That wouldn't surprise me. My ggrandfather wrote that Theophilus was from VA.
I've traced our McDs back to VA rough 1780s or so at this point, so it's very
slow, but 10 years ago all we had it back to was "GA prior to 1818." Now we
know it was VA up to about 1791, then SC or NC during the 1790s, and GA by 1800. Not sure
exactly where in the Carolinas, but definitely somewhere there.
