   George Williams drowned, he was from St. Joseph, LA.  He had come down in a skiff and when alongside the Ferry Boat and about to come ashore, his nose commenced bleeding profusely and he fainted and fell over the boat side.
S. B. STAMPLEY,
who was near the scene, nobly jumped overboard after him, without even waiting to divest himself of his clothing, but without avail, as the body never rose again.  Our citizens sent for a cannon which was fruitlessly used for 3 days and the search was given up in despair.

From Jefferson County Stories by Gordon A. Cotton:

".......At the Holston, they had to build flatboats and didn't begin their journey until late in 1780.  On the first boat were the Curtis, Jones, Courtney and Stampley families......."

".......for a decade, Richard Curtis, Jr. and his friends had been worshipping quietly, but in October, 1791, they decided to form themselves into an organized church.  They met at the home of
Margaret Stampley, a widow, and chose Richard Curtis as pastor.......Charter members included the Curtises: Richard, William and Benjamin, William Thompson, John Jones, Ealiff Lanier and Margaret Stampley.  Most likely the wives of the men were also members."

BALDRIDGE

From Sketches of Western North Carolina:

    At different times subsequently, Major Forney volunteered in several short expeditions as far as the South Carolina line, for the purpose of intimidating and keeping down the rising spirit of the Tories, who were numerous in this section of country, and required a strict vigilance to hold them in a state of subjection.  Early in June, 1780, when a call was made upon the militia, he volunteered in CAPTAIN JOHN BALDRIDGE'S company, marched to a temporary rendezvous at Ramsour's and thence to Espey's, where they joined other troops under the command of Col. William Graham and Lt. Col. Hambright.  The united forces then proceeded to Lincoln 'old Court House' near Moses Moore's, the father of Col. John Moore, the Tory leader, and marched and countermarched through that section of country.
