[Editor's Note: While we can't be certain that these are in fact signers of the Randolph County petition we have been unable to locate a similar one for Moore County during the same time frame. Some of these names appear to be actual signatures while others are clearly written by the same person as other names around them. The Randolph County petition suffered from similar challenges including some signers that would be under 21 years old. Regardless, this is quite a list of northern Moore County residents during the late 1780's.]

Some of the Smiths from both Moore and Montgomery Counties in North Carolina migrated to Georgia. Among them were Everett, Gabriel, Jesse, and William." DESCENDANTS OF CAPTAIN BILLY SMITH, by Gregory S. Smith. FURTHER EXPLANATION IS GIVEN ON PAGES ONE AND TWO OF THE BOOK. William Smith was born February 26, 1763, Moore county, North Carolina, enlisted for service in the Revolutionary War in 1780, in Ninety-Sixth District, South Carolina. After the War he lived in Moore and Montgomery Counties in North Carolina. The Patterson?s also migrated from Moore county, North Carolina.
