining land of Benjamin Thomas. Witnesses were Henry Henson and William Shore.
Michael Austin moved to Chester County SC before likely moving to Lincoln County TN.
Also, Elizabeth, the daughter of James Allison Love married a Shore in Stokes County NC... I believe your SHORE family hail from there. Would like to learn more...

Thanks George. I don't see the connection at this time, but I have not gone back far enough yet. My G-grandfather William Shore was born c. 1855/56 and Rosanna Hinson/Henson was born c. 1860. According to my cousin Joey Shore, who's done a lot of research, William & Rosanna were married 8 May 1883 in Surry Co. NC. Surry and the surrounding counties are not very large and it is quite possible to live next door and be in a different county. Calvin Shore and Almeda (Hattie) Howell, parents of William Shore, were married in Surry Co. 1849. This puzzles me now even moreso because there had to be a meeting along the way of the Shore and Hinson families. Perhaps the William Shore in the deed was another close family member. This is all info I have at this time.e-mail Olegirl@aol.com
