1...Samuel French was born about 1727 and is, first, found in Anson Co.,, NC when he witnesses a deed in 1748. He is on the tax list in Anson Co.,NC, in 1763, along with James French, who could be his brother or father. When Samuel is found, next, in Rutherford Co., NC, on the 1782 tax schedule, James is not with him, but Samuel's sons, Thomas, and Samuel are of age. There is, also, a Moses French in the area who is, most likely, Samuel's son. Samuel, also, had son, John, who came of age after they moved to Greeneville, SC by 1790.
