    Notes 
    • He was probably named for his Uncle, Charles GILLIAM of Prince George County. (James L. McLemore, III, p 40)

      Charles inhertied from his father the westernmost or upstream portion of the island (with some land on the south shore). This may have destined him for a life as a frontiersman. In 1730 he and his brother John (in Carolina for a visit?) witnessed a deed in Bertie Precinct, and in 1746 he is shown in Brunswick County, Virginia, deed as a Granville County Carolinia. There are no other references that can be clearly identified as referring to this Charles, and this may further then to indicate he was a frontiersman. A trader named Charles McLemore was known to have been living among the Cherokee Indians between 1754 and 1762, where he often served the colonial authorities as an interpreter. This may have well been our Charles, the son of James and Fortune. If so, then the only known children of this Charles would be the half Cherokee "Scotch Chiefs", John and Robert (Robin) McLemore for whom McLemore's Cove, Tennessee is named. (James L. McLemore, III, p 46).

      Various internet sources, none of which I know to be proven, show that Charles married Quatsey Wolf. It is further shown, again unverfied, that son Robin married So-Kinney Smith.

      Robert McLemore Butler (now deceased) noted that Sally McLemore b. 1779 and Peggy McLemore b. 1777 were daughters of Robert (Robin) McLemore, according to New Hanover County, NC records.
