About Thomas Camp, V

JANUARY 1793 RUTHERFORD COUNTY, NC William Mills serves on jury in case of State vs. Thomas Camp. Defendant found not guilty. Charges not stated. Also on case of State vs. Stripling Byas, “jury withdrawn by consent.”

James Alan Williams, County Court Records, 1779–1794, Rutherford Co., NC (Banner, KY: Williams Publishing, 2014), 388-89. Cited in https://www.historicpathways.com/download/MillsRutherfordTryonLinco... by Elizabeth S. Mills.

This could apply to this Thomas or possibly to his father. It is likely related to charges of treason related to suspicions of being a loyalist during the Revolution, since Thomas Camp was among more than 100 Rutherford County men listed in July 1782 court proceedings as having fought with the British at Kings Mountain. [See Battle of Kings Mountain Project]:
