      reason they did not index Isaac. You will note that he lives next door
      to Levi Banks Cobb. On the other side of Levi is Isaac Gentry,
      Alexander's step brother (of half brother, depending on the

      Just looked closer to Mary Lawhon's 1850 census, sorry I misread the
      88 yr. old. female as a male. This would very possibly be Mary's
      mother, born in Maryland. Here are some other clues that may be of
      assistance.

      It Was Not Easy To Vote in 1779

      "In 1779 the outlook for the success of the American Revolution had
      grown very dim. This year and the next were to be the darkest hours
      for the patriots. Kinston, the home town of Governor Richard Caswell, had
      become the de facto capital of the new State. Here the State's Board
      of War usually met in secret sessions. Sometimes the Council of State met
      here. Sessions of the General Assembly, being more a matter of public
      knowledge, usually were convened at larger and more heavily guarded
      towns. While the name of the town was changed from Kingston to Kinston
      by law in 1784, already by 1779 the patriots were calling it Kinston
      in derision of the King of England from whose title the original name
      derived.
      The vote in the general election in 1779 required the highest
      patriotic conviction. If the Revolutionary cause failed, each of these voters
      would be marked as among the rankest seditionists. For these were the
      men of Dobbs County who closest held to heart the pledge of the
      Declaration of Independence, the pledge of "our sacred honor." This
      list of Dobbs voters is complete but does not complete her roll of honor,
      for there were those who were away with the armies in the field and the
      women whose names do not appear on this list. Still, these are the
      fathers and brothers and staunch supporters of those who fought, and
      each of them deserves to be remembered.
      Even to those whose resolute patriotism stilled all fear of the
      possibility of danger in defeat, to vote was no easy matter. The
      voting place was at the old Dobbs County Courthouse erected near Walnut Creek
      about midway between present LaGrange and Goldsboro. Dobbs County
      included practically all of the areas now comprised in Lenoir, Greene
      and Wayne Counties, and it was from these areas that the voters came
      on horseback to cast the vote of freemen in a ? State. Because of the
      distances, the polls were open for two days, March 10th and 11th.
