    • "Capt. Aaron Smith, his wife Elizabeth Carraway, five children, and five slaves were massacred by the Cherokee indians on July 1, 1776.
      They originally migrated from Craven County, North Carolina on the North shore of the Neuse in present day Pamlico County near Oriental, North Carolina to Johnson County, North Carolina at the mouth of Carraway Creek and the Neuse near Goldsboro, North Carolina before moving to South Carolina. Aaron also held land in Anson County North Carolina on the Pee Dee between about 1758 to 1763."-Arthur K Smith, from Findagrave
