* Note - there were two Captains in NC named Thomas Harris.

This man was from Anson County and in the NC Continental Line. In 1780, he was promoted to Major in the Anson County Regiment.

The other Capt. Thomas Harris was from Mecklenburg County and known to be active during 1779. It is entirely possible that they were the same man - different sources make it difficult to determine.
