Res - from "Chatham Co 1771-1971"
p 357  A very early settler in the Pittsboro area was Charles
Harrington(1720-1773), who patented a great deal of land in and around
the town. He was a regulator and died from wounds received at the battle
of Almance. His wife, Agnes, was cleared of an indictment for sheltering
a regulator. Their son, Sion, was twice captured by Tories during the
revolution.
His wife, Elizabeth, with an infant in arms, rode horseback the 80 miles
to Elizabethtown to plead successfully for his release. (Sion was the
great-grandfather of Charles McIver, the first President of the
University of N.C. at Greensboro. Philemon, a colonel in the Light Horse
had many encounters with the infamous Tory, David Fanning. Another son,
Whitmel also had many encounters with him.
